If someone else is driving my car, the most important thing they should know is that the door handle on the driver side broke this month and I have not yet repaired it. They need to know this because they will have to roll down the window to open it. They should also know that the air conditioning works but sometimes when you turn it off it will turn back on. So you may have to return it to the off position a couple times for it to remain in the off position. It may be easier to just turn the AC temperature to neutral so that it is just not cooling the air that is blowing.

My major complaint about my vehicle would be the cost of repair when I do have to repair it. It also is at a point where it is starting to experience a lot of issues, which is frustrating because my boyfriend's toyota is 6 years older with the same mileage and doesn't exhibit the same level of degradation as my vehicle. What I do like about it is the gas mileage, it is a small vehicle and I do feel like I spend a lot less in gas than most people do which is great. I also kind of like that it's not an impressive looking car because I have never had an issue with my car being broken in to despite having lived in Hollywood for a long period of time. I have had several friends express that they have had issues with that in the area and I have accidentally left my car unlocked several times with no issues and I believe it is the result of it being a simple unimpressive/not attention drawing vehicle.

Very reliable car. Safe. And pocket friendly on gas.

This is an older car with just shy of 200, 000 miles on it but has no problems whatsoever. Since buying it I just maintain the fluids and check any sounds that sounds off if they occur to prevent and future mechanical problems. This is a very reliable car that saves gas being a 4 cylinder. It's not your go fast and powerful muscle car but gets me from A to B. It has no ac till I put a new compressor but that's not a priority at this moment. My next maintenance will be a new tire and all new brakes. I got this car for a very good deal and will make a profit on future sale but for now it's my street licensed go kart.

Reliable Kia Rio hatchback.

I have not experienced many problems at all with this vehicle. It drives great, good on gas mileage, and I never worry that it's not reliable. It is very simply made. Power windows and locks, CD player, automatic transmission. Mine is the hatchback which I happen to love. Holds more in the back than it seems. The only thing I don't like about it is the belts are not self adjusting. So you end up having to take it to a mechanic unless you have someone to help you that knows what they're doing because it's a two person job. Other than that I have nothing bad to say about it.
