2008 Kia Rio Review

Owned 5 speed manual overdrive transmission. Great car but only bad thing is the clutch/manual transmission goes out early. Very expensive to fix - $1K.

An Excellent Vehicle For Getting Around Town Or Going On A Trip Is Even Better. — I have saved over a zillion dollars on gasoline using this vehicle. I average 36 miles per gallon around town and recently, as well as when I first purchased it, I get an average of 42 mile per gallon right now. That is going a speed of approx. 68 mph. Getting up around 73 mpg, you lose some gas mileage. It is the vehicle to drive for gas savings. The trunk is large enough for plenty of luggage if you don't have three kids or more. I have used it to transport two folding bicycles and they fit very good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The gas mileage is the best around.  For the year it was made, it can't be beat.  Just an all around good dependable vehicle with no problems at all.

Cons: The back seats are a bit small for larger people.

Dont Ever Get In A Rollover Accident In A Kia Rio — I liked the way it looked and the monthly payments were good..Drove it 6000kms from Nova Scotia to Alberta and it was pretty comfortable..The overall price wasnt as good as I thought it would be and the resale value isnt the best but the worst thing about the Kia Rio is pray that you dont get side swipped while turning on a green light and rolling your car a few times because when I did it I almost died and the worst part is none of the airbags went off!!and they say 5star safety rating no wayyy...Even tho it has airbags in the 4 doors,wheel and dash..none went off until the tow truck flipped it back on its wheels....total write off:/

Pros: Monthly price,Gas,Interior,style

Cons: Airbags,Cost of parts,no rental car when you get in accident or if you car is gettin fixed
