Don't even think about it...

2005 Kia Rio 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


I got this car for my first car and i am desperately trying to get rid of this thing! Two weeks after i got it, 2 of my belts needed replacing. Not only did the dealer keep it for 3 weeks to "fix it", the day that i got it back the fan stopped working and my car overheated. Needless to say we sent it back to the dealer. They fixed the fan, but ever since then i've been having radiator problems. Constant overheating, had to replace all sensors, etc.. Not worth a penny, but if you do decide to get one make sure you keep a full jug of coolant in your back seat!

Best Features

I have no likes about this car, the only thing i can say is that it is easy to drive...if it's drivable at that moment.

Worst Features

Stop making this car, it's junk.
