I'm really thing about getting a Kia Rio for this reason and , since a good Geo Metro is getting next to impossible to find . The Chevy replacement called the Aveo hasn't sparled my interest .

I would consider a 07 Hyundai Accent, but a Kia Rio is a better value. Aveo is the lowest priced car sold in America today.
Frankly, you can't go wrong with buying any 2007 car.
I have 114,000 miles on my 2K Accent.

I know this is a Hyundai website, and you asked about an econobox. And I agree that the Kia Rio may be the best value going there.
But for little more money, you can get one of the leftover '07 Kia Spectras. The Spectra is a much more comfortable and substantive car. And although it costs a little more, it is still one of the best values out there. And at the end of the season, you should be able to get one for about the cost of a Rio. And you will be much happier with it.
Same for any leftover '07 Hyundai Elantras. But with the '08 Elantra already having made a big and good introduction, I think they will be harder to find.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the input, Edmonds has a good website where you can punch in and compare various models, will have a look at the Kia Spectra.

Yes, and this is really a shame. Diesels are a much better choice, what with their durability, economy, and the possibility of running them on used fryer oil. That, is the ultimate in economy!

You mean those mid'70s GM 350 Diesels were the best around? :)

Mid '70s Olds diesels were converted gas engines, not true diesels from the start. That's why they failed so miserably. A better example might be the five cylinder diesels that were put into 300 Series Benz's. Those were tanks. The 1.9 TDI that VW is using is no slouch either. A six cylinder, 2.3 liter version of that engine came to the US in the mid Eighties, in Volvo 760s. I know a guy who is running a pair of Passats and getting 45-50MPG out of them. They each have over 250,000 miles on there clocks. I believe that one of them is closing in on 400K. Can you say that about your gas engine?

Yeah, and when you had the expertise of the Detroit Diesel people just down the hall, it didn't make sense that Oldsmobiles diesel was such an abysmal failure - until you see what was already happening in the domestic auto industry at that time.

I would recommend that you look for a clean used VW or Mercedes diesel. They are both built like tanks, their engines will run forever if properly maintained, and you have the option of running them on used fryer oil if you are at all adventurous.
