2012 Kia Rio EX 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6A)

Review

My 12 Rio5 has 37k highway miles. The car has been a total disappointment. The car has received road blast and rusted after the past 2 winters. Trim inside has just fallen down due to disappearing clips. "Leather" steering wheel delaminated. Vent fan bearings going. Tires were garbage and mileage was not as advertised. The car was a real waste of money. Needless to say, I will be at the dealership again next week. Save yourself the hassle and stay away from these Kia beauties.

Hands free calling is about it.

Suggested Improvements

Make the car out of metal that wasn't rejected for razor blades?!?!? Maybe a QA on the production line?

Highly curious what state this Kia was purchased in, as there is normally underbody coating to discourage premature rust problems. Living near the ocean or where Highways are salted during winter can VASTLY accelerate oxidizing rust.
