2012 Kia Forte Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Size of car implies a compac, yet overall handling & performance feels closer to an intermediate-size vehicle. Happy with overall handling on VT roads. Vehicle is light so during high wind conditions vehicle gets pushed around. Engine & transmission performance very good. Higher speeds on interstates /thruways car felt very controlled & gas comsumption/mpg is surprisingly very good.
Lent car to visiting family members and all were impressed with this Forte.

Review

I have had no major complaints about this car. Nothing outstanding, but it is a high quality, problem free compact car. The engine is peppy and acceleration is surprising for this car. The only issue I have is the remote start feature. It doesn't function properly all of the time. I haven't taken it in for that problem since it is out of warranty and I don't use the feature often. The dashboard and controls are very simple and easy to use. There are no annoying design features.

Review

I bought my 2012 Forte brand new four years ago. It's going on 99k and the only thing I've ever done to it was get a new set of tires and regular oil changes. This car has given me absolutely no problems. It's got great fuel economy and looks great. I plan on driving it until the wheels fall off. So far it looks like that's going to be for a really long time. Love this scar!

Review

Comfy little car, trust it on long trips, but the interior design is basic, bunch of rattles here and there. engine makes weird noises sometimes, clutch started feeling weird 10 minutes after i left the dealer.

Review

Don't let the price tag fool you, this car is well built. It doesn't give that cheap feel you'd expect from a lower budget vehicle. The interior is very comfortable for my petite frame, I don't have trouble seeing the road or maneuvering. My larger passengers seem quite comfortable as well. Has a peppy engine and tight suspension, shifts smoothly, very quiet, brakes effortlessly.. This car does well on winding roads.
The feel of the car when driving it is very similar to the '11 Ford Focus. My Forte has high mileage (70,000 miles) & hasn't had a single problem, runs great, & is very dependable which is great since the Focus started having problems at 21,000 miles.


Best Features

Bluetooth, USB hookups, remote start, bright headlights, spacious trunk, quiet ride, steering wheel controls, great gas mileage.


Worst Features

There is no temp gauge on dash..
