Very cost effective, run a great and great mpg

Smooth ride, great mileage, nice exterior. Interior a bit cramped and rear view mirror creates blind spots.

Great Small Car

Car runs well. I feel the road a little too much. But for such a lightweight car I guess that makes sense. Otherwise super dependable.

I love my new Rio

When my old car started to have needs that I couldn't keep up with, I decided to take the plunge and buy a new one. I wanted the security of a warranty, and I got an extremely fair price on the car. Modern options- aux hook-up, bluetooth, sleek styling were standard. The one downside- my base model doesn't have power locks or power windows, but for the price on the car, I was ok with it. The last week with it has been great- it rides quietly and smooth and it's been a great experience so far.

An affordable reliable car

I'm driving with this car 70 miles daily. There is enough leg room for front seats but not for back. I'm not comfortable with hearing engine noisy sound inside the room but overall I like it because I have a pretty reliable car with excellent after sale services by paying only 13000 bucks.

funniest and most stylish car i've owned

the outside looks amazing i'm a four-eyed dork work some quirks and tiny bit of edge so this car matches me perfectly. It's a cute edgy design the seats are comfortable, firm and the cars a zippy little thing. the acceleration is slow maybe 60 sec and the back seat space is cramped for tall folk but thats because they made a huge trunk like fit a few bodies in size. i love the music system and the lx version i got was inexpensive and prob a loaded version cause the things gots bluetooth and other greays features lux vehicles have. This is my commuting and cruising car so the gas 27/34, tunes, and comfort are big must on my list whoch this car gives in a ton. best description big surprises come in small packages

first time in a car this new

I have had this car for almost 3 weeks now and I love it. It's great in gas, fast food a 4cyl, and cute. My kids and I love the hands free Bluetooth for calling. It's safe and easy to make and answer calls without the distraction of holding the phone. The air conditioning is COLD and works great. It's just what a single mom, of two, needed. We've been very happy with our recent purchase!

Greatest car I've owned so comfortable

This car met all my needs since I have a spinalcord injury I needed something smooth on the road not something that I could feel to many bumps etc . My nerve damage is to severe and this car makes things so much better for me in my life !
