Purchased As New
Needed a commuter and I loath Toyota... rented a Prius once and I just dont understand how ppl like that car so much... its a nerd's shoe.... so I tested the 2012 Accent and liked it a lot, but didn't pull the trigger on buying it because it was the first car I looked at... I tested the Fiesta next, had better overall feel as far as handling and interior but the auto-tranny in the Ford left a lot to be desired, ruling it out... next I ended up at Kia and tested the Rio, it felt almost exactly like the Hyundai which makes sense since they use the same power trains... it wasn't quite as nice on the interior feel but still really nice and it was the price difference of about $2k for essentially the same car (Accent vs. Rio) that had me sold and away I drove in the new Kia Rio... the new style of Kia is getting better and better, Hyundai too with their new styles but I think if the new styles were given a 'gender bias' I would make Kia for guys and Hyundai for gals.... I've got almost 500mi on the Kia, I do 100mi/day, it is avg over 38mpg and I'm very happy with the decision, even though its kind of early.
