Standard cars are fun to drive.

My car is a standard transmission. I think those are the best cars to drive. If I can help it I would only buy a standard transmission car because they are better on gas and better to drive in the snow and wet roads. I do think my car is a bit small for my needs though. I cannot fit my scooter in it that I use to get around so I have to use my walker or cane instead. :(.

This is my transportation for me and my fiancé to get to work and back home.

It is a great car. It runs very well, has great gas mileage and it is a very comfortable ride. The car has a little weird sound when starting but it starts. It drives smoothly and makes car rides a lot better. It has a hook up for USB and aux cord. It is small but gets you where you need and only needs about $25 worth of gas to get a full tank.

Kia Rio is a bad car. Do not purchase.

I have had a log of issues with this car. For starters, I've always had an issue with the suspension, constantly have to get an alignment done. I have had to replace the coil packs more than I think a person should with a car. And the belts are always in need of adjusting because the car does not automatically adjust the belts.
