2001 Kia Rio from North America
The greatest value car out there
Nothing has gone wrong except a mysterious fluid leaked out of the car. We checked all the fluid levels and they were fine, which confused us, but it has not happened since, and all the fluid levels have not worsened.
People make fun of the KIA until they hear that mine gets 38 miles to the gallon.
The perfect car for commuting to work, and has surprising comfort for the driver and the person riding shotgun; personally those seats are very comfortable, while those in the back pray for more room.
It is so light that if people are getting too rowdy they will actually unsteady the car in a turn. With a full car, be careful over speed bumps because the suspension doesn't handle weight to well.
No ABS or power locks in mine, no anything, just bare bones affordable.
I always shout turning radius when I park it because it is so small and easy to park.
All in all, I love the KIA for the economy it provides, and how much abuse it was able to take in the ice storms this winter.
Drive your KIAs with care as you put all 96 horses in action, and turn off the AC to pass people.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
