2001 Kia Rio 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought it used with 98,000 miles. Now it has 138,000. I have driven it across the country and back, with no porblems and good gas mileage Mine gets in the low 30's city, and high 30's highway. It doesnt have much power, put it still runs good at 80 mph, and topped it out at 116. If you don't mind an odd looking car, then get it. It dont have ac or power steering, but its small and not hard to steer, and ac is overated.

Best Features

The engine is real straight forward and easy to work on. Everything is in plain sight and you don't have to dig around to find anything. You can change oil without even jacking it.

Worst Features

Body design. It is very odd looking.
