Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Rondo, model year 2007-2011 Sedona, Sorento and Sportage, model year 2010-2011 Soul, model year 2008-2011 Optima, model year 2010 Forte, model year 2007-2009 Amanti, and model year 2009 Borrego vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Kia recalled 623,658 model year 2007-2010 Rondo and Sportage, model year 2007-2011 Sorento, model year 2007 Sedona, model year 2010-2011 Soul, and model year 2011 Optima vehicles. In September 2013, Kia informed the agency that it was adding an additional 356,719 vehicles to this campaign. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 980,377. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Bought cheap with 40K miles in 2012, it's hauled two kids through high school and has the scars to show for it. Overall it's been the perfect car for what we needed. I do my own maintenance and find it well designed for the DIY wrench. 25MPG on our regular commutes and low 30s on the highway...I've never actually tried to get good MPG, I'm sure 35 is attainable but I'm in a hurry. Absolutely zero issues, gas, tires, oil and brake pads. Looking forward to getting 250K out of it, so far so good.

Sweet Little Car!

This car is a great value. I have been the only owner for 6 years, 220k miles. Handles curvy roads great w/o the traction control. The traction control becomes a pain when driving curvy roads as the brake activates and locks up a wheel as your are mid turn. Other than that the acceleration is great. Has guts. Very comfortable for 4 grown adults. Have been very happy with maintenance, as good my moms Honda CRV. Really good gas mileage, I average 27-29 MPG, in the city it was up to 32 MPG! Compact size makes parking anywhere a breeze. Trunk has lots of space, even with 2- 12' Rockford's.

I bought this car new in April, 2010. I have since driven it 136,000 miles. Besides the normal maintenance & wear and tear, I have not had a serious issue with this car. Not once! It has been extremely reliable. Driven from PA to NC on multiple occasions, and daily gets over 50 miles to and from work. If you are looking for a car that is reliable and cost effective, take a look at a 2010 Kia Forte. Even if high miles, I'd think this would be a great purchase. Here's to getting to 200k and having the same review!

So many problems, so few miles

Clutch and flywheel had to be replaced at 70K miles at a cost of over $1500. No aftermarket parts widely available. Speedometer/Odometer replaced at approximately 75K miles. Entire rack and pinion steering assembly had to be replaced at 85K miles at a cost of over $1000. Tires on this care barely reach 15K miles without going bald. Brakes and rotors replaced at 85K miles. This car, while fun to drive and very good looking is expensive to maintain and not very reliable. It is my second Kia and possibly my last. I would advise against any manual transmission in this car. This is a very difficult clutch to drive, and I have driven many. When you have to replace it, get ready pay big bucks.

we bought the ccar used in 2012, since then it has been all over fl and 2 trips to ga. on the hwy i get between 36-41mpg and on the slower back country roads going 55 i get 52mpg. not a single problem with the car the only reason i gave it a 2 for comfort is the front seats are only good for about 150miles anything longer and and they let you know your in an econmy car. the car has good pick up and go too

My car has 50,000 miles, 2.0L 4 cylinder, 5 speed manual transmission. I bought it used. This car has been great. It has been my daily driver for 2 years. I needed cheap, reliable transportation and it fit the bill. Comes with great features and a great warranty. That being said, beware of this cars resale value. I have put about 10,000 miles on it in the 2 years i have owned it and it went from being worth almost $13,000 retail/$10,000 trade to about $7500 retail and $5000 trade. For those who want to buy this car to keep and drive till it dies, it is well worth it. However if you plan on trading it in after a year or two, look away. I wish i hadn't bought it just for that reason alone.

Have to hand it to Kia

The sport tuned suspension really makes this car fun to drive. It's no sports car by any means, but it is a beautiful blend of fun and practicality. There's a half inch dead spot in the throttle which makes first gear a royal pain, but it's a very simple fix for someone with a little know-how. Even with the mod, the gas pedal is REALLY light and sensitive. It takes a little getting used to. Blue tooth isn't great, but it's there. Back seats have an impressive amount of space for a coupe. Drivers seat sits high and and only raises from the back. Steering wheel controls are great, audio sounds good, interior controls have a comfortable and logical layout. Well done, Kia.

I LOVED my Forte!

I recently traded in my 2010 Kia Forte for a 2013 Nissan Sentra, but I only traded it in because it was high in miles (over 100k). Otherwise I would still be driving it. I was a little leery about buying a Kia, but I was pleasantly surprised. Mine came equipped with all kinds of toys: Bluetooth, Sirius satellite radio. Acceleration was more than ample for passing.

2010 forte ex sedan 2.0L 4 cyl automatic. overall, i'd have to say i love this car. traded my nissan titan for this in 2010, and i'm LOVING the gas mileage. now has 26k miles. the exterior and interior both look really nice, and the ride is comfortable. i drive from dallas to corpus almost every other weekend, and it handles like a boss. pick up isn't that great, but that's to be expected with a 2.0. only thing i don't like is this thing is prone to dents. i just leaned on the car and i got a dent on the drivers side door. a girl from my university also hit the passenger door with her purse and dented it, and her purse was freaking tiny lol. despite that, KIA made one nice little car :)

Great car for a great price!

My husband and I owned this car for a year, and I loved it! We put 20k miles on it with no problems, and the gas mileage was great.. We made it from San Diego to Phoenix with one tank. The body style is classy, not like the older kia's. The interior also looks extremely nice with leather, and I liked the digital radio and the way it worked with sirius. The car was also fun to drive.. It's only a 4 cyl, so it doesn't have a lot of pick up, but it handles really well. We had to trade in our car because it was difficult getting the car seat in and out of the back, but thats the only reason!

We have a 2010 FORTE EX lease car for $ 239 a month with -0- down, -0- first month payment and a $ 400 disposition fee. So our monthly cost for this car is pretty low. We have 20,000 miles on it to date. We just drive 500 miles Sunday Dec 9,2012 and we got somewhere between 32 and 35 MPG. We have Blizzack Snow tires, four adults in the car, limited luggage. We adjusted the seats to get good leg room, we are all 6 foot tall. We have the Automatic 4 speed. The car's equipment all works good. We have had no dealer service. We do oils changes and tire changes. That is all. Our dealer is a dishonest crook. ( Vision Kia of Fairport NY ). He can't change so we just pray for him and hope for best

I have had this KIA for a year and 1/2. Been in shop more than a dozen times but still have problems with it. Even worst, in the last 1 1/2 year it lost more than $15,000 in value. Payed $19,000 for it in May 2011, it is now August 2012 and the trade in value is at $4,000. The exterior and interior are in great shape. DO NOT BUY KIA you will loose big time. You and american economy.

I purchased the car in May of 2010 and have nearly 25,000 trouble-free miles on it. It has plenty of pep especially since I have added a few aftermarket parts. I get awesome gas mileage, even in the city. Averaging 28 mixed city and hwy. The paint is kinda crappy though. I've had a few cosmetic warranty issues but they were fixed immediately with no trouble from Kia Corporate or my dealership. $18,750 for a fully loaded car with leather, sun roof, and 17 inch wheels I couldn't be happier. The manual transmission took some getting used to. Overall great car.

