Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Rio 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Kia Rio 2017: Jerky gear change

    It needs investigation, and because it is still under warranty I would urge you take it to a Kia dealer. It could be that the fluid needs to be changed, although it shouldn’t at such low kilometres, so perhaps it’s something to do with the driveline computer.

  • Kia rio timing belt

    I favour following the maker's recommendation when it comes to maintenance. It might seem unnecessary expense when nothing wrong's, but better safe than sorry.
