Wished I had purchased one sooner. . .

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

Review

It's roomy enough for four adults, very fun to drive around town, and gets a whopping average 35 miles per gallon (50% highway, 50% city driving.) It's very pleasant at all speeds (never taken it over 80 mpg). What an amazing value! I wish I had purchased a car like this sooner. I listed "Performance" as only a 7 because it's not designed to be a race car. It's a 4-cylinder, therefore performance should be a little sub- par. That said, I've never had a problem keeping pace at a light, or going uphill.

Favorite Features

It's minimalist, simplistic style. No fluff, no gee-whiz features, no built in GPS. It's just a car. I love the price, the value, and the warranty.

Suggested Improvements

I'm getting a small rattle in the stereo-dash area. I suspect build-quality may not be that of a Lexus, so this falls within reason to me.
