"I don't think I will ever buy a Kia again. This car has been nothing but trouble. It hasn't even reached 100,000 miles and the engine is failing. The car shakes all the time. It does not like to accelerate which is a big problem when I try to drive on the interstate. I have to constantly take it to a shop to get it fixed. Plus I hate the manual locks and windows! Overall a terrible car!"
"This vehicle has been nothing but problems, especially with it's transmission. Of the year and a half I've owned it, I've only been able to drive it for half of that time, maximum. The rest it's been in the shop, being repaired. It's an extremely cheap vehicle, not even including cruise control. I was honestly surprised it had electric windows, probably the car's best feature. If you're on a budget and looking for a car that will at least work, this isn't it. I have a used 2005 Rio, but with my experience, I'm scared to try a new one."
Pros: "Comfortable, maneuverable, and fuel efficient"
Cons: "no power windows"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7
"This is a fairly reliable car with comfortable interior and great fuel mileage. It has standard features for it's time and has the characteristic problems you'd expect with any car over 10 years old, all minor and fixable."
"I have had to replace inside door handles, replace sun visors, repair door latches, and replace the climate controls (3 times now). It has also developed a short that I can not locate that blows the fuse to the right-tail light.
Also has an issue where it will not start. Mechanic has not been able to isolate the issue because it happens at random."