Any negative impressions I had previously about Kia have changed dramatically. I bought a 2010 Forte Koup recently and have enjoyed it more and more every day. Exterior styling is best in class. Great features like Bluetooth, satellite radio, ipod inputs. Car is very smooth especially at high speeds on the interstate. Drove the civic, the corolla, and found the kia to be more stylish. The Forte Koup could use a little more pep on the lower end and sometimes there are severe downshifts with the automatic transmission when you gas it hard. Feels great seeing the ECO light come on when cruising at 75mph.

Not Bad For A Kia!!!!

Bought the 2010 SX Koupe 6-speed manual used with about 36k on it. Work at a kia dealership and fell in love with the car on my first day. decent fuel economy (22 city 27-29 highway 56 miles roundtrip everyday). Could use a little more pep since its main competitor (civic) has about 200 horse while the sx forte has 174. If you buy the car, do it the right way and get the SX. Better handling, bigger engine and sport tuned suspension make the SX the way to go.

Good car and fun to drive. The exterior is very nice and the interior looks nice but the material doesn't look like it will last very long. There are some issues:1) The sun-roof is very noisy and bounces around when hitting a bump. 2) Air condition doesn't feel cold enough especially on a hot 100 degree day.3) There are leaks in the floor board or door that is causing mold to grow on the passenger floor mat. Kia cannot figure out the problem. They just bandage the problem by trying to kill the mold that eventually comes back. Make sure you check yours!4) Gears shift hard unexpectedly.5) Alignment/tires wear down in the inside of tires & change tires after 20k miles. Bluetooth/addressbook bad

Excellent Car...

I traded a 1997 Ram 4wd i have had for 6 years for this car. Obviously the gas mileage was the problem with my truck. Over the course of 3 days i drove a total of 27 different vehicles. I came to my kia dealership with the sole intention of a used car. My salesman gave me the keys to a new 2011 Forte Ex and said drive it like you stole it lol. I was so impressed with the car i signed papers 30 minutes later. My car was slightly used as a low mileage lease to the Kia manufacturing plant a few miles from my home. Its primary function was a carpool car. It was perfectly maintained and had 3400 miles on it. It now has a little over 29000 on it and not even the slightest hint of a problem.

I am amazed they have not recalled this car! My engine has stalled on me 4 times now and no one knows how or why. According to other sites, I am not the only one! I drive only 4 miles away from my home daily to go to work on a very busy street. The last time it stalled, my lights were still on in my car, except my engine cut off, as well as my power steering, in drive, and I had to throw on my emergency lights and use my entire body weight to pull into a lot. This is day 5 of having a rental car through Kia and they still can't "recreate the situation" or "fix it". If you wouldn't put your loved one in it, don't buy it!

I work for a valet company, it is safe to say that i have had the privilege to drive all the cars in this segment and then some. Subtle design with a hint of class that does ot belong in this segment. Not one of its competitors feel this good and i can honestly say that the only car that stands out above it is the focus. Too me the elantra has a weird exterior. The corolla is extremely outdated and feels cheap, the civic is nice but if you are like me and lean on the bigger than average then your leg will stick into the handbrake and you will feel awkward driving it. For the price nothing comes close, hopefully depreciation is not too bad and in my opinion the only deterrent. 87/100

Great car for an even greater price!

I have had this car for 7 months now and I am thoroughly impressed. I am coming from a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta so the fact that I never have to take my Kia Forte into the dealership for a check engine light every month is a very nice perk. My Forte hasn't had any problems yet. I've had the oil changed once (I love that it only needs to be changed every 7,500 miles) and I will be getting a second oil change soon enough. The inside of my Forte is really classy. I love the materials used for the interior. I especially love the type of paint they use for the interior trim. It doesn't chip and peel. Then again, I make sure I never use any kind of harmful cleaner on it.

Excellent so far at 8500 miles

I have the 2010 Forte EX sedan with the Fuel Economy package and could not be happier. This is actually a car for my daughter to drive, so the safety features were an important consideration. We drove the car from Washington state to the gulf coast and averaged 35.2 mpg, including climbing over the Rocky Mountains, driving generally the speed limit (up to 75 mph). While the transmission hunted for gears somewhat with the cruise control in the mountains, the car performed flawlessly. The 5-speed auto. transmission is highly recommended. The 2011's 6-speed would be a welcome step up. The paint quality leaves a little to be desired, but overall the exterior seems to be reasonably good.

I purchased my 2010 kia forte LX (with the 5 speed manual) late last year as a brand new car. I was looking at it as well as the honda fit and ford fiesta and liked it because it was much bigger than the others for the price. While mine doesnt have power windows or locks, it still has the bluetooth, ipod connect, etc. It rides ok but you can feel all the bumps. The build quality is ok, ive had some issues with the mirrors needing replacement for noise. with the 5 speed it has plenty of power. the seats are very comfortable, but the interior materials do feel a bit cheap.Its a very aggressive, nice looking car. For the price you can't beat it, for just under 13 grand it was a great buy

After finding out that Hyundai now owns Kia and the parts are nearly identical I chose the Forte over the Elantra hands down. Styling is 200% better, interior and exterior. Great back seat leg room compared to similar models. Awesome stock stereo system with ample bass. Good trunk space. Good Fuel economy, price, and Great overall value. I have 16,000 miles in a little over 6 months and I haven't had one issue. My only problem was my Verizon phone wouldnt sink to the bluetooth, a phone issue not Kia.

Currently have 7500 miles driven and I love it!

Bottom Line: This is an attractive fun car that is affordable. I have always been a Toyota driver because of their reliability. Well I'm 28 and wanted to get a little more than the basic corolla. The corolla S is a joke! It has no added performance features so it was time to look elsewhere. My target was a Civic SI but it just cost too much. I test drove the Forte and fell in love. The manual transmission is a little touchy but with a little practice its easy to get used to. I love this car and if you give it a try you will too! Note: I gave the car a reliability rating of 5 because of the 100,000 warranty and free roadside assistance for 5 years.

Bought my Forte last week and so far the car has been very good. Korean Cars has been very reliable lately. There's nothing i have as complain so far. Besides the good looks i like all the amenities and not to mention MPG is great. 1st Fill up i rode 400 miles w/ a full tank. I take a lot of Freeway maybe that's why but still very good for a 2.0 4cylinder.

We purchased our 2010 Kia Forte brand new car has been the worst car we have every had, heated seats never worked it came from the factory with them not connected, sunroof cracked for no reason took a month for Kia to pay for it. Then windshield cracked overnight for no reason. now at 7000 miles transmission has went out and Kia said it will take two weeks to fix it and will not provide us with a loner car. We will be trading this car in when we get it back but it has awful resale value. We will never purchase another Kia.

For the price (with rebates) this is hands down the best car in its category. For the price that is... not for what it is. While it has all sorts of wonderful features like bluetooth, satellite, etc., it does not have the same feel of a VW, Toyota, or Honda. That said, the fuel economy is not as good either. I've filled it up 3 times now and in cold weather in mixed driving I've averaged 27mpg. I use to get that in my Acura TSX. The Forte is a very nice car, though. It feels solid, is very quiet, and has a huge trunk. I have the coffee interior which is fantastic looking. I wish Kia would drop the 2.4l into the EX as the suspension on the SX is too stiff.

