Reliable, but not my Forever Car

I like my vehicle, but I wish it had more trunk space and space in the back seat. It runs as can be expected but it takes a while for the car to cool down or heat up when in extreme weather. Does not fair well in very poor conditions. I feel that it is a reliable car and am not worried about it on the day to day. My car has very limited features, but I chose it that way. I would prefer a car with a rear view camera, but for now this is okay. Definitely not my forever car, looking for more safety features and more space.

Rio the cars that is small in size but can run with the 4x4�s

Great on gas 40mpg($19 to fill up), easy to change oil yourself, comfortable, has plenty of space in both front and rear seats and also the trunk is very spacious. Can haul three full golf club bags. Low cost of insurance and looks pretty cool. Cons - road noise is a little loud. Once I hit a deer and it was pretty hard to get the damaged parts off and even harder to install new ones

Handles well on road and roomier than it looks.

The Kia handles well and has good gas mileage. The gas tank is small and I have to fill up more often than I would like. It can be a tight fit when transporting more than one person. There is not much leg room in the back seat. There is a decent amount of room in the trunk. The lights on the car are not automatic which would be nice. However the lights do go out if you turn the car off.

Just a small car for someone who doesn't need a real car.

I needed a car because my current car at the time was not running well and Kia put me in a corner and tried to get one over on me and used my need against me. I wish for what I paid I could have gotten something better and more eco friendly. Something that could haul more and move larger items. It is a cute car, but it doesn't fit my life.

2017 Kia Rio lx: reliable.

I have had no problems so far. As far as I know, the car is extremely comfortable for such a low price point as well as reliable and powerful for a 4 cylinder. The gas mileage is listed as below average, but 27-36 mpg is outstanding to most people. It currently costs $20 to fill up the tank here in Texas where gas costs $2.30 per gallon.

- Mason H

I do not recommend this car to anyone

It is really too small and not good on gas at all. It also seems to have not much power when you push the gas pedal it hesitates like it struggles to take off. There really is not much cargo space at all either. The battery had to be replaced not long after getting it. We have really had nothing but problems from that car.

Reliable Small Bubble Car

I love my car. It's very good on gas the only thing I don't like is the size and the update on technology. For a 2017 car I thought the rear view camera and updated radio system would be in the car. It is also very small. Good for just 1-3 people but if you have big family or kids this is not the right car.

Silver Kia Rio with black interior

Smooth ride, can barely feel bumps. Ice, cold air conditioning and hot heat during winter. A Lot of space in car and trunk. Breaks last a while and so far two years without changing them. Silver in color with black interior. Came with two key fobs and works perfectly. Would definitely recommend

- Faith H

It�s small but very spacious

The shift is kind of rough. It has been bumped into by a motorcycle and the bumper is hanging off. It is very comfy to drive. Smooth once the initial shift. Updated stereo to where you can hook up your phone and listen to your own music. Air is cold. Heat is hot. Lots of room for a small car.

- Lindsey C

It�s short and slick and easy to navigate in traffic.

My Kia Rio 2017 is easy to drive. It has a cool silver exterior and nice comfy interior that is roomy and comfortable for passengers, and adorable! However the battery died shortly after I bought it and it's missing a middle piece. A great car all in all. However, it's not my first pick.
