Basic and loud but reliable.

I have driven this car for 10 years, and it has been extremely reliable with hardly any non-regular maintenance needed. I have used it as a commuter car for most of that time, and the gas mileage is pretty good for how old the car is. The interior does feel cheap and there are no special features. It is not the most comfortable car for extended trips. The doors are fairly thin, which causes quite a bit of road noise.

The most important thing about my car is everything is very cheap.

I love that my Kia rio does not drink a lot of gas. My car have a very good warranty on it some people tell me its the best. I do not have a lot of problem out of it. It get me to point a to point b so I love it 4 that. Parts are very cheap on my car.

The car is a bit weak, but overall incredibly reliable.

I like that the vehicle has manual windows and has clear visibility. I Don't like the manual locks. The car is also very small, but that's okay. It also is not very powerful and has a hard time going up hills.

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 an economic car. The car is easily handled. Sometimes it gets a bit lazy when the a/c is on.
