Slow gear shift on the automatic transmission from reverse to drive, and vice versa.
Knock on the tin that this car is made of, no problems as of yet, but reading the review forums, I am a bit scared of the lack of warranty upholding on the part of the manufacturer.
To be frank, I have been trying to sell this car for 5 months now, and I have not had one bite yet. I am fairly priced, and I have only had auto brokers try to buy it for far below the true market value.
I replaced a '02 Hyundai Elantra with manual, with my '08 Kia Rio LX, automatic with the power package. Although a bit smaller, the Rio out performs the Hyundai ten fold.
I drive my Rio 140 miles round trip to work, and besides the uncomfortable seats, the car is not so bad.
The radio is a plus with the power package, upgraded 6 speaker with a sub woofer built in.
The car is a lot bigger inside than it appears. I am 6 foot tall and I have no problems getting in and out.
I have a lot of stuff in and out of this car, and it does not ever stop. I am on the go 24/7, and besides the recommended oil changes, spark plugs and transmission fluid services, normal wear, the car has been going strong since I drove off the lot.
The lot is another story, but we will not go there.