What's not to like?

My Jetta diesel wagon is my all time favorite car, buit I love the Forte also. Great looks, in and out. Was not expensive to move up to the SX trim. The car is loaded with features, fun to drive, and hope will be reliable. Mileage could be better, but I enjoy the more peppy 2.4L so it is a fair trade off. The safety features, electronics, design, and the price is why bought this car. Love it!

Bought a KIA Forte as a replacement for my Ford Focus. If I had it to do over, I'd get another Focus with SYNC. Automatic transmission shifts VERY early to the point that at times you think it is going to stall. This is by design for fuel efficiency. Good exterior look and good fuel economy; about 30 MPG highway. The bluetooth interface is strange; you can't turn it on and off only using the radio controls. You have to use radio control AND voice command. Inconvenient when more than one person is in the car. iPod interface also drains the iPod battery if left plugged in. This is a known issue. Not a bad car for the money but it could be a GREAT car!

My Kia Forte has won me over

I had been driving a 2009 Nissan Altima prior to purchasing this Kia. I had originally set out only wanting another Altima but could not get a good enough deal. A friend talked to me into checking out the Kia dealership where I test drove the Forte. It was affordable and while I was disappointed it wasn't my first choice, I liked it enough to buy it. 3 weeks later I absolutely love it! I drove that car for 2 1/2 weeks before I had to put gas in the tank! I love the way it looks and the comfortable interior. I would like a little more get up and go, but it does get moving eventually.

This car is great. After I bought a 2011 Kia Sorento early in the year, I just had to buy the Forte with the fuel economy package for my transport car. Two weeks old with a thousand miles, this car will do just fine. Excellent buy.

I've been driving many different domestic and foreign cars for 33 years. I can say with certainty that the Forte is one of my top favorites. It's both sporty and classy inside and out. It's turning heads out on the road. All my family members (my wife and 3 kids) love the looks of and driving the car! If you are interested in the Forte and live in the Chicago-land area, visit Rosen Kia in Elgin. They provided me with a no-pressure and pleasant experience. They worked hard to make sure I was a happy customer and I am.

Great features like Bluetooth, Sirius, nice leather, heated seats, and a wonderfully-tuned sport suspension. Motor pulls well, though a little weak below 2,500 rpm. I STILL haven't been able to make the tires howl in a turn, let alone break traction. Styling is wonderful. The exterior has fantastic proportions. The interior is comfortable, and there's remarkable rear seat space for a compact sports coupe.

Just bought the 2010 Forte SX 5sp A/M. I had a hunch that this would be a worthwhile purchased after reading all the rave reviews. It was hard to convince my partner that Kia has come a long way since the 90's and even the mid 2000's. The standard features you find at any Forte model are extra on Honda, Toyota, Mazda and Nissan's. The bumper and powertrain warranty has no match. The best part is that we were able to buy it at about 300 above invoice with the Southern Hospitality deal (free oil/filter/tire rotation, etc. for life). Thank you Greenbrier Supercenter.

Very pleased overall with performance, styling & creature comforts. Note: Do not see engine temperature / charge / oil pressure gauge. Owned Chevy's my entire life. Never thought I would own anything else. The recession changed my way of thinking to consider best possible value for the dollar. After looking at American makes, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Hyundai, decided that Kia offered the most car / most features / best performance / best economy / best safety / best warranty for the dollar. For less than the cost of one repair bill, upgraded to 10 yr / 100K mi Bumper-To-Bumper warranty. The total price tag was less than any other new car and many 1-8 yr used cars.

When I first started looking at cars i looked at used cars like Audi, Mercedes, and BMW. All great choices until you look at the warranties and cost of ownership. I then turned to the Kia Forte Koup SX and fell in love immediately. It is just as fast to 60 and handles better than you would think. It easily takes on-ramps at 55 mph with no tire squeal. So much more room than other coupes in the market. It even beat my roommates 2010 Ford Mustang V6 in a race. Limiter is set to 132 mph compared to the mustang's 116 mph. For those of you who like music, the stock radio is great but if you love more bass i suggest putting two 12 inch subs and 1000 watt amp. It makes it sound so much better.

I recently purchased my first brand new vehicle and it is the Kia Forte. It drives/handles/rides really well. The interior room is amazing for a smaller car. Impressive gas mileage, sharp looking inside and out. I was very leery about getting a Korean made vehicle because of so many negative comments made about the brand in the past. But so far, I'm impressed. My husband and I weren't looking for a hot rod but our Forte has a sporty look and plenty of acceleration.

I have been driving used cars my entire life. Driving became a chore instead of a joy. When the transmission suddenly broke in my Sable without warning I decided to buy a new car. I made a V line for the Kia Forte. It is the best looking car in its class. I picked up the 5 speed auto with the Eco package and I am very pleased with it. The car has better acceleration than the 4 speed and the steering is smoother and more comfortable. The headroom, leg room, and trunk space in this car is unbelieve. Kia did a good job using the space provided. I am 5'10 and I find my sister's civic to feel cramped. I felt like a was driving in a sardine can. The Forte has room to spare. I love to drive again.

Great car for the money. For under $20,000 you can get a LOT of options. Materials could be better, but I remind myself how much I paid. This car reminds me of my 2003 Honda Accord Coupe. My only complaint really is that after driving for over a week I still get frustrated with 1st gear. I’ve been driving manuals for over 20 years and I think this one is really touchy. Besides that if you want a lot of car but don’t want to spend a lot, the Forte Koup may be a good option.

So I've had my forte for 2 1/2 months now and so far so good! I've logged about 5,200 miles on it already! I've taken about 5 road trips this summer in my Forte, and it has been nothing but an awesome experience! I got my Forte SX model after much research. I used to own a 2000 Chevy Impala (Horrible Horrible Vehicle) and I wasn't in the market for a "New car" per se. I just happened to go to this Kia dealership in my Area to drive a chevy trailblazer, but I ended up walking out with a brand new Forte, lol! I was pretty much going to pay the same price for a brand new car, and a car with over 50,000 Miles on it. It was a no-brainer for me.

This car is more than I expected. I never thought I would own a KIA. I was looking for a sports coup. Looked at Mustang, Camaro, scion tc, and Honda. Mustang and Camaro had great power handling not so great. Scion tc is a Toyota that is a much as I will say about that. Honda's nice but the interior was dull. The Kia has the looks and handles great and the features you get for the price is outstanding. The 2 liter give it enough power and the gas mileage is very good. In the short time I have had this I can't believe the complements I have received. The price was great List was $17,600. I paid $15,200.

This is the first car that I bought. I bought the Forte new and had the car for almost 6 months now. I didn't run into any problems with it. I have the EX model with cloth interior. The inside & outside appearance of the car doesn't look cheap. It is sporty looking which I like. I can keep up with bigger cars on the highway. The engine is pretty powerful for a 4 cylinder. I was surprised. The car has great stopping power if you need to stop fast. I was looking into getting a Corolla and a Mazda 3 but they were both a lot more money & I didn't like the smiling grill on the 2010 mazda 3. Forte looks better. I got a lot more for my money with the Kia Forte. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Just took it on my SX 4-dr on its inaugural tour to north Florida. I have 2,500 miles on it now and LOVE it! Exterior paint and finish is superior. Plenty of exterior chrome and the details have a quality look. A very 'tight' feel to this vehicle. Excellent drive-ability and handling. Steering is sure and responsive. Braking is smooth and reassuringly certain. I preferred the comfort and roominess of the 4-door SX over the 2-door Koup. The transmission can be jumpy with Cruise Control in the hills (combination of 5 speed auto and 2.4 L). Lots of seat maneuverability to find the right passenger seating comfort on the road. Too much plastic in the dash, however it has a finished look and feel.

