2002 Kia Rio Cinco from North America
Definitely not for people who like driving fast
So far, nothing has gone wrong with it. It starts to shake slightly around 70 mph, but it gets up to 80 and 85 mph without shaking even more. It's 98 horsepower, so that's understandable.
Basically, the Kia dealer didn't know much about the car. The salesman claimed it was under original factory warranty, but the lady who explained the contract said it wasn't. She didn't explain the contract very well. Also, the salesman lied to us saying he reduced the price of the car, but all he did was take off some "life insurance" that was thrown in the price of the car. If/when this car breaks down and there's no warranty as promised, there's going to be heck to pay. It has nice headroom, and is a nice little family car for my wife, but overall, the service of the dealership was unacceptable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I would have kept the Geo Metro you had before they are much better cars than that Kia's, I'm sure you could have found a 2001 Metro with low miles for a great deal and that would have lasted many years you wouldn't even have needed a warranty.

Um...if you bought the vehicle used then it is no longer under warranty. The original owner can only use the warranty. If the car is sold then the 100,000 miles 10 year warranty is terminated. You may want to have a little sit-down with the dealer…good luck.
