"My little Kia Rio has been a pretty good car considering how I drive LOL. It is a super affordable vehicle to own and operate the gas mileage is great I average 35-37 in mix driving, while I get 40 mpg on the interstate. I will say, the motor is probably the cheapest, besides the interior. I have replaced all ignition coils and did several tune-ups to maintain it, and I'm very religious on oil changes LOL. If you are looking for an affordable small car don't be afraid to buy a Kia - they have improved. I drive 450-500 miles a week without any problem! :)"