If fuel economy is important to you, get the Kia EX with the "Fuel Economy Package". It's worth the upgrade ($600) and you get a 5 speed auto instead of a 4 speed (averaging 38 mpg right now- mostly highway miles). The interior is nicely detailed for it's class. Bluetooth and Sirius Radio are great features included w/ this car! Pretty roomy interior for it's size(I'm 6'5") and the trunk is big too! Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase of the Forte (have owned it for a month) and would highly recommend it! Nice looks, great fuel economy, spacious interior, a lot of features for the money, and a great warranty. With all that, you can't go wrong!

Finance guy went on and on to sell me extended warranty, I bought into it to shut him up and leave then went back next day and canceled but still had to go back and forth with him about it just to cancel, way too much pressure to buy it. All in all, I drove a sephia for nine years and forte is several levels up and above Hyundai and I like it better than lancer and mazada3, esp. The price and all the extras

You can take this one to the bank. Best performance for value out there. The six-speed manual is not for first time stick drivers (I've driven 5 speeds for years and this took a little getting used to). The car wants to accelerate, the steering is rock solid and responsive even over rough pavement. I test drove a turbo audi A4 six-speed as well and the forte performed as well in all categories except trim. In my opinion, if you go with a comparable honda or acura, you're just paying extra for the nameplate.

Best decision I made!

I've owned my Forte Koup for two weeks now and it seems to get better everyday. Things I didn't notice on my test drive like the awesome sound of the muffler, very sporty, and pep. You really need to get used to ECO mode and learn how to drive with it to tell, but my car is quick. It doesn't feel like it either, next thing you know you're at 70. All the features you have in this car seem like they should be in a high end model. No car that I have looked at has the quality and amount of features standard. I also have to give a shout to KIA, the support for this purchase has been amazing. They won't stop sending me thank you's and free maintenance coupons, etc. I am so pleased with them

Originally went to the dealership looking at the Kia Soul, but my wife didn't like the look and feel. There was a Forte Koup SX waiting, outside it seemed to be wanting us to drive it. So drive we did and it was a blast on the short test drive. The 2.4L engine has good pull. The transmission reacts quickly. The suspension is firm without being too firm. We got the car in the Copperhead Orange, and its a stunning car to look at. The interior is just as nice, with supportive seats and lots of room inside. The Bluetooth works better than systems in more expensive cars. The standard radio in the SX has good power and sound.

To now, put 150 miles on the car. Really fun to drive after i got the hang of the really touchy clutch. I have drove manual cars forever, this one is really hard to adjust too. But, once done really fun to drive. Interior is very nice in the sx, my only complaint is the seat adjustment is a little weird. I'm 6'2", so seat adjustability is crucial. Overall, great car. Awesome buy for the $$. Had a civic prior to this car, this is hands down a better car in general. 10 yr warr is great too. Only complaint is fuel mileage. I work 2 miles from home and average 24 mpg. But, the fun factor of the 2.4 L 6 spd is worth it.

This car is a major disappointment. Ride is rough. Brakes and gear shift poorly responsive, fuel injection uneven. No vision out rear window. Rear headrests further block vision. Back of car too high for vision. Driver's left vent for air very poor. Controls for sunroof make no sense in terms of open being opposite of closed. Takes excessive time for sunroof control to result in desired position. Remote key to open trunk is extremely slow. Have to be right at trunk for it to respond. The trunk door doesn't stay in the up position. Very narrow access to truck. Would recommend against anyone buying this car.

It drives so nice, I love the red inside, looks small but very roomy inside. I went from a Saturn Ion to the Forte and it was a big upgrade. Love the auto dimming on the rear view mirror, nice touch. Roomy backseat and trunk. I was going to go with a Honda Civic but when looking at the reviews for that people said they wish they went with the Kia Forte, never new about it until a couple days ago and I'm very pleased I went with this vehicle!

We bought this sporty Kia after much research. We looked at and drove the Mazda 3, Honda Civic, Toyota Corrola,and Scion Tc, hands down the Forte was the winner. We got leather heated seats, 2.4 liter engine, moon roof, tinted windows and 17 inch wheels, for $20,130 minus rebates of,1,000 and a 500 dollar owner loyalty rebate (traded in an 2002 Kia sportage) so $18,630 out the door. The Mazda, toyota and Honda were all over $24,000 with no rebate and warranty that cant compare. This Kia is built well. And Kia has improved by leaps and bounds since my 2002 sportage was built. We love this car, it performs as well or better than the competition. I cant say enough good about our little Kia!

I have only had it about a month but have already taken it on to lengthy road trips and it was very comfortable and easy to drive. The satellite radio and bluetooth are awesome too. The stereo in this car rocks!! I traded in a Suzuku SX4 that rode terrible when I got in this car and drove it I felt like I was in a cadillac but for a much cheaper price. I would highly recommend buying the KIA and the warranty can't be beat. I am very happy that I purchased this car. It looks great and is fun to drive. I look forward to driving it every time I get it in it.

This car is pure pleasure to drive from the moment you get behind the wheel to the highway experience. This car has excellent handling good performance, pretty decent gas mileage. The bluetooth is nice and the satellite radio is another plus. Steering column control is not only convenient but it is also good for safety. I couldn't be happier with this car.

I made the switch from a truck with terrible fuel economy to this vehicle - I am getting more than twice as many miles per gallon! I really do love my Forte. One of the great things is all the features that come standard with every model. I have only had it for a few weeks but so far so good! I would suggest to anyone considering the LX to think about getting the EX. The baseline EX is not much more expensive and I think the power windows and locks is a great feature. Hassle those dealers!

I think Kia has a winner!

Picked this car up just over two weeks ago and I love it. I almost got a VW and decided for the money and other factors the KIA was the best value. So far so good, no dissapointments except for one thing. When idling, fully warmed up, i'm noticing a rattling. Looked at exhaust system and what not and seems solid. Sounds more like something in the engine compartment. Not a big deal, thats what warranties are for : ) It's handling is awesome, accelaration is pretty good, a turbo would do this car wonders. Definitely needs a better sound system though, kinda dissapointed in it. The little red lights are also a little cheesey but I like them sometimes (everyone feels the same)Gas is ok.

Fun car to drive, but watch the MPG

I chose to buy SX sedan 6spd. It took me a while to get used to the soft clutch and sensitive gas pedal, but it's a well worth effort. Car handles well for a non-sports car and it really accelerates! The ride is a bit bouncy. I get about 30 - 32 mpg on 75% highway/25% city driving. If you push it a little, the mpg suffers a lot. The instrument panel is not fancy, but very simple/easy to view. I love the voice recognition-enabled bluetooth. The rear trunk sits very high compared to other compacts, but the space is huge. Maybe due to visibility, but this car feels larger than other compacts. The front buffer is a magnet for bug splashes and multiple rock dents into the plastic bumper.

