What are your thoughts on the Kia Rio?

I am thinking of buying a 2010 Kia Rio 1.4 2010 manual petrol with 35,000 mileage for £3500. I would like to know your general opinion about KIA Rio? What should I look for before buying it? Is it a fair price for such car?

They were okay. Some of the trim wasn't very nice, but the cars themselves are good looking ands reliable. The diesel was better than the petrol. See: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/kia/kia-rio-iii-20.../ and www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/kia/rio-2005/ You can probably work £500 off the price.
