Look and Style The only good thing, which traps customer to a danger car Comfort Seats are not comfortable and low quality Pickup Bad at hills and offroad, not a SUV type Mileage Not great Best Features. Needs to improve Need to Improve on almost everything, Engine which most of the customer had to replace engines, the company has imported all the parts from China which are of inferior quality. The Brakes and other important parts fails to work all of sudden even with regular service at authorised service station. The Car has a bad gear system which stucks in the 2nd gear, company failed to overcome the defect. Vibration is too much for an so called SUV, at times the music in the car cannot be heard. Overall Experience Very bad,

    It looks dashing. The size of the car is suitable as per my parking area and narrow roads in Sikkim. I just want to know the nearest dealer for me.

    I do agree and suffering from the problems caused by the Premier Rio. The 2nd gear get stuck and after run for 60 -70 KM if you shut the engine then very hard to restart it. There is no service centre in Kolkata and nearby areas. Very difficult to get the parts from the market, only have to stick with Pune to get the parts through courier.

    The car is very good. Premier has tied up with many service people. Till date (June 2014) the CRDI version is working well.Buy and use this car. Don't by wrong notions /campaigning .

    There seems to be quite some negative comments that sprang from customers' experience of RIO. One can help but wonder if it is wise to buy a car with no proper service facilities and difficult access to spare parts ?
