2001 Kia Rio from North America
Decent car, good gas mileage, but no comfort!
It shimmers when you drive down the road, but when I took it in the dealer found nothing wrong with it. I just got use to it.
Seats are about as comfortable as sitting on broken glass.
Engine light seems to always come on. Spark plugs burned up quick, changed them and still runs like crap. Went to change wires, but soon found out you can only buy plug wires from the dealership. So instead of $25 - $30 bucks, I am looking at a whopping $70.00!!
Guess I got what I paid for. Well that and they were the only ones that would finance me. Course the bad thing is, that cheap $9,000 car, will end up costing me around 17,000 due to their finance company and add-ons. UHG!!
The one good thing I can say about the car is I can drop $10 bucks into the tank and drive 275-300 miles. Bet your SUV can't do that. I can say that the car always starts and runs for me, even if its only running on 3 cylinders! Plus I just had to buy new tires and I live on a farm with gravel roads. That's a lot of mileage on those cheap tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
