Great Car at a good price

2008 Kia Rio Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased this car pre-owned with only 4000 miles on it. I haven't had any problems out of it to date. I do notice that when i drive it after sitting over night the rear brakes tend to be touchy and squeak some. The engine also tends to have a little rattle to it when it is cold. Not sure why it does that but once it warms up it is flawless. it may have something to do with the CVT.

Favorite Features

I have had several comments on the sporty interior (SX RIO5). I like the AUX jack for my Iphone, and the sound system sounds decent.

Suggested Improvements

Cruise Control would be nice, lose the plastic trim around the exterior. I noticed they dropped it on the new models for 2010 :). Shorter shifter would make gear changes smoother. Disc Brakes in the rear would be a nice addition to the good brakes already available. A six-speed would make it perfect
