Purchased Forte in late May 2011. Interioe comfort is good. Mileage could be better that current average of 26 mpg. Took it on vacation and the average mpg jumped to 30.5-more highway miles at higher speeds. On rain slick streets it handles good.
I insisted on having fog lights and with that upgrade package got the sport steering wheel which I love. Having arthritis in hands the grips make it easier to hold onto. I like the automatic lights except I have to turn them to "true on" when it rains in order to have the lights on when the wipers are on.
If the sedan had the 2-door model interior seats it would be a perfect car. Those seats wrapped around you and made it more secure. Upgrading to similar 'on while in gear' and lights off when not in driving gear would make this car comparable to a Subaru.