I LOVE my 2010 Kia Forte EX

With 4000k miles in 2 months since driving it off the lot, I have only great things to say about this car! Everything. Absolutely everything is awesome! It looks sharp, like a Lexus and drives like a sporty Cadillac with room to spare! The bluetooth and Sirius rocks especially now that msnbc is on channel 90. I spend more time in my car than my house and feel like I'm not missing out on anything! The fully reclining front seats let me catch some needed z's in sweet comfort, and when I need some zip, it's there big-time without hesitation! For the price, it doesn't get any better than this! The fun is free!

Very Happy

I've been a loyal VW customer, but after my last fiasco with an 03 Passat I had to move on. The Forte is smaller than my Passat but I LOVE IT. I got the dark cherry (the interior and exterior color is so nice and matches very well), it is a little jerky when it shifts gears though and the paint does seem to scratch a little more easily than I'd like, but overall I LOVE IT. I got the fuel economy package and can get almost 450 miles to a tank when I'm driving long distances. It has already been on several 5-9 hour road trips and there has never been a problem. The Bluetooth comes in VERY handy- I hate driving other cars without that feature now!

Seriously it's a KIA!

Look I am a die hard Nissa/Infiniti lover, but I was tired of my 07 Versa. This time around I researched forever and narrowed down to the Nissan Sentra SR and the Kia Forte Koup. I bought the EX koup. I love 2 door cars and ultimately that was the deciding factor in the purchase, well that and the warranty. I drive quite a bit and wanted something that I would be happy driving all the time. So far not one disappointment with this car. Now I know it's a KIA and that may be hard to stomach, but please give it a try. You will not be disappointed. And really if your buying it for a race car, don't it's not and neither are any cars in a compact class. These class of cars are not Ferrari's!!!!

I traded in my 07 Corolla for the 2010 Forte SX Koup. I've had the car for 2 weeks and I still smile everytime I look at it. I got the silver exterior and the sunroof. The car handles like a dream and the acceleration is more than enough (esp when you hit it at 60 to get past a slower car). The ride is a little stiff, but as someone else said it is a sports car. I do not miss my Corolla at all nor do I regret not getting the 6cyl Mustang I was thinking about. You get more "bang for the buck" with this car and more than one person has commented on the exterior styling.

Great looking car ( Dark Cherry), comfortable, roomy, great gas mileage, the last two tanks were 34.9 mpg on north east winter gas. 20/80 cityhighway.

Had a Honda for 16 years, so very hard to buy another brand, but have been very impressed with Kias that friends have, so I drove this one. Wow, what a great car. I hope it lasts like a Honda. Looked at all cars in this segment and was so impressed with all the extras for the price. The exterior looks are what got me into the car. Absolutely one of the best looking cars on the road. Have had it since Novermber. Have already been on a long road trip. What a great highway car. Not one single problem yet. Mileage averages 29,30 in all conditions. Six speaker stereo and steering wheel controls are favorite features. Plenty of power for an average driver. Steering and braking great!

Car has been great for me. I had the clicking / clunking noise on my front end as well, brought it in in a month after I had purchased and they said they couldn't find anything. 3 Months later I bring it back in and they said they figured out what the noise was on all Fortes as there is something behind the front tires that needs adjustment. BUT they will only tell you if you tell them you hear the noise first. Otherwise, they will not tell you about this problem. Hopefully this helps a lot of you out there.

Picked up my Kia 2 weeks ago. I waited untill the dealer could locate a triple black 2 door koup. I moved out of a Volvo S60 turbo so I was used to the speed and handling. I wasn't expecting too much, but after driving the car and putting on the first 1000 miles, I was pleasantly surprised. This car is a winner for what it is. Over time the brand will make improvements so I hope that it won't loose too much value. The service guys I spoke with all said that the car surprises them with what little goes wrong. Lets hope they're right. so far, so good.

In several online reviews, the clutch is mentioned as a negative. I agree that the clutch is definitely "Different" in the 6spd Manual, but I think that's the way it is in many cars. While shopping, I drove a MINI, Civic Si, Genesis Coupe, all manual. Every one had different clutch characteristics. Aside from that, I really like the Forte. It has great exterior styling for a compact car, and nice interior arrangement and surfaces for a car of this price range. The seats are comfortable and the upgraded cloth of the SX feels more durable than the standard cloth seats. The trunk is surprisingly large for a car of this size.

Traded a 2007 Honda Civic for the Forte, and have no regrets. So much quieter on the road, and a lot more fun to drive. Loved the Honda until I drove the Forte. Honda having a lot of issues with there quality including cracked engine blocks. I paid 16700.00 for a LX Civic ,and 15700,00 for a SX Forte that has a lot more standard features. Stability control, and traction control are not even offered on the Honda. Build quality and materials on the Forte are also a step above the Civic, and remember this review is coming from some one who drove the civic for 3 and a half years. The Honda didn't even have heated mirrors, even my 2000 Dodge Neon had heated mirrors.

Otherwise car has been a Dream! It felt and still feels like quality, from its sleek design exterior/interior, To its amazing warranty! Its rough on bumps, but seats are comfy and the bumps just makes it feel TOUGH! Love the AUX/USB Ipod hookup! Plenty of storage..Traction Control is great in winter!

Traded a 2007 Honda civic for the Forte. Loved my Civic, but the Forte is a much better car. From day 1 the Civic had a lot rattles and noises, not the Forte. Recieved $1400.00 from Honda for paint defects, Forte paint has no defects. A lot of reviews say Honda civic engine is quiet and refined, and the Forte engine is loud, and unrefined. Forte engine is quiet and smooth. Honda was a nice car, but the Forte has a quiet interior with little road noise or wind, and it is fun to drive, handles great, and is great on the high way even in heavy winds. In my opinion Honda must be paying some one for there good reviews. Honda Civic has a lot of TSB like cracked engine blocks. Civic or Forte. FORTE

I never thought I'd buy a Kia but I couldn't be happier at the moment. The SX with leather is definitely the best trim to go. I got it in Spicy Red, which comes with red stitching on the leather, heated seats. I love the auto shutoff on the headlights/fog lights. The steering wheel controls are very well planned out and the steering wheel itself looks great. The back seat and the trunk have significantly more room than other comparable compact sedans like the Focus, Corolla, and Civic.Engine has alot of peppiness to it

Between me and my wife we have bought about 6 new cars in the last 25 years. We have owned Ford, Mitsubishi's, Toyotas, Nissans and finally Kias. I have owned the Kia Forte for the past 6 months. It is the best car I have bought. My enthusiasm for the car hasn't diminished in the past 6 months. I like the firm suspension that the Forte was intentionally designed with unlike the VERY soft ride of Toyota and GM. Quality, pickup and gas mileage is great. I do not know how they got the highest horsepower with the greatest mileage in its class for a gas driven car. The engineering of the car is solid and the interior is nice and the car lines are good. I would highly reccemend this car.

