Kias failed attempt of a hot hatch?

Sucked in by this car by its great looks and great features, I should really have tested it further before I bought one. At 2000 KMs, I had a warning light come on. After a 6 week process through kia servicing, (who were a nightmare to deal with) I finally got it fixed.

Sluggish transmission, over revving issues, not changing gear when it should, kicking, and slow acceleration, this car isn't exciting. As expected with a 1.0L, 3 Cylinder engine. The standard picanto drives better.

It slammed to a stop in a car park with no one in front of me, jolting me forward.

Would not recommend kia to anyone. I always had my doubts regarding a kia. Wish I never bought it. Show details

Don’t buy this car

The car was running fine for the first 2 months. This was purchased new in October 2020. The engine overheats when air con is on. Apple car play always cuts out. It’s been towed to Kia twice in a month. Now the car over revs on take off before it hits its gear and also will not reverse. Got towed to Kia again, been there for 3 days without resolution so far. I will never buy a Kia again. As a contractor I am losing income everyday I’m not on the road and this will eventually cost me more than what the car is worth. I will be exercising my rights for a full refund or a brand new car. Unacceptable for a new vehicle.  Show details

Compact cute car!

I bought this as my first new car. It drives well and I can park it in the tightest spots! The only issue is that the windscreen wipers don’t cover the whole screen! Show details

Twice now, the 2022 Kia Rio GT Line has sounded like someone shaking a bucket of bolts under the bonnet. Was shut down immediatley, and ran normally when started again.
Also a throbbing noise that sounds like a ball bearing noise from the front drivers side.
Anyone else have these problems? Has done 6000k
TIA
