I bought my Kia Rio new, with 28 miles on it, and now have over 60k miles on it.
It came with a great warranty and I've had all scheduled maintenance required to keep the warranty active.
I have never had any trouble out of it.
The only cons I can mention is that the brakes sound like they are grinding when you first apply them in a damp or wet environment, but after the first application that sound goes away.
I have them checked every time I go in for service and they are always ok.
The other thing is the fact that the ride is a little noisier than I prefer, but you will find that to be the case with all small cars.
I average about 33-35 mpg.
Keep up the maintenance, it will last!
Great gas mileage.
Very responsive handling.
Surprisingly roomy trunk.
Great head room for a small vehicle.
Back seat needs more leg room.
Not the greatest car for carrying adult passengers.
