I bought a 2002 Kia Rio last year as my first car.
Ever since I got it, I have had nothing but problems with it. Most recently, sometimes I go to start it and it doesn't want to go, it will either take a few goes to get started and then it's still very shaky feeling, as if it wants to stall (even though it's an auto).
In the last week, when I take my foot off the accelerator, and the car jolts back, and now when I brake, the car cuts out all together! I have taken it to several mechanics. None can figure out the problem, and have taken it to Kia, they deny it's a common problem (which is crap!) and they wanted me to give them $100 JUST to look at it!!
I should not have to spend a cent on a car that wasn't made properly! It's unsafe and I will NEVER buy Kia again!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
