I've only had my new Kia Forte EX for 3 days, however, I feel like I have been driving it forever. It is so easy to handle, that it took no getting used to. Every day I notice something new about it---still learning. It has plenty of power, and is smooth riding. Nice exterior and interior---I chose black and grey interior, and I love it. Trunk is spacious, as I am a beach person and I pack a lot into it. I am getting used to the back up camera. I am sure it will be helpful in the future once I get used to it. My compliments to Ian and the manager at Stamford Kia on Selleck St. They were very helpful in assisting me.

I got the car at 15 miles and put on 2200 in 3 days. It rode beautifully. used the cruise control which was so easy.Hardly had to stop for gas. gas mileage on hwy for 41 mpg. Liked the lights that they came on automatic when it got dark. we didnt have time to see how a few features were used so we only used what we needed to. Heat and air and defrost was fantastic. only had to put it on 1, it was so comfortable. and the cabin inside was very comfortable with plenty of room. easy to put our cups in the holder. I am very pleased and happy we made the right decision.

I've named my car Mandy. I've never named a car before. She's very stylish on the outside and very sporty on the inside. I have navigation, 17" wheels, leather and sunroof!! I traded my '05 Elantra for Mandy. I have not missed my Elantra! Mandy has a lot for the money. More then I realized!!! Better MPG then the Elantra and is very comfortable to drive long distance. VERY MUCH WORTH THE INVESTMENT OF A NEW VEHICLE!!!

Krazy about Kia

I was in the market for a good car that gets great miles to the gallon. When I went to Kia to test drive a new Kia Forte, I was hooked! Nice smooth ride, great handling, enough get up and go and had all of the bells and whistles a person could ask for. Tight turns are a breeze in this car. I've gotten a good 27 mpg in the city and up to 40 on the freeway. If you are in the market for a good car, good warranty and a reasonable price, then get to a Kia dealer.

Great Car!

Strong engine for the size, cruises up hills with no problem. Excellent driving position. Holds two adults in the back comfortably. The hatch area hold our 50 lb dog no problem even with the back seats up. Great styling, intuitive controls, and fit and finish you'd expect on a much higher priced vehicle. Had the Kia Soul before which we loved, and this feels just as big.

Forte

by from Suffolk, VA on March 26, 2017

Very comfortable and rides nice. Adjusts for my height and kids have room with car seats. Gas mileage appears to be great as well.
