I have a Kia Rio right now and I tell you it secretly wishes it was a boat. It hydroplanes very readily in the rain. Additionally, it blows all over in the wind. Given that the Rio is slightly larger (and likely heavier), I am worried that I may encounter the same issues. Has anyone driven it in torrential downpours this summer? I'd hate to wait a year for my smart to have it slide off the road and into the ditch on a rainy day.
