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


I bought this car as a commuter car. It is great. I get 34 mpg combined driving. It is cute, the girls love it. I did not buy it for that though. It made sense to me a good value in a nice package. I drive a lot and was driving a big truck, the monthly payment and gas for this car is cheaper than the gas for my truck. I read many reviews on the internet and reliability is up there too. For a sub compact it is quiet. Lots of features for the money. It has a small engine but has enough power to get me up hills at the speed limit. I'm very happy with it.

Best Features

Roomy interior, well made, gas sipping not guzzling, comfortable, 5/4 star crash rating, I got the power package option.

Worst Features

better crash rating for back seat (3 star), a few more factory options, better stereo, alarm, adjustable passenger seat like drivers. overall though no big complaints.
