The Kia Rio SX is not what you want

2012 Kia Rio SX 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6A)
Review
I bought the Kia Rio SX automatic thinking it would be something that would save me a lot of money, however, it's been nothing but a disappointment. The mileage is terrible. I live in a rural area, nice long windy roads, no stops, no traffic. Using it's "city" mileage reference, I get 24-26 in the city, on the highway I average a solid 29. I'm an old guy and I drive with a light foot. So far this car has over 20k on it and the gas mileage has not improved. You can see where kia tried to make it fuel efficent by limited weight, but it equates to cheap materials: cheap plastic, chinsy seating material that rips. Don't buy this car. It has been my biggest regret. Get a Fit.
Favorite Features
Interior is designed well.
Suggested Improvements
Don't lie about the MPG, use a better engine, better transmission and overpricing cheap vehicles.
