bring it in, have it scanned!! we have scanners we've used on Rio(s) b4. Only true diagnostic solution and the best way of avoiding unwanted and UNNECESSARY trouble. These cars are kinda tickle-ish and actually help you dig yourself into deeper sheit if you're not sure what's wrong and especially seeing that there are mechanics like to apply Nissan GA15 solution to every Korean irritation, best not take any chances.

a "buck" like a "miss" perhaps?

ignition coil? spark plug wires?

I hate when the firm does crap like that...

When I had my Rio Southern Sales never ever had any parts to fix it.
Saving what little they have for their rental fleet.
