Be carefull of the brakes!
By smith3425 on


2008 Kia Rio LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Be very careful of the brakes. I had to slam on my breaks for the first time after 2 years of owning the car. Another car pulled in front of me and stopped and when I hit the brakes the card just slid. I had no control of the car at all. My children and I slid across 3 lanes of oncoming traffic and right off the road nearly getting hit several times. After the breaks lock there is no controlling the car at all. Ever since I have been terrified to even drive the speed limit for fear that I will have to hit the brakes. If you are concerned about buying a car with top notch safety features this is not the one for you!

Best Features

Color, gas mileage, spacious trunk.

Worst Features

Improve the brakes. There is no reason that a car should put a family in danger like this.
