I'm not a tech, but I do read a lot of car reviews and specs, just to keep up with things.
I know that Hyundai and Kia have great warranties and maybe the cars are reliable now, but for the time being, from what I have read they get poor gas
mileage compared to the size of their engines and that this is true because they use heavy materials and old technology to build their cars.
I think the Koreans will make competitive cars in five year or so, but for the time being they are dinosaurs in tuxedos.
So, if you're happy with a V6 engine that puts out less horsepower than my I4 iVTEC and gets way less gas mileage, then go ahead.
It's your money.
I know the Rio probably doesn't come with a six, but I'm speaking in generalities.
