I live in Houston, Texas. I am interested in a 2008 Kia Rio5 LX too. You got a great deal. How did you get the deal? Did you buy it from Cowboy KIA's internet department? Did you see the deal from the advertisement? Did you need to negotiate the price? Thanks.

Bought my Rio in Jan 08'. Paid 8990.00, and got 1k loyalty cash. I bought the base car, and it has nothing, nothing but good gas mileage. I was sketical at first because it didn't get but 32 mpg. That changed over the past five months. Now it is getting great mileage.
#11 of 21 2009 KIA RIO pricing
Jun 14, 2010 (11:00 am)
I just got a new 2009, even though its June of 2010.
The window had a decent rebate to 13400....automatic, ABS and spolier...SX
When I went to get the 0% loan for 60months, they swapped and said I didn't qualify.
So they offered me 1.9%.
Then when I asked why the price went up, they said it was "either" the interest or the rebate.
Then I had to discuss the rebate cash offered on the KIA website, and the salesman acted as if he wasn't aware of that....gee whiz,,,,he sells KIA's everyday, and didn't know that. huh?
I then didn't hit the monthly payment I wanted and tossed down $1,000 more.
I was also a bit concerned about how they made the famous Warranty sound not so good. As if it was a maze of requirements to satisfy the Warranty....OR ELSE!
or else the Warranty is VOID!
the scare tactic or is it real? I don't know. I added extended KIA warranty to have $0 deductible and go the 10yr...though after reading the Kia Warranty manual I am not sure this was a good deal or not.
After all the smoke and mirrors...
I walked off paying $288 a month at 1.9% for 60 months. $1,000 down.
Its a 2009 SX with ABS, brand new.
It wasn't a really fun experience. Its been 10yrs since I bought a car and the shell-scam game seems to still be in full force.
#12 of 21 Used 07 Kia Rio
Oct 23, 2010 (10:30 am)
I'm a college student looking at cars, and I found a used Kia Rio the other day. It's a 2007 model with 64k miles on it, and they were asking for $6,000 for it. It comes with only a 60-day warranty from the dealer, but there's an optional extended warranty that will cover it to 100k miles.
Does this sound like a good deal? And can anyone give me a rough estimate as to how much the extended warranty will cost?

I would think you could get it for a bit less. A warranty should cost between $700-1100, depending on the deductible and what's covered.

Could use some assistance if anyone has it.... Really enjoyed driving the rio over most competitors to be honest... just dont want to show all my cards at the dealership for a new ride. So I'm looking at the EX ($16,500.) with a few options.... including the Convenience Package $1k. I've been quoated $18,580.... Haven't read too many new price quoates / leasing feedback or conversation so I thought I'd throw it out there.

Actually, this thread has about 16 posts since 2006. So not much traffic. The hyundai elantra is car of the year, a bigger vehicle and similarly equipped to the rio may be slightly less. leases may be comparable if similar terms.
