2006 Kia Rio 5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Brand new with 100000mi/10yr warranty...well we have 20,000 miles and already have taken it to the shop 6 times. 2 recalls,1 radio not working, 1 power steering pump thing, 2 for transmission, no acceleration (very dangerous problem) and this problem is acting up again. The availability of parts for the car has been a nightmare of rental cars. The gas mileage is great but I think the car may wear out before the warranty. Wife thinks the trunk is too small...but we could see that. Plus due to my credit we are paying a lot for the car (no choice) so I don't feel we are getting our monies worth! Strongly consider NOT buying this model.

Best Features

Wife says Princess lights, no forgetting to turn lights off. Me - I like the gas mileage, long trips are made bearable knowing I am saving a few dollars.

Worst Features

Uh...a lot.
