2010 Kia Rio LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car because at the time, I had no choice. I needed a cheap car with a good warranty. Well, you get what you pay for! I had a small fender bender, hitting a car at 10 miles per hour. It resulted in a total breakage of the ball joint. My husband, an ASE certified master technician, took one look and could not believe the poor quality (he is convinced it broke first, causing the accident!) It was great on gas, but that's about it. I just got rid of the thing, for a beautiful Mazda crossover, and I've never been happier!


Best Features

Great on gas!


Worst Features

Just scrap and get a better quality car.

2010 Kia Rio LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Not happy with dark interior, car is too hot inside & must have window covered by sunshade. Other than that, I haven't had a brand new car for MANY years, and I love this one. I was on the bus three years before deciding to buy this car.


Best Features

It looks like every other gray car in a parking lot, except that the shape of it in front & back is slightly different & the antennae is unique looking. I can always find MY car.


Worst Features

A key holder feature for opening the trunk, the key holder unlocks & locks main doors only, does not pop the trunk open.

See above + I love USB port and auxilary jack!


Worst Features

Needs remote start option

2010 Kia Rio Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car. It is so sporty with all the cool features (see below). It is not as commonly seen as its rivals (Corolla, Civic, Fit, and Yaris) so it stands out a lot more!


Best Features

Leather wrapped steering wheel. Stereo controls on steering wheel w/ cruise control, metal pedals, Sirius radio, red stitched sport cloth, fog lights, hatch is awesome! I just love it!


Worst Features

Needs an optional remote start!

2010 Kia Rio Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This little car is amazing. First of all I am 6'3" 245 pounds and have plenty of room! MPG are 30.4 after 2k miles of mixed driving with AC on. Not too shabby at all! Amenities are bar none for this class (read below for more on that).


Best Features

Leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio and cruise controls. USB jack and auxiliary jack for my music listening convenience! Nice red stitched sport cloth. Great little peppy/sprightly engine, nice stereo, great 16 inch rims! FUN TO DRIVE!


Worst Features

Needs a trip meter like on my 2010 Forte!
