Good, compact city cars with some pep.

2008 Kia Rio LX

Good car. Have not had any major issues with it. Has lasted for 11 years. Good car for city driving. It is a compact car so backseat can be small for larger sized people. Overall, I am satisfied with this car. It has some zip for a 4 cylinder but not good for super fast speeds... Too lightweight. But then again it is perfect for city driving and some interstate driving. It ok for long trips but like I said backseat is small if you are kind of big but fine for a child or thin adult.

Kia Rio is great dependable vehicle

2008 Kia Rio LX

Absolutely No problems out of this great car. Actually purchased two the same day. Both get great gas mileage. At almost eleven years old and around 186,000 and 110,000 miles on each vehicle we could not have asked for better vehicles. One has been given to our 16 year old as their first car. She tells us she lives the 32 miles to a gallon especially since she pays for the gas.

I proudly own a Kia Rio lx!

2008 Kia Rio LX

I bought my Kia Rio in 2008 it has been running smoothly every since! Great gas mileage, it's easy to park it's just small/large enough. I can load all of our groceries in it and grab my grandkids from school ! I love my Rio! It does really well in the rain and snow as well. I put a subwoofer in the trunk so it has everything I like.

The Kia Rio has amazing comfort to it. You can easily know your gear!

2008 Kia Rio LX

My vehicle is one of the rarest only because it is a stick shift. It performs amazing and it is reliable. If you can stick shift, this car would be amazing for you! It is so comfortable and during the winter it warms up really quick and during the summer it cools off amazingly!

good car, you must have it

2008 Kia Rio LX

good. The 2019 Kia Rio has a quiet, responsive engine, a smooth automatic transmission, and stable road manners. With all elements at play, you get a likeable little car that offers a splash of sportiness. Fuel economy is average for the class. You must have it
