The Kia Forte is a well engineered vehicle that I believe is best in class for the price.
I paid $17,713.00 out the door for a EX 5-door in Titanium with stone interior.
My car was equipped with auto-dimming mirror w/compass, wheel locks, rear bumper applique, cargo net, cargo tray, spashguards and an i-pod cable.
I had no trade-in and the price included 6% sales tax and all dealer fees.
I did get $2,000.00 in rebates.
This car is fun to drive around town and on the interstate.
I'm very impressed with the design, quality and functionality of this car.
I don't think you will find a better car under $21K.
It's a well thought out design and everything makes sense.
I own two Hondas and they have nothing on Kia other than a higher resale value.
The Kia out classes my Civic easily.
I like everything about this car.
I bought it for my daughter and she loves it and so do I.
I would add a little bit more support to the front seats.
