James Davis Posted: 10/25/2011 1:35pm PDT That's all fine and dandy, but we are still chained to the gas pump. I going to hold out for an all electric. I'm hoping for the BMW i3 or i8...if they'll take a trade in. daneal2 Posted: 5/6/2012 1:30pm PDT In the first 5 months of ownership I have come to enjoy the driving experience with my RIO5. The steering is quite light w/o feel. If you use the throttle generously it is great fun squirting around lumbering MBs. The six speed automatic is fine. It downshifts noticeably when slowing. There is a manual option. Gas mileage? I have saved the receipts but not computed mileage. Not that interested actually.
