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


My 2006 rio5 has already 385,000 km on it and is still running perfectly. It's my second rio, I drive it for a living, and I love the car, I cannot say a bad word about it, it never gave me any problems at all. The only thing I fixed so far are: ball joints, wheel bearings, tie rods (rough country roads) & fuel purge valve (filthy north American gasoline) buy the car new, maintain it well, don't drive it like a maniac (I. E. Floor the gas pedal), change oil every 5000 km, timing belt every 100,000, put premium fuel in it and she will never fail you! To the guy whose rio stalls & overheats on the hwy: go buy a tank!

Best Features

gas mileage, reliability, comfort, acceleraton

Worst Features

the only thing I'd suggest is adding a 6th gear... the rpm gets a bit high @ 130km/hr
