2006 Kia Rio LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


The car now has 14,000 miles and so far no problems. It handles/drives very nicely for a car of this class. I test drove a Nissan Sentra and a Honda Civic and they did not drive as good as this Kia. It is quiet on the road even at highway speeds. It performs well, engine is peppy. The automatic transmission shifts very smoothly. It steers/brakes excellently, turns nicely. Radio sounds great. Trunk has spacious room for this type of car, especially with rear seat backs folded down. I get 32.7 MPG combined with mostly city/heavy urban driving. You get good value for the money with this car.

Best Features

comfortable drive, looks, sound of radio, gas mileage, interior room, trunk space, gauges on dash laid out nicely for easy view, you can open trunk and gas cap door with latches on drivers floor board, good outside views through windshields and side windows

Worst Features

arm rest for passenger side, better designed console, tinted glass, I would like to see 45-50 MPG with this car
