Great reliable automobile

The best car i have ever owned!!! Key is to take care of it. Do what is recommended for routine maintenance. Excellent on gas!!!! Change that timing belt every 100,000 miles!!! Love my ride and it’s paid off!!! Sweet!!!


Great compact car! Awesome on gas!

I love my Kia Rio. It is a bare bones basic model with power nothing! I even have crank windows! It isn’t pretty, she has a dent underneath the drivers door, and just recently, it was backed into by my neighbor. She hit it hard and smashed in my drivers side fender, so every time you turn the wheel left the liner which is also broken rubs the tire. Thankfully the hat is plastic. My door is bent and does not fully open. The insurance company totaled it, but I took it back and we order d a new fender and liner. I will replace the door later. I just in the last year had to replace my waterpump, catalytic converter, o2 sensor and one other sensor. It only has 137,0000 miles and I own it outright and not ready for another car payment.
