Kia Rio safety

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Jun 2016

Good to hear. We get a lot of complaints about various cars, many about the new types of automatic transmissions, which seem to be the bugbear of today's owners. While we focus on things like the dual-clutch automatics we forget about the really great advances that have been made in car technology. There's no better example of that advancement than the safety of the cars we now drive.

Best small hatch for $12k

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Feb 2016

Typically you're looking at a car around 2010 vintage for that money, so it's got a few years on it and will have done a few kays. With that in mind it's best to go for a car that's going to give you a good run for your money over a few years. Steer clear of European brands, that includes Ford as its small cars come out of Europe, and go for a solid brand with a good reputation for reliability. In my view that means a Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3, Mitsubishi Lancer, Kia Rio, Hyundai i30.

Kia break squeaking

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Jun 2012

Brakes are considered wear-and-tear items and, as such, are not covered by the warranty, but in your case it depends on the cause of the squeak. You might have a case for claiming a warranty repair, but you do need to establish what is causing the brakes to squeak first.

Kia has told us that they have had a handful of cases of new cars pulling left, but said they have all been fixed with a wheel alignment. They also told us they have no record of your complaint and would be happy to check your car. Take it to your dealer and ask them to contact Kia for help.
