The 2001 manual Rio is about 2250lbs and the auto is a smidge under 2300lbs. My Kia Soul is about 2895 lbs. if I am not mistaken.

The sticker on the rocker for my 02 4 door manufactured 11/30/01 lists GVWR 3250 lbs 1691 FRT/ 1559 RR if that means anything. Reguard's Ronjohn

That makes sense....GVWR is weight of car AND payload, or gross weight. So 3250 minus 2300 means about a 950 lb max payload.....
Sorry the 2700 lb note was my Soul, not the RIO. Rio is 2300 lbs or about as much as your engine and tranny on the truck. :)

I sold my Rio at about 147K. (if memory serves me right). I still am haunted by the fact that I fixed all its issues and got it running fine, then sold it (cuz wife hated it) and might still be enjoying no car payment and economy.... Wonder if I could've got to 250K? Oh well. I do Love my Soul. I do plan on getting 200K out of it. Just don't like car payments much.

Amen on no car payments kevster I don't like them either I rather put a couple buck's into the car then be tied to payments also. Fix as you go as i say. My car will keep going till it rust's to bad on the frame then it will be time for a new little kia again. keep that in mind w5kaw and make sure you do the timming belt maintenance it's that important.
