2004 Kia Rio RX V from North America
I love my car!
Replaced the rear bearings.
Clutch is slipping, probably needs to be replaced.
Other than that, only regular maintenance (including replacing the timing belt).
My Kia Rio RX V has been super reliable.
The manual transmission is great for this size of car.
It's very inexpensive to operate, and is very good on gas.
I love the space in the back - big enough for my needs - fits my bike, loads of branches for the dump, small boxes while moving, etc.
The only negative is that the passenger seats do not have a lot of room. The folks in the front seat have to move their seats forward, so the folks in the back seat have enough room for their legs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
