2011 Kia Rio Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Rio
Don't buy a Kia. This Kia and the dealership where it was purchased have caused me so much aggravation that I will NEVER purchase Kia again.
My Kia Rio5 has NEVER gotten the gas mileage it was advertised as getting. In the first year, 3 of 4 cylinder sensors went out on it, one of them went out twice. Then the bluetooth switched itself to French and I couldn't get it to switch back to English. After 2-3 years, it switched to Spanish for a short period of time before finally reverting back to English. I 've had many problems with this car that I've never had happen in any other vehicle, such as the ignition continuing to beep after removing the key - just tap the key hole and it stops.
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.
2011 Kia Rio: have owned for 2 years & haven't had many problems.
I have only had one problem with this car in the past two years when I had to replace the starter. For me personally, the small size is perfect and still feels spacious. I do not like that it does not have a center console for storage. There are buttons to open the trunk and gas cap inside the drivers side door.
You get what you pay for. This car was cheap and in the end it may have been worth it to invest more money upfront instead of spending so much on repairs.
This vehicle hasn't been very reliable. With regular routine maintenance it has ongoing issues. The ignition coils go out every 20k-25k miles and need to be replaced. Over all it is a good car, drives well, not very powerful though but it gets you from point A to point B (most of the time).
Kia riot small family car.
The car is very simple. There's not a lot of buttons everywhere to make you feel like you are in a spaceship or something. It handles well and is a small compact car so you can easily park anywhere. And the back seat and trunk are a good spacious size. Great for people that have 1 or 2 kids.
Smart and reliable Kia Rio.
The only real problems I have had with it has been belt trouble, spark plug trouble, and pistons misfiring. All of which are very easy fixes. It is also very hard to find tires for this car even at the dealership. I hope to drive this car well after it has been paid off. Very reliable.
Sleek lines, sporty look, good acceleration.
I like the fuel efficiency and the size of the vehicle. I do not like that it does not have power windows or locks, that I have already had to replace all of the ignition coils and the starter, and that it is not very comfortable. I will not be buying another Kia.
My car is a silver Kia Rio.
The car that I drive is my first car. I got it my junior year of high school and I shared it with my twin sister. I am now in my junior year of college and it is still the car I am driving. It works pretty good still, considering the fact that we bought it used.