I drove a Camry and Acura TL, two of the most reliable and popular cars in the market, so going to a Forte was a big decision for me. I've had the car for a month and I feel I get far so much than what I paid for. All the standard features are there + USB, Bluetooth and the 2.0L engine is good enough for daily driving with good mileage. Of course you are not buying a $40,000 car, so don't expect any grand performance or power. This is an under $20,000 car with all the features such as moonroof, leather + America's best warranty. To put all these in a Corolla or a Civic will cost you $5-6k more. I strongly suggest this to any recent college graduates and people who drive a lot.

THe fact that its inexpensive and is flat out fun is awesome. I love the plethera of options. I have found the places where Kia cut costs and used cheaper things, and overall, I think the car was made well, and designed well. I think that once word spreads about Kia being reputable, this will be Kia's top seller, and maybe top seller in its class. Better than the Civic, and cheaper? It just has to prove reliability to me and I will call it a home run.

I can only echo the comments by Rockin RN -- I agree with everything except that I think it's a little harsh on the bumps, but that's to be expected since it's a sports car. The 2.4 engine is very responsive from the start and even after it's up to speed. The gas mileage is good so far (I've only had it for about three weeks) and I'm averaging 26 MPG combined city/highway. I've also got the Racing Red, automatic and it gets a lot of compliments. Kia did a great job with it and with their warranty it's a winner so far.

Been driving my Koup for about 3 weeks now and I must say that this is a nice car. The build quality is very good with no squeaks or rattles yet. The 2.4L engine is quite peppy and the 5 speed automatic transmission is responsive. The radio sounds very good for a base system and the standard Sirius satellite radio makes it very enjoyable. The cloth sport seats are comfortable and seem to be high quality. There are a few details that show where cost cutting was implemented such as no real carpeting in the car. The floor is covered with some type of fuzzy material, although carpeted floor mats are standard. Also, the silver parts of the alloy wheels are actually plastic inserts.

I 'downgraded' from a Chrysler Concorde; the Forte is really quite comfortable & I am 6'2", 230 lb. Buy the SX trim - great value, handling, & fast engine. This car hits 90 with ease -- feels like 60. The 2.4 Liter engine & 5 speed work well together. My family likes the heated seats, iPod / USB port, Bluetooth, & satellite radio; prior to this car, I called these luxuries - but they are now necessary. You have to spend $ 25K plus to get this equipment in comparable cars. This car has been solid from the start & is more comparable to Camry, Fusion & Malibu than the compacts. A great value. Kia has now come to Georgia to build their cars & SUVs.

I first saw the Koup in online reviews from the 2008 New York Auto Show. I was really impressed with the body lines, and intrigued by the 2.0 with Turbo. When the Genesis Coupe came out with the Turbo, I was certain the Koup wouldn't be far behind - alas it was not to be. I do have to say, however, that the 2.4 with the 6 speed manual has plenty of pep and is fun to drive - once you're used to first gear! After driving an 05 Spectra5 for 111,000 miles, I was certain that another Kia purchase would be a wise one. My milage is a little less than the Spectra - but the engine is larger... After over 2000 miles, I am not disappointed!

I had a Vw jetta and a 2000 honda civic, and the Forte has more power than bothe.Smoothe 5 speed manual transmission, nice steering wheel controls, nicely placed heat vents. Only complaint is the sterio needs tweeters mounted up near mirrors, sounds a little muffled. Base model still outshined my other two cars. Plans to put some 18 inch rims, body kit, and better interior speekers. Hedders and axaust already available 3rd party, well priced. To not be a hybrid, the gas milage blows me away, but drop in K&N airfilter adds about 15 more horsepower and 75 more miles per full tank of gas. Fun car, lots of potential for us tuner car drivers,BUY IT.

The Forte EX with electric steering feels like I'm driving a high end Lexus or Acura. Stay away from hydraulic LX model since it does not feel the same. The Forte handles very well with an adequate performance motor.

I just purchased my spicey red EX Christmas Eve. I need a commuter car that not only looks good but is fun to drive. I selected the 5 speed version making my commute to work a pleasure. The Forte's fit and finish is outstanding and the sound system can't be beat for the price. I looked at other cars and found that the KIA had more standard options for the price making it a no brainer. Mine has the sunroof and upgraded wheel package. It is a clean looking, fun, and comfortable vehicle that gets great gas milage. The price was just a Tad over 17K out the door. Can't beat that for a new that appears to be built to last. My dealer also gave me free oil changes and tire rotations 4 life.

My Koup is Racing Red with an automatic transmission and sport cloth interior. I have owned the car for 3 weeks and so far it is an exceptional car for the money. The build quality is solid with absolutely no sqeaks or rattles, doors close with a reassuring thunk, the paint looks good and the fit and finish is very good. The engine runs and idles very smooth with more than adequate acceleration. Nice sporty ride, not too harsh over bumps. I traded in my 2005 Acura TL for this car and I can honestly say that I don't regret it.

This is my first car and it is perfect! Everything is great. Every little thing is perfect. The quality sound of closing the door is great. Its a lot of fun to drive and has great power. I test drove the ex and sx and was much more impressed with the sx. The sx comes with everything nice from red stitching in the seats to speaker lights that flash to your music and it comes with the better suspension and engine.This car is truly amazing.... kia did a great job!

I bought this car 5 days after seeing it. I was skeptical at first because of the kia reputation of being cheap, but after doing research and actually going for a test drive I was blown away by this car. it is responsive, the sport tuned suspension just hugs the turns. acceleration is great, and the gas mileage is excellent. Kia finally got it right with this one. If you are looking at this car take a look at the competition and you be surprised that they cant touch Kia's value on this one. I will say that this trim level comes with almost everything standard, I got the added sunroof, but in hindsight I should have also purchased the auto dimmer for the review. Just food for thought.

Awesome car, awesome price!

I traded in a 2005 Lincoln LS V8 for this and I was amazed at the pick up that this 4 cylinder has. I needed something with better gas mileage and I am getting between 35-40 mpg, which is roughly double from the Lincoln. If you aren't too crazy about the exterior design, the interior might change your mind. It has a very young and sporty feel and is rather comfortable with all the standard features. I am happy with the trade and look forward to saving big bucks on gas and maintanence!

Ok i had a Ford Escort before and i loved the fact it was american. But when time came to get new I wanted something nice. I don't make a million bucks a year and i really don't need to with this. Had this basically since it hit the car lots. I do a good bit of driving and no matter how i drive whether its pedal to the metal or soft and slow the worst mileage i had was 28. I love the radio its a blast and everyone who rides in always loves it. Everyone who saw this car loves it. Its already gotten pretty cold here already and iv'e had no probs with it starting. This car takes corners and just all in all drives like a champ. I have no complaints about this car!! BUY IT!!!

I bought this vehicle brand new! 2 months ago and I was in the dealership service shop within a week or so. KIA customer service has not helped much. I have been in and out of the shop 3 times with the same problem. One time the car was there for 3 weeks waiting for "Techs" who admitted that they don't know whats wrong with the vehicle. I called KIA and they told me there was nothing they could do but "make sure the dealership would commit all their resources to fixing it" which they have failed to do 2 times already. good luck if you get it.

Drove it and bought it so many standard options. Kia hav come a long way they put the others to shame. My son drives 100 miles a day highway 35mpg average.

