It's a good, basic. compact vehicle. Repairs are usually reasonable.

This is a basic model, no power windows or doors. I like that it's compact and easy to drive. I do feel a little bit that it's made of plastic. The car is older, and has many clunks and clatters that go with an older vehicle. Weather stripping and window seals are starting to come off. When it was in it's prime, it was a very enjoyable car to drive.

Kia Rio: the small person's ideal to town car.

Overall, it's a very nice vehicle. It is a little small if you are a large person though. I had issue with the window lining though. I had to replace them. The seats are only good for short car rides, add extra cushion for longer than 2 hours. The carpet and seats are very easy to clean though.

- Hannah H

It is a cute car. I like that it is a hatchback.

We bought my car for $500. It didn't run. We have put over $2000 to make it run. It had $800 of tires on it. No power anything. The ac does not always work. The windshield is cracked. The black rubber around the windows is coming off. The belts squeal. The belts need tightened every 3 months.
