Good Economy Car by Charlie from Oakdale, MN on 10/21/2010. Trim: 2010 Kia Rio5 LX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Good gas mileage, reasonably comfortable (I am 6'5" w/long legs and don't fit well in any car), hatchback style for transporting large items, good value for money spent
Cons: hard, somewhat noisy, ride (product book says "smooth and quiet"...it is not), rear license plate rattles against hatchback door...extremely annoying (I will fix this myself), no temp gauge (you only know when it overheats, but I would like to see an actual gauge)
Overall review: Had a 1991 Ford Festiva 3-door hatchback (made by Kia). That was a great car (drove it 200k) and, so far, my Rio 5 isn't as good, but time will tell

Very Good Basic Transporation by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/05/2010. Trim: 2010 Kia Rio5 LX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Appearance, warranty, handling and head room (I'm 6'2").
Cons: Acceleration is sluggish, ingress and egress for a tall person is awkward.
Overall review: I think I got exactly what I paid for and what I was expecting, a decent, economical car at a very good price.

Best deal on wheels! by Mike on 04/17/2010. Trim: 2010 Kia Rio5 SX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: MPG (32.6), nice sport cloth and leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and cruise control (all with a sporty red stitching), metal pedals, sporty exhaust tip, standard sirius radio, fog lights and 16 inch alloy wheels also standard. This is my 4'th Rio since 2001 and I never had a problem with any of them, and thats doing 3K miles per month under rough conditions such as extreme heat and a lot of Miami traffic!
Cons: Needs a trip meter!
Overall review: Fun to drive, peppy engine and great bang for the buck. Plus I dont blend in, I stand out unlike the 100 million sheeple, err.. I mean people driving Corolas, Civics and Fit's!
