    2011 Kia Rio

    Plainest little car you'll ever love

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: Appearance

    This is my second 'base model' Kia Rio, I love it! Never have to drop a gear going up big hills. I like the simplicity, feeling the road, and reliability. My last Kia didn't owe me a dime when I finally traded it at 130k. Great warranty, nice car as long as your ego isn't hooked to the cool factor of your ride.

    2004 Kia Rio

    Kia Rio

    Pros: trunk and gas tank release

    Cons: thin steel wheels

    Good basic transportation, the steel wheels are easily bent on bad roads and quite pricey to replace. Very little maintance and starts very well even in cold weather. All over the high fuel prices this is a good comuter car average 30 MPG.

    2006 Kia Rio - Base (M5)

    Pros: Full-Length Curtain Airbags and the warranty

    Cons: It is a small car and Im a Big Guy - ( but the car is for my wife anyway and she loves it )

    Advice: It is a nice car, full of air bags and comes with the 100,000 miles warraty

    We bougth the Kia Rio because we were looking for a good gas mileage. My mother had a Sephia 98 and my brother as well they never had any problems with their cars at all. So that help me decide. I looks pretty and is very secure with the Full-Length Curtain Airbags. And it drives very nice too.
