2005 Kia Rio Cinco 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Since purchasing my Kia Rio Cinco in 2003, I haven't had any major problems with the vehicle. I have had to take it back to have about seven items repaired or replaced. My biggest complaint is the lack of horsepower and poor gas mileage.

Best Features

I like the look of the rear end of the vehicle. Styling Similar to an old Jaguar XKE 2+2 or the new Mercedes 280. I like the stereo. Not a bad sound.

Worst Features

Should offer other horsepower engines up to at least 160 hp. I installed ram air on the vehicle which seems to have helped both the horsepower and gas mileage after you reach about 40 mph and you can feel the ram air start to kick in; not turbo like but noticeably better.
