2002 Kia Rio RX-V 4 cylinder from North America
A great purchase
As we pulled out of the dealership parking lot with our new car, the driver's armrest fell off. Less than two weeks later KIA fixed this. Before this was fixed, we had a few other problems looked at.
There was a crack in the windshield.
There were a few scratches in the paint.
The door handle was loose.
The hood was buckled and looked uneven.
There were a few other problems, but KIA fixed them all on the warranty.
There is no CD player unless you get the RX-V Sport model, which I find a little strange seeing as this car was made in 2002 and the majority of the population uses only CD's.
In the front legroom is OK, you can adjust the seats a number of ways, but in the back leg room was hard to come by. it was allright for a short trip to the mall, but I couldnt see a whole road trip in the back working out comfortably, that is unless you put your legs up. But I have long legs so this problem might not bother some people.
The stereo system wasn't cheap! It's a very good quality Sony. I saw it in an advertisement and for just that stereo its about 500 dollars Canadian.
The seats are easily folded down for extra cargo room and with little effort can be put back up for passengers.
The price was reasonable considering how new it is and with the 5 year bumper to bumper warranty you can't go wrong. Overall I would give this car an 85% satisfactory rating.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
