2003 Kia Rio 4D, America’s new best buy


Are you broke or getting there in your own sweet time? Yes? Well don’t shake the baby, buy a Kia. 

That’s right, a 2003 Kia Rio 4D sedan is the new car for the working class gentleman whose social standing is seeing a definite gain in prestige. According to Kelly Blue Book’s latest suggested retail values, the newest and cheapest used automobile you can buy from a dealership or private party is now the 2003 Kia Rio 4D Sedan for the ultra-low price of $4,785. 

Imagine yourself motoring about in spry “excellent” condition Kia with 72,000 miles and a peppy 1.6 Liter 4-Cyl mated to a 5 Speed manual. Wrap your grabber around the gearshift, dump the clutch and listen to the front tires chirp as you’re thrown back in your seat for a moment of pure exhilaration.

Dual front air bags provide the comfort of knowing you wont be slammed against the steering wheel in the unlikely event of a crash while standard power steering promotes all around drivability in keeping with modern automobiles. 

The stereo operates in both AM and FM modes, connecting you to music, talk, and an endless repetition of advertisements that are sure to inspire the hope of possible purchases in the years to come. And yet there’s no need to purchase insurance; the 2003 Kia Rio 4D sedan received 3.5 out of 5 stars based on 146 reviews according to the good folks at Kelly Blue Book online, that’s nearly 4 stars, on the Internet. 

Don’t hesitate to act today! Without buyers, this buyer’s car market could pass you by.
