That it does not have a lot of room. The spare tire is in a well in the trunk and if you use your trunk. You may have to empty a lot of stuff out to get to your spare tire.

My KIA Rio has great gas mileage. I think it is too small, I would like a roomier car that provides more luggage space. It also has an odd tire and they are more expensive.

It is durable and runs great! I am thankful for it.

I don't like how it looks anymore as my aunt wrecked it many years ago, but I am thankful it gets me where I need to go!
