The car costs just under 10,000. I use
it almost completly on the highway, and
I have been getting on average 40 mpg.
Not the most powerful car, but it will
get up to highway speeds just as well as
any other car with a 4 cylinder engine.
The interior has plenty of little
things that don't seem to matter until
you have them. It has cup holders you
can actually use for more than a can.
I'm 6'2" and I fit comfortably inside
the car without hitting my head. The
gearshift could be set a little farther
back though. I have to move my leg when
shifting in the low gears. Overall, for
the price, and for the amount I save on
fuel, it is a great car for the money.
Cup holders that actually work. The
headlights automatically shut off when
the key is turned off. Very roomy trunk
for size of car. Large map/CD holders
in side of doors.
Radio should be standard. Shifts kind
of hard when cold. Running lights stay
on instead of turning off with the
headlamps. Engine is kind of loud at
I bought a new 2004 bright red Kia Rio
about a week ago. Four days after i
bought it, it stopped working. it has
been in the shop evesince... they
cannot figure out what is wrong and
they have to contact the company bc
they believe there will be more
problems on other kias like mine...some
parts of the car are cheapy looking
plastic but overall it is a nice car.
other than the major problems ive had,
i love the car... when i get to drive
CD player, arm rest, adjustable seat
acceleration is a bit slow at the
beginging... gas tank is only 11 gallons
