This car is great for those who are new to car buying or those who don't have a lot of money for a car. When I bought this car, I was just looking for a car. Although my desire was a different brand that I much preferred but could not afford at that time. I went in to this purchase with both positive and negative feelings -- I'm getting a car, but it's not the one I want. After some time driving, I have changed the way I think about this brand. It is surprisingly a very reliable car. It also gets good gas mileage, probably because it's a lighter car, but with the way gas prices were fluctuating and often getting higher than necessary, saving on gas is exceptional. I have never had a problem with this car with exception of one recall that I wasn't even aware of, nor did I even have... (more)
Story
I've moved a lot and one place that I used to live was in Maine. I moved to Maine in that car, and all went well. But the most memorable was right after I moved, because it was Memorial Day weekend, and no one would be around to look at applications. I decided to take the dogs to Acadia National Park that was about an hour away. It was a cloudy day, so already I was very happy as I love to ... (more)
Pros
Reliable - no break downs or issues. It gets good gas mileage, comparable to another brand that I used to own that had a larger tank. It's smaller and easier to get in to spaces that I could not previously. It's easy to clean the snow off of the top because I can actually reach the top of the car. It has more room than one might think. I moved across the country in this car and was surprised at how much I could fit into the trunk and back seat. It looks small, but there's a lot of space.
Cons
It's light - which admittedly makes me worry if I get into an accident, I will I have the same level of protection as I did in a heavier car. I do not like the bubble look, as I call it. While I understand that makes a car more efficient, I prefer the square, boxy look of cars of the past. It's plain Jane nothing fancy - no GPS, no moon roof, no Bluetooth, etc.

I got the 2004 Kia Rio sedan new with a manual transmission and none of the upgrades. This meant manual steering and no AC, but I never use AC because where I live is a reasonable temperature and there are advantages to manual steering like improved high speed handling, slightly better fuel economy and less maintenance. I installed my own sound system, which made more sense to me because I knew what I wanted and am a mechanic so I could easily install it. Even without the head unit, the car still came with all the speakers in the doors and the wiring harness, so the radio/CD player was plug and play. I never missed the AC, though when parallel parking the manual steering could become a pain. While I still maintain that it's worth the trade off if the only options are manual or power, I... (more)
Story
I use this vehicle for to and from work and any time I have to go a long distance because of the fantastic gas mileage. I can't say that it is a fun story, but it is certainly memorable when your transportation costs are cut nearly in half and you have that extra money to spend on other things. With such excellent cost savings this car has allowed me to purchase other things that I enjoy the e... (more)
Pros
This vehicle is not expensive to buy and gets excellent gas mileage, so it is a fantastic value for the money. Maintenance is low cost as it uses all conventional fluids and I haven't had any major issues, so the only additional out of pocket costs have been routine maintenance and wear items such as brakes. In addition to the great value, the cargo room is surprisingly ample for a subcompact sedan and when equipped with a manual transmission power and acceleration are better than expected as well.
Cons
This vehicle is not the pinnacle of style. The interior and body are very plain and the interior is very cheaply made, so a lot of small plastic items like the dome light and the heater blower switch broke easily. This doesn't bother me very much because I just look to a vehicle to get me from point to point, but for someone that prefers creature comforts and likes to give their vehicle a personal flair, this isn't the best choice. It also is not a great car for poor weather driving, particularly with the stock tires. After buying some better tires, I was able to get decent rain handling, ... (more)
