The car that just won't die. You try and try over again but she just won't die.

2008 Kia Rio SX

If you want a vehicle that's going to last, then this is the vehicle you need. Seriously! It will not die. I have been waiting for it to die just so I can get a new car... but it just won't die! Why won't it know it's place and just die already!! But really, no major repairs or issues other than the normal wear and tear. The tires are a little expense for the cost of the vehicle but not really a big deal I guess. Just replaced the clutch for the first time and it's over 10 years old. It has some 02 sensor issues down the road but nothing outrageous. Overall a decent cheap reliable car.

My Kia Rio is a great car.

My Kia is a great car I have had no problems. My other cars had issues with handles, knobs & buttons falling off, lol,not one yet on my Kia, I love it & would recommend Kia to everyone.The car is good on fuel & most of them are small to mid sized & it is a great car to own and drive.
