2011 Kia Forte

Trim: FORTE KOUP SX with Automatic transmission

A Joy to Drive
Initially taking this car for a test drive, you wouldn't normally expect with its 2.4L, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder however this car can really kick into high gear when want it to. There is something satisfying about putting your foot down and getting immediate reaction, however be mindful as you might get a neck crick from the quick responding 6 speed automatic transmission. The car's interior is nothing to out of the ordinary, however with the added iPod port as well as satellite radio which are all accessible from the steering wheel nothing seems cumbersome. Even though it is a two door car, there's still plenty of room for friends in the back. A 6'1 foot man like myself can still sit in the back without much hassle, and enough head room to not feel like your packed in a tuna can. Also not forgetting Kia's fantastic bumper to bumper 5 year warranty is the real winner here, Kia has gone great lengths to back their vehicles and manufacturing by literally fixing anything that happens to the vehicle within those 5 years up to and including minor car scratches! I would recommend this vehicle for anyone looking for a first brand new car.

Forte ... I pleasant surprise!
We recently purchase a Kia Forte and let me say how surprised I was with this hot little car. Kia comes loaded with standard feature that you'd need to pay for with any other model in it's class. It's amazing on gas and has great pick up. This car was a great, reliable addition to our family.
