Small economic vehicle, sharp looking interior & exterior, easy access to controls, seats are not that comfortable for trips longer than an hour. After market lumbar support and seat cushion has helped some.
The 2018 Kia Forte was the last year in a series--the newly designed 2019 Kia interior is by far more appealing to the eye. If the '19 isn't in your budget, then there are many 2018s with very few miles and a great price--I would recommend one of those. The mileage is better than the EPA estimate and the car's controls are user friendly. I drive a German car as well and they are known for good ergonomics but I think Kia is up to snuff with them--perhaps even more user friendly. The window tinting (or windows themselves) on mine was defective, so look at the vehicle very closely in bright sunshine. Overall? A good buy and a good brand (I have owned only 4 German cars and 13 Korean--the German brands may be more fun, but the Kia is practical and not a dull drive either)
Considering how cheap this car is, it’s FANTASTIC. This is the first new car I’ve bought and I adore it. It’s actually pretty nimble and peppy for such a small engine. The gas mileage is the second-best I’ve ever gotten in a car (I used to have a Smart Car.). You definitely do hear the engine at higher RPMs, but I don’t mind at all. It’s obviously not a powerhouse, but it’s not meant to be. It’s very comfortable to drive and the interior styling is not cheap-looking in my opinion. I love it! I tell my family that I’m taking this car to the grave with me! Unless I eventually upgrade to an Optima...or a Stinger....
While visiting Albuquerque I brought my Silverado 3500 in for oil change, fuel filter, transmission flush and rear differential service. Ray and the entire staff were friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Everything was explained to me upfront and services were completed as I expected. I also met with the sales team while waiting. They were also easy to talk with and provided great information about new trucks without any sales pressure. I recommend Reliable Chevrolet for any sales and service needs.
