Econonmical yet sporty by Michael on 07/01/2009. Trim: 2003 Kia Rio Cinco Wagon, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: First of all .. YOU have to understand I had a Saturn SC1 for a year and quickly got rid of it due to an oil leak. I couldn't fix it no matter how much money I thew at it. ..I then got the Kia Rio Cinco 2003 for a song and LOVED it . First thing I noticed .. it seemed reliable, secondly .. ok, its sporty and cute, and third .. It IS a fun car to drive with a stick... with the cool wheels, automatic windows, nice... also My kids can throw their stuff in the back and we can go camping or whatever. Please note if you decide to go with the stick shift, acceleration isn't a problem, atleast not for me.
Cons: To be frank .. This is a well put together car and a strong motor...especially for the money. Thankyou Kia. I did get a 120 thousand mile warranty to be on the safe side though. I can not think of any cons.
Overall review: A fine car that is economical and sporty.

Only buy if.... by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/16/2008. Trim: 2003 Kia Rio Cinco Wagon, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Good gas mileage
Cons: Acceleration a big problem. Seats hard, small and uncomfortable. Seats 5, but very uncomfortably. Paint issues. KIA dealerships few and far inbetween. KIA demands ALL service be done there (even oil and transmission fluids, etc. as the warranty is void if you don't use their products, etc....this is enforced!)
Overall review: Only buy if short term ownership is your thing....then short term becomes a problem because of resale value being so low regardless of condition. Also, if you choose to refi, the small print on almost apps says the only exclusions are KIA or Hundai. There's a reason for that!
