Cons: "none, really"

"Sadly, my little Kia Rio 5 with 117,000 just got totaled while being driven by a family member (no one hurt). I will really miss it. The car was dependable, sturdy, and got great gas mileage. I got the one with no bells and whistles, and the only thing I wish I had gotten were electric door locking because of my short arms. It was peppy enough, handled well, and reliable. I think it would have made it to 200,000 miles. I think I'm getting another one. It's not a car my tech-loving engineer sister would love, but it was perfect for me."
