Kia Rio 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Rio here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
High tyre wear on a Rio
It's likely to have Nexen tyres, which are the poorest of the Korean tyres we have tested. In that case, the wear is down to poor quality tyres. You will get nowhere with Kia as tyres are always wear-and-tear items and outside warranty.
Replacing a Cruze?
I would go for an i30. It's a former Carsguide Car of the Year and you will get a car with the remainder of the five-year warranty

You clearly don't trust the dealer, so you could contact Kia and ask them to have one of their technical representatives check the car over for you to assure you that it has been fixed. That could be difficult given that the case is now before the consumer affairs tribunal, so it's perhaps best in the circumstances that you either borrow a car or hire one until the case is settled.