Well designed, in and out. Fit and finish impressive. Feels stable and powerful. Classy, understated interior. Very well appointed for price. Instrumentation and dash clearly lighted. Strong acceleration, though A/T is a little balky and indecisive (note Oct. 09 TSB that promises a fix). Cruises quietly and effortlessly. More than adequate leg and head room front and rear even with sunroof. Seats comfortable enough, but could use more lateral support and cushioning. Above average suspension, but a little jumpy over uneven surfaces. Sound system excellent, but speed sensitive audio feature is ineffective. Bluetooth needs better firmware. Large capacity trunk. Very good fuel economy.

After the wife got one, I decided to move to a car too. I had planned on a Civic, but too expensive and dealer did not want to offer book on trade (Escape). Originally planned to get EX with sunroof, but wanted dark interior (coffee on EX not to my liking). Dealer had a Copperhead SX on the lot with sunroof and cloth interior. The red stitching on the seats has grown on me, but I love everything else on the car. Engine has great power and currently getting 31 mpg with only 650 miles on it so far. Backseat has way more room than anything else in this size. Bluetooth is so cool and easy to use. Got the car for invoice, $1500 in rebates, and 0% financing for 36 months.

I purchased this car back in August. Its a nice car it has over 3000 miles I bought the ex with fuel economy pkg I do mostly city driving I was getting 30 mpg which added up to 400 out of tank now i'm getting 360 per tank whats up with that? Second the drivers seat is killing me I can feel the steal construction of the seat with the air bag in the way. Kia won't do anything about it beware if your a tall & mature man stay away from this car!!!! The engine lag is some thing I still can't get use to? All other options for the money are great. I just wish it was more comfortable. I only drive to work and that's it The steering is not tight it pulls or leans to the right.

Ok, I have only rented this car twice now and I had to check out the reviews because I was so impressed. I've driven everything under the sun because of my traveling job and Forte simply impressed me in this class! The reviews on this site has confirmed my feeling. I don't need to buy a car right this minute but if I had to I would definitely buy this one. The only other one I would consider is the Toyota Prius 2010, but I'm sure it's much pricier. I'll have to do some calculations. My research says that you should get the fuel economy EX model with 5 speed automatic. It comes with impressive electric steering. I just had to put my 2 cents in!

I traded in a mazda6 which was good but just boring.I've had the car for 4 weeks. The new Forte has character. It's a fun car to drive. It has plenty of room, a large trunk, plenty of back seat room.It handles great and with the 2.4 engine has more accelaration then the old mazda6 with a 3.0.The satellite radio and easy MP3 hook up is great.It evens comes with bluetooth which I didn't care about but makes driving safer.It has most options standard on the SX.The new mazda 3 may have a nicer interior(ugly grill) but I would rather have the extra money in my pocket.Once you get used to the delayed throttle it's a blast to drive.Nothing in its class has as much power or is as much fun to drive.

Ok, I paid $16K, without the equity from my trade, it would have been $17.5K including all taxes and fees. Now tell me another car that gives you the following at that price. Full steering wheel controls, pwr windows/locks, keyless, cd/mpw, flash drive, ipod connectivity, sirius, 5 speed auto tranny, ac, cc, etc. Oh, 5 yr/60 month b2b, 10 yr/100K pwrtrain. I have more headroom than I did in my Tundra, 40 mpg on the hwy, and a very reliable and well handling suspension. Nice pep on that engine also!

I was given a rent a car when my car was in for repair. I requested the 2010 Forte that was on the lot since I had an interest in buying one and thought that this would be the perfect opportunity for an extended test drive. I liked the car and all of the extras that are included.. bluetooth, etc. I was pleased with the ride and the gas mileage was OK. I was hoping for a little better. HOWEVER, I was very disappointed that in 7 places on the car, the paint was already bubbling and peeling. The paint appeared to be applied in a tthin fashion. I know this was an issue on one of the 2005 Kia models but would have hoped this was corrected. Has anyone else had any problem like this????

I really wanted to buy a Honda Civic. I had a hard time making up my mind what to buy when I couldn't get the price on the Civic to meet my budget. I decided to check out the Kia Forte Ex. What a wonderful choice. I saved over 5000 dollars and came away with a vehicle that i think in the long run will just as good as the Civic. This car is loaded with more options and seems to be as well built as the Civic. Only time will tell. This car is really fun to drive. It has more pep than the Civic. I really like the steering wheel controls and the Blue Tooth.

I just bought this today. Noted items: As others have said, great performance, looks good, good ride, OK on road noise,lots of features at a great price. I'd like better rear view with the mirror, but the headrests seem to block a bit. I didn't notice any problem with the 4-speed gearing like the main review; things felt fine to me. Door closing seemed a little tinny, as in "not as solid" as some I'd driven. I mainly looked at Elantras as an option, but their high engine noise and lower acceleration made the difference. Minor differences include a more solid feel in the Elantra and better cup holders, but for overall value, the Forte seems hard to beat. I haven't tried all the features yet.

I actually have the EX with fuel economy package. To me, the clincher was the 5 speed auto and electric steering on this package. I drove an EX w/ 4 speed auto and it seemed sluggish getting down to any real acceleration. Also, the steering on the regular EX would drift especially on uneven pavement. The EX w/ fuel economy is awesome, however. The acceleration and shift points are perfect and the steering holds the road with solid feedback and good tight steering the whole way. I can't speak well enough about the EX w/ fuel economy package. You get the best of everything for a great price! It does preclude not being able to get the sunroof, but I wanted the best riding car first & foremost.

Drove the Soul (which is GREAT looking, but a bit too small for my needs), the Honda Fit, & a couple others on my radar as well. Forte won, hands down--simply no other car on the market gives the same bang for the buck. Terrific handling and cornering, & features for price can't be beat. Bluetooth: way cool. Sirius satellite: one of those things you didn't know you needed 'til you have it. Ipod connect: sweet! (note, you can get the ipod connector on ebay all day long for less than $20, including shipping--nearly $40 thru the dealer) Trunk is so big, it's almost magic. Ride is quiet and smooth, plenty of room in back seat. Kia is here to stay--Detroit, take note!

I love the stereo, cell phone and other controls on the steering wheel and the fact that I don't have to turn my lights off and on. I will wait to really rate reliability.

I now have about 300 miles on my dark cherry metallic EX. I went with the standard EX package with auto plus the wheels and sunroof. I am very pleased with this purchase. I have done a mix of highway and city driving that netted about 30.1 MPG on the first tank. Not bad! This car is essentially fully loaded and drives like a much more expensive car. I would highly recommend this car to anyone. From interior noise (great), to ride (smooth), to exterior looks (great and gets compliments), this car is a gem. I hate to use qualifiers, but at this price, it is REALLY a gem.

I bougth this car couple of months ago. I don't think there is any car better in this segment than forte. I have driven almost all the major cars in the segment, and forte beats them all. Civic might be a little more refined, but forte has more power and features. Mazda 3 is fun to drive on short routes, but on highway, forte beats it and it has better fuel economy with more space. Lancer's engine is very noisy, and it has a terrible fuel economy.

