"very nice ride" by tbone39 on 12/09/2012. Trim: 2013 Kia Forte EX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: i love the styling of this car how it was made and the round edges of this car and how firm it is and the inside is very comfortable and the gear shift looks like it could be a standard i love the interior design but i wish kia would have given the 2013 Forte power seats as well with also blind spots in the mirror like the rest of the compition's but in all i love how this car was made and i'm enjoying this car very fun to drive and take curves very good good job kia alittle bit more impprovement and this i will be good and i love all the roominess on the inside wow so much room in the trunk of the car and the bluetooth hands free on the steering wheel very good job and volume button
Cons: well it say's that the mpg is 27 city 37 highway but i'm not seeing that yet i got this car with 14 miles and now 1608 miles on it now and i'm seeing the ECO on but i'm looking at the gas hand and it tell's me other wise driving just as they say to drive the car and i still see the gas hand moves is it the gas i'm using or what? regular unleaded gas i have read others what they say how they are getting 36 mpg but i don't see that all it's a good car and i love to drive fun to drive
Overall review: i see little honda civic in the Fort but i think i looks better than the civic and you can't beat Kia's warranty 100,000 miles power train very good job Kia the forte seems to be a very good choice for the styling and the spectra that it replace did a good job Kia keep up the good work with the design i love the warranty maybe just advice make the Forte Koup convirtible

Forte LX, with automatic option. by analyzerlx on 01/07/2013. Trim: 2013 Kia Forte LX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I like the smoothness and firmness. The car seems to be sporty and comfortable. Economy, I tend to get around 36 highway, going from 65-80 mph (depending on traffic). Bluetooth. Satellite radio.
Cons: Gas gauge seems to read lower than what it actually is. Automatic windows, door locks, and cruise should be standard.
Overall review: I like the car and would recommend Kia to anyone. Most of my cars tend to be for the long haul. I have a Mazda MPV with about 120,000 and just traded in the '04 Optima with almost 190,000 miles. I believe this car has what it takes to make it to 200,000 or more. We'll see in the coming years.

Mileage not what was expected. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/26/2013. Trim: 2013 Kia Forte EX 5-Door, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I loved the roominess and style of the 2013 Forte Hatchback. I like the way it drives.
Cons: I have 5000 miles on my car which the dealership says should be broken in, Supposed to get 26 city, 36 hwy and 29 combined mileage. The highest I have been able to coax out of it (hwy) is 22.5 hwy and about 18 - 19 city! I am tracking my mileage both using the console and tracking by hand. VERY disappointed. Gas mileage was one of my priortities when purchasing my car. Will continue to track mileage and report to Kia until they do something about it!
Overall review: Wish I had gone with another car right now. We will see what the dealership/Kia does to make this right if I don't see improvement. Then maybe my opinion will change.

Good car by Dave on 02/09/2013. Trim: 2013 Kia Forte EX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The Kia Forte is an all aorund good vehicle. It is roomy and drives well. After 7,000 miles I have had no problems with the vehicle and it rides well.
Cons: nothing so far.
Overall review: Good car, no complaints. Have even used this for toting around two teenagers and the car worked very well for that.

My first new car and I love it. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/29/2013. Trim: 2013 Kia Forte LX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great on gas. Large trunk. Rides smooth.
Cons: Power locks, windows and cruise control should be standard for a 2013 vehicle. HID headlights should come with this car as well.
Overall review: After months of research I was certain I was going to get a Ford Fusion but the dealership offered me this car and the rest is history. Best impulse buy I ever made.
