Well I'm still driving it until the Optoma hybrid lands in a few weeks. I've enjoyed the RIO. In the end, it helped me with my Optoma purchase! Got a new Hybrid/convenience package and only owe a little over $11,000 on it right off the truck.

Sound like a good deal, I like the Optima. Too bad though, one less Rio owner

LOL..compared to some of those guys who owe $30,000..I find it miniscule.:D
I'll finish paying it off in a year.

This is what it will look similar too when I'm done. Different Rims same tint and color as soon as I leave the car lot.

Thanks, my Rio had good fuel economy. I traded it for other reasons. Just needed a larger vehicle really. Here's my new ride. It's dirty and I still haven't done the tint. I haven't owned it quite a week yet. Just had the wheels installed. I decided to go with a local company and different rim.

Fuel economy is execellent, must be an issue with yours or it's the way you drive it..
Something is wrong with mine.. it is not my driving habits. They are going to run some fuel consumption test at the next service or some other nonsense like that. Tank after tank it is going backwards rather than forwards on the economy.

After changing wheels..my former Rio kills the Hybrid Optima in overall fuel economy. Those low rolling resistant tires installed from the factory do make a positive difference.
I've lost about 4 or 5 miles per gallon efficiency. I'll be using stock tires whenever I travel long distance.
