Kia Rio Cinco Worst car ever
By Joe Cacadeech on
2005 Kia Rio Cinco 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)
I bought the Rio as mainly a commuter car and I regret I did. It's really cramped interior whether in the front or back. If that's not enough the totally underpowered engine will make you sick. The gas mileage is terrible considering how small the car is (average 19 city/25 hwy); come on it doesn't even compare to cars that are bigger or have more power, and forget about merging onto a highway or passing. If you're considering a car in this market, avoid this one at all costs and go with the also Korean made Chevy Aveo. Trust me the Kia is terrible. But to be fair it does start up every morning and it has an excellent warranty
It's small enough to park anywhere.
More power, more room for people taller than 5' 4", tighten up the squeaky interior, and how about better gas mileage.