I bought this vehicle approx. 2 weeks ago. I like it a lot! It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it's a great car to drive. The day after I bought it, we took it on a trip. We put about 350 miles on the car in 3 days. When I checked the mileage, I couldn't believe it. I was getting 38 mpg! I have since filled the gas tank a 2nd time and still get 38 mpg. This is more than what I anticipated and I'm very happy. The car is comfortable and handles great. I was a little nervous as a first time buyer of a Kia, but so far I'm happy with my purchase. The only item I need to have checked is the outside passenger mirror. There is a whistling coming from it going over 35 mph.

After seeing a commercial for the Forte, I went to a dealership to check it out. I checked it out, drove it, and did some research online. I bought one about a month later. I couldn't be happier. I've always driven trucks and SUVs, but I needed a more fuel-efficient car because of my daily commute. The Forte SX is fun, looks great, decent gas mileage, and a ton of standard features. I never thought I'd drive a small foreign car, but I love this car. I could afford more expensive cars, but I think this one had the most bang for the buck. For me personally, I wasn't interested in the LX or EX, the SX was the only option.

Purchased this car as a birthday present to myself a few weeks ago. This car rides, looks, and feels as if I spent thousands more on it. I test drove other vehicles in it's class such as Toyota corolla, Mazda 3, civic sedan, just to name a few and the forte won out over these cars. The Mazda and Honda had horrible road noise where as the forte was very quiet inside.

The gear ratio feels awkward at times, but you get used to it. So far I am sub 30 mpg combined. I would like to see that go up. Overall, an outstanding compact sedan!

This is a great car especially for the cost. Very Peppy, good handling, good road feel, quiet, smooth, big trunk, outstanding features. You can't ask for much more. I have a little over 100 mi on the car and have averaged about 26mpg according to trip computer with a mix of highway and city driving. Pretty good so far but hopefully that will increase with break in. This car really is an outstanding buy!

In August I purchased a 2010 Kia Forte SX with black cloth interior, and love it. I looked at the Civic, Mazda3 and Corolla; the Forte SX was ~$1500 less money, had a few more standard options (e.g., bluetooth)and to me, looks better than the other three. Plus, the warranty is very good (5/60 & 10/100). The exterior color is black, and I had the windows tinted, so it really adds to the overall looks. With the sport suspension, it takes the small road bumps kinda hard, plus there does seem to be a rattle in the suspension area when going over the bumps (I'll drive a little longer, if still an issue, I'll get this checked out). Overall, great ride, great looking compact car, great value.

EX with the fuel economy package. Took an expert (my 16 year old daughter) to the KIA dealership to test drive the forte after spending too much time researching vehicles on the internet. First impression was the car looked great in person (a wink from my daughter confirmed this). Next came the test drive-forte handles better than most vehicles its size-leg room to spare (6'1 250Lbs)-getting in and out wasn't a chore either-visibility front and sides is extremely good. Standard safety equiptment is exceptional. Road noise was minimal on smoooth and township roads. Gadgets (bluetooth, ipod, auto manual, abs brakes and stability control for this price are great. Don't forget the warranty. C Ya

Great Compact with world class feature

I looking for gas saving vehicle. I live in Puerto Rico, so gas is very expressive. This Kia Forte has everything that I looking in a vehicle, standard options like sat radio, leather,ipod interface,style and sporty lines and off course the 2.4 powerplant to feel the power. This is a very, very hit in it compact segment, a great competitor to corolla,civic,elantra,lancer and others.

price, quality, warranty, looks, road noise, engine acceleration, smart interior controls, and the ride quality for a sedan at this price really surprised and sold me on this unit-test drive one and you will understand kia is giving this vehicle away to get the american consumer to buy kia.

Wow this car is fun to drive. It's everything said about the car and more. We first tested the 2.0L EX 5 speed with a little better fuel mileage and like the car. We then tested the 2.4L with a 6 speed SX model loaded with options and fell in love.The transmission was a little getting used too with the gears so close and has a lot of get up and go.I would get this car in this price range over any other. We are very happy.

Great car

I recently picked up the forte SX. I guess there is a very limited number of leather packages out there and I could not pick one up. But I did get the sun roof. This car is great. Awesome feel when driving. Takes corners pretty tight. Engine has enough go for what I need. Car looks awesome with the 17 tires.

From a M3 to a Kia?

Thats what we did, from a 2003 M3 Convertible to a spicy red sx loaded with leather heated seats and sunroof. This Forte is an amazing little car with many standard features. We started to look for a car that would give us great gas milage and be big enough to take on short trips to Flordia. This car is very roomy and gives us plenty of space. Me and my wife both love the car. We drove over 500 miles in a clunker to pick it up. The drive home was great and got 33 mpg with the air full on. Kia did a great job putting great standard features such as heated outside mirrors, bluetooth, ipod in, steering wheels controls, and triple airbags, traction control, stability control and abs.

Great new compact challenger

After much research and test driving I decided to go with the Kia Forte EX. For what I paid I could not even touch anything from the competition. It certainly didn't hurt that it was the best looking and had the most standard HP of anything I compared. It has a very smooth ride for a compact car and plenty of pep to boot. This car is certainly worth a look for those considering Honda, Toyota, etc. However, after looking at this car you may not look back!

So many standard options for a compact

2010 Kia Forte SX - We were lucky enough to get the SX with all the options including the leather. This car is amazing. With times a little tougher my wife sold her 2003 Bmw M3 Convertible. We both love the car and the heated leather seats made the transition to this new car great. We drove 500+ miles to pick it up and it was fun to drive home after the purchase. It is almost unbelievable how this car has so many standard options on the base model. With the sirus radio and bluetooth radio it makes it even easier and very fun to drive. The car handles very well at 80 and seems to stop very good. The ride is smooth until you hit small pot holes, then the car feels a little ridged.

Love it!

We purchased the Forte EX in Titanium after an exhausting search. We initially had settled on a Nissan Sentra then saw this and decided to drive it and we were sold. Most of the complaints that the editors at Edmunds had about the automatic transmission's shifting is easily resolved by using the auto-manual feature. Comfort is fantastic, handling is great for a car of this class.

Great car with great mileage and comfort

I also have the EX with the Fuel Economy package. Runs nice and quiet along with being comfortable inside. I traded in a Dodge Caravan and this is my second Kia (also own a Sedona). Kia products seem to be very well constructed since I haven't had any problems and really don't expect any. The 3 months Sirius is great since I've never used this before so it's a good way to try it out. The bluetooth is also great, especially for your phone (it shows who you are talking to and has voice activated commands).

First Time Kia Owner

Just bought a Forte Ex - leather, sunroof, alloy wheels... most of the toys. So far, less than 100 miles in, we're enjoying this car. It looks sharp, and the ride is great for a small car. It's comfortable, fairly quiet, and has enough get up for us. We love the stereo, the Bluetooth, and all of the features that make driving fun, and hopefully, safe, that are usually found on more expensive cars. Very nice for the money. It remains to be seen how it will hold up, but then there is the warranty. We'll let you know.

Kia has definatly come a long way. This car has amazing handling and great power I did not even realize it was a 4 cylinder. I am 6’2” and have an enormous amount of legroom. Everything in the interior is easily accessible. The look is amazing it will be a great replacement to the Spectra. And 40 MPG can’t ask for anything more.
