2004 Kia Rio 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's been great so far! Milage,
comfort, design, all very good.I've
owned concordes and intrepids that had
the luxury upgrades that seem to have
more problems AND the warranty was not
as good!


Best Features

Easy access to everything while driving.


Worst Features

If anything to be improved at this price level I would say driving on the freeways is not as comfortable as I thought it should be. When you ride over a bump or something at a higher speed, it frees like you riding over a railroad track.

Vehicle

2004 Kia Rio 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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 highway speeds.

2004 Kia Rio Cinco 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchase a 2004 Rio Cinco wagon and
absolutely love it!! It is
comfortable to drive, responds well,
gets good gas mileage (better when A/C
is off), the instrument panel is well-
placed. It could be a little faster
on take-off, but I can live with
that. I absolutely love my Cinco -
and I have always driven larger cars.
I'd definitely recommend this one!


Best Features

Price (naturally), comfort, and fun to drive! A lot of extras for the price.


Worst Features

Would improve power on take-off and include cruse control.
