I personally like the ecosystem. . It helps to save gas.

I have had my Kia Rio for over a year now and I really love the car. It is really good on gas and has great features. It has Sirius satellite radio which gave me a free month when I 1st purchased the car. It is a 4 door sedan for easy access. It also has an ecosystem which is helpful for saving gas when going on long distances. . . Like riding the interstate for awhile or going on a long trip. It has also a very spacious trunk as well. I feel like the gas cap has to be fully on and twisted right. . . If it is not it might trigger the check engine light, but so far the car is great.

2013 Kia Rio. 5 year 60,000 mile warranty.

This car is very economical. It gets good gas mileage on the highway and in town. It is sporty looking too. Kia offered a better warranty than most car dealers so that was one of the selling points. The only thing I do not like about this car is that it sits kind of low and sometimes is hard to get out of. I have a small pillow on the seat so I sit a little higher and I like that. It does have a back up screen in the car so you can see if anyone is behind you when you back out of a parking space so that is a plus. So far it has been a very reliable car and is almost 6 years old.

The best detail about my car is the Bluetooth radio.

My car is reliable, it does get me from point A to point B, however it does have some performance issues. The gas gauge is off by 60 miles or so. My car is fairly comfortable, however the steering wheel is falling apart. My car has 4 doors, a sunroof, no spare tire, large trunk space, touch screen Bluetooth radio and power windows. There are some electrical issues with my sunroof. however I would say the best feature in my car is the Bluetooth touchscreen radio.
