Sounds like DFCO - deceleration fuel cut-off. The ECU turns off the fuel injectors and uses the engine as a compression brake to help you slow down and burn less gas.

Try this for me - when you go to coast, bump it into neutral - does the feeling stay or does it disappear?


alright, i did it and said feeling totally disappears when i move it into neutral.

That is a hell of a deal. I would love to find a deal like that for my daughter's first car which I will be buying by the end of fall.

Kias have the same warranties as Hyundais: the 5-year, 60,000 mile warranty applies to all owners; the 10-year, 100k powertrain warranty ended when the original owner sold the car.

That's a great deal though. I paid almost that much for a '98 Mercury Tracer for my son to drive. When I bought the Elantra I looked hard at the Kia Rio, and really liked it, but didn't want to wait the extra few months for the hatchback, so I went with the Elantra.

That's DFCO then. It's supposed to do that. If you're coming up to a stop light/sign, leave it in gear to save the gas. If you want to just coast free for a while; for instance a very gentle downhill that you don't need to give it gas to hold speed on, bump to neutral and you'll roll easy without slowing down too fast from engine braking induced by DFCO.

the Kia ran out of gas on saturday, very near a gas station, but the light never turned on.
my GF told me that she's never seen it before.

the statement... "the Kia doesn't have a gas light" makes zero sense to me.

any ideas?

the light came on AFTER you ran out of gas? Sounds like a problem there. You should have a reserve of at least 25 to 50 KM after the light comes on.

i installed a new/used stereo in the kia last night:















that last picture was right before i push the dash fascia into the dash.
- i didn't take a "final" after picture but it sounds great!

removing that dash section on the Rio 5 is way easier than removing the XD's dash.
its just that little section and there aren't any screws to remove/lose.

Is there a noticeable improvement over the stock radio? What about the speakers?
