Summary:

Fine tourist car

Faults:

Nothing for now, the car is new.

General Comments:

This car is not so quick - ultra bad acceleration especially at 2000 RPM. But it is very spacious, has acceptable quality, is easy to drive, and has a quiet engine. Baggage capacity is big enough for 4 persons. Fuel economy could be a better. My RIO SEDAN is red metallic and it is beautiful midrange car. Price for this car is OK, the best quality performance ratio, but for service you must pay the same as more expensive cars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

KIA is broken down at 6 month, about 4500km. Doesn't operate when the engine is cold and fuel up from 7 to 8.5L/100km.

Is this car a standard or automatic? I am guessing an automatic. Did Kia fix your car without any problems, or did you have to jump through hoops to get them to honor their warranty program?

My KIA is a standard, and KIA service did not fix that problem.
