2007 Kia Rio Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Rio
2007 Kia rio, dust orange in color.
Seeing as my car is a 2007 model, there are no particularly special features like newer models of cars have (i.e.; automatic windows, a button to start the car, pressing a button on your key to lock all the doors in the car, a way to detect when there is an obstruction/other car too close to your own), however, these are all things that I do not mind dealing with. I would prefer to have a newer model of the same car so I could have those fancy features, but I genuinely enjoy my make and model (Kia rio). It is a perfect size for a petite person like myself, it drives very easily, and the mileage is fantastic. I pay far less than anyone else I know when I have to fill up my tank. The only reason I didn't rate it 5/5 is just the fact that it is a 10+ year old car and therefore does not have the bells and whistles that newer models have.
Kia warranties are good to have.
I bought the car used from a rental place so it had some mileage on it right away. Seemed to run great for the first month and then the first sensor went out that controlled the air and gas mix. This meant that when I pulled into traffic in front of a large semi with plenty of time to cross, I only chugged slowly into the street instead and would have been hit if the truck had not slowed down. 2 other sensors went out in the coming 4 months. Thank goodness for warranty.
2007 Kia Rio, pros and cons.
I change my oil every 3, 000 miles and I have had nothing but normal wear and tear maintenance issues. This car gets awesome gas mileage, 32 mpg. If I were to buy a new vehicle it would either be another Rio or a Soul. The only thing I do not like about it is, when it rains all the water goes into my trunk and the seals around the doors tend to drop making it sound like air is coming in.
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.
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.
Everything about my car love it or hate it.
Check engine comes on. And when I get gas the car wont start right away. Comfortable for road trips. Mine is just the basic but the CD player is louder than the radio which is a great feature to have in your car. I wish mine had power windows. My color is red and it's a stick shift.
I am not a big of Kias in general.
Well, the car didn't run when we bout it for $500. We have put thousands of dollars into it. Since we got it running: we have to tighten the belts every 3 months, it has overheated twice, the ac has stopped more than once, the black around the windows has come off. Not happy at all.
It is a really good car amazing in gas mileage:).
The car was given to me so I am not complaining lol. It is pretty nice and runs well. It is great for a first car. It is royal blue and has black interior. Four seats with ac and radio. It is overall a really cute and comfortable car. Oh yeah and it is also amazing on gas mileage.
10 years owning a Kia rio.
This car is good for zipping around town. The ergonomics are not the best if you are on the tall side, but okay for local driving. The small engine means it is hard to gain speed and things like the ac really drain some of the cars power. All in all not a bad car for what you pay.
