2007 Kia Rio Wagon Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My Kia Rio5 has been in the shop this past month 5 times for the same issue! Kia will only approve the minimal amount of repairs and has yet to fix my vehicle. For the last month, I have been without my car and after the engine and oxygen sensor has been replaced, the vehicle is still broken. What does Kia say??? Nothing. They will not return my phone calls. Whats the use of a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty, if Kia will not make good on it! Don't buy Kia! The cars are cute and fuel efficient, but not dependable and Kia does not stand behind their product!


Worst Features

Actually make good on the warranty that is built into the price of the car.

2007 Kia Rio Wagon Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Drives better on the highway than I thought it would for a small car-I was pleasantly surprised at the lack of effect on the car when semi trucks passes me or I passes semi trucks-I expected to be pushed around on the road more than I was


Worst Features

Dealers should have more cars available with ABS-don't short change safety to keep the price down

2007 Kia Rio Wagon Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Have had this car for 1 year and what a mistake. Should have stayed w/Hyundai Accent but they didn't offer a 4dr hatch. Have had a constant speed sensor problem on the auto trans. The car is slow, handles poorly in the snow and less than good gas mileage. Avg 28 combined city/hywy. Should get better mileage w/such a small engine.


Best Features

Looks and the 4dr hatch body.


Worst Features

Better quality, more power, better auto trans

2007 Kia Rio Wagon Rio5 SX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Just sit in one. This model has a nice sporty interior. Leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter. Sport stitched seating. The exterior is sporty with a unique look not to be mistaken for all the other models out there in it's class. Though it's not going to win any races, it is fun to drive. It handles well and sticks to the road. It's a compact car, so the ride is a little bumpy. It has front and side front airbags as standard safety equipment.


Best Features

The design inside and out. It doesn't look like all the other cars on the road. Unique front and rear design. The sidelines are a thing of beauty.


Worst Features

The only quirky thing is the digital display and instrument panel uses an almost army green color. It's a little bit of a clash to the black and red sport interior.

Review

The Kia Rio5 SX is actually a fine car. The mileage has been excellent (though not quite what I'd expect), the ride is very good and the design is really eye-pleasing. Overall, no one who has been in and seen this car can believe that it is a Kia and that it comes in at such a low cost.


Best Features

The interior design and the roominess of the hatch back.


Worst Features

Needs an MP3 jack as standard equipment. ABS is really hard to find.
