2010 Kia rio is great for people who do not take the best care of their cars.

It has been very reliable and very low maintenance. I bought it used. It was 4 years old and had 60, 000 miles on it. I am bad about getting routine maintenance done on my vehicle. The car was not well taken care of, it still had the original brakes and spark plugs from the factory after six years, and I never had a problem with it. I only recently had them changed as part of routine maintenance. The only thing that ever goes bsd is the coil packs. This is a cheap and easy fix every 4 or 5 years or so. It goes pretty good in all types of weather too. It's been an excellent vehicle.

2010 Kia riot- great first car.

My Rio gets decent gas mileage and I love the eco feature. I wish it had power windows and a key fob, but it does not, but it is a basic car. I use my auxiliary plug in all the time to listen to music on my way to work, and it has a USB plug as well to charge my phone. The major problems I have faced with it have been the coils in my engine needing to be replaced because they all went out at different times. That kind of maintenance was very expensive.

This car is great on gas mileage. Not really an expensive car to fill up.

Not for people who have large families, looking for space, or a high performance vehicle. Perfect for couples or singles. Great for getting where you need to be. Even if your looking to make a small road trip, great on gas. The car is a base model so don't expect power locks and windows. But has USB and AUX ports for music. You can also purchase a subscription to satellite radio.
