When I first purchased my Kia I didn't expect much because it is a very cheap car. However, it came with a 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty so I wasn't too worried. Over all I haven't experienced any really horrible problems with the vehicle and it is still functional even after I have driven it over 150,000 miles. There are a few parts that I have had to replace more than once, and the CD tends to malfunction when it gets very warm outside.
Story
I live near the southern Appalachian mountains, I have had many great times driving my car along scenic highways such as the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smokey Mountains Park.
Pros
The first pro is that this car is great on gas. Even though it is already eight years old with a lot of miles on it, I still get about 30 miles to each gallon of gas. Secondly, I haven't had to make any major repairs yet. I expected it to start breaking down frequently once it was past the limitations of it's warranty and it has not. Also, for how cheap it was, it came with power windows, A/C, radio/CD player, and an automatic transmission, keyless entry/alarm.
Cons
I have had few problems with this car. The worst one seemed to be the ignition coils. The factory installed coils burned out one by one after I reached about 75,000 miles. I have had to replace all four of them by now. I don't know if this was due to a manufacturer defect or if that was just the normal time span for the coils to last. The other two things are that the CD player tends to malfunction and read error when the temperature is very hot outside and I have had to replace the passenger side airbag sensor twice. The first time the airbag sensor was covered under warranty, the second ... (more)

For the last five years, I have driven a 2009 Kia Rio. Although Kia may not be known about quality like Honda and Toyota are, they do have their warranty that assures owners that unexpected repairs are taken care of, as long as scheduled maintenance is followed. I bought my 2009 Rio brand new while I was still in college, initially wanting to get the Forte Koup, but they weren't available yet, and I couldn't (at the time) afford the payments on the 4-door Forte, so I went with the Rio. I'm hear to tell you how pleasantly surprised I've been with my car.
Story
In five years, I don't really have a favorite story about this car that stands out.
Pros
Fuel economy is awesome in the Rio. Last year, I drove from north of Pittsburgh to Middle Tennessee, only spending $60 in gas on the trip down, and about $70 on the way back. The excellent fuel economy doesn't sacrifice performance: the Rio does pretty well on the highway for a car only equipped with a 1.6 liter four. For a car its size, it is also pleasantly roomy, and can carry quite a bit of luggage. Although classified as a subcompact, the Rio could easily slide up into compact territory where the Forte is occupied, especially in comparison to true subcompacts like the Fiat 500, Chevr... (more)
Cons
In the last five years, maintenance has held up pretty well, although wiring with the radio at some point must've shorted out. As the warranty for the radio (at 3 years/36,000 miles) had expired at that point, I have yet to get it fixed. Personally, I find the radio to be the last thing I worry about with a car, and I had been playing music off my phone via the auxiliary jack anyways before the radio quit, so now I just play music off the phone's speakers. Another con, though minor, is that there is no indicator of fuel economy in the dash. Having used such a feature in other cars, it's a... (more)

I was very happy to come across the Kia Rio LX when I did. The car itself is a great little car, perfect for 1 or 2 people (but probably not a family) and it is priced very competitively. For an entry level vehicle, I left the dealership feeling extremely satisfied and never once regretted my purchase.
Story
I was terrified of every little scratch and I wanted to keep my new car in as good as shape as possible. However, my garage is tiny. I spend the day before I got the car cleaning, reorganizing, and moving things to make the most room. I had no idea how tiny the car actually was---it slid in perfectly fine and I have even more room than I had before!
Pros
The Kia Rio drives like a dream. Smooth, quiet, efficient. The MPG so far has been excellent. While I have not had ample time to test it, it does include a ECO mode which is supposed to help boost gas mileage by lowering the performance of the vehicle. The warranty offered by Kia is one of the best in the business, which is one of the main reasons I decided to go new and with Kia.
Cons
The car itself is small. When the front seats are fully back, like they are for me since I am so tall, there are very few people who would fit in the seat behind me. Couple that with two full grown adults in the front seat, and no one is going to be fitting in the back. No cruise control is a huge negative and something I didn't think I needed to worry about, but unfortunately I didn't notice it in time and am now stuck without it. Headlights are also manual and require turning them on and off. On a side note, if you leave the lights on the car WILL turn them off.
