Needs to be very patient
The driver's power window jammed after 3 months (??!!!) and central locking mechanism (tailgate) gave way after 6 months.
Generally, Rio is a very handsome car. I have the 5-door version (Cinco in US) with the 1.3 auto transmission. The car felt quite well screwed, but the lack of low-end pull is REALLY disappointing. Rear legroom is also very compromised if the driver were to push his seat any further to get a comfy driving position. Lastly, the brake system is one of the scariest I've tried in years! Other than the "dead" feeling (or rather the "no-feel") is seriously hampering some spirited driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
