2014 Kia Forte EX Long-Term Road Test

2014 Kia Forte: 15,000 Miles

March 25, 2014

2014 Kia Forte

We've had our 2014 Kia Forte in our long-term fleet for about 9 months now. We also just recently cleared 15,000 miles in the car, which means we're right on schedule for getting about 20,000 miles at the completion of our one-year test.

I also went back and checked our previous updates. Nothing has broken on the car, and it's been to the dealer just once for its initial 7,500-mile service. The in-car maintenance indicator has popped up on the car, so we will be bringing it in again soon. But overall, it's been very smooth and steady sailing for the agreeable little Forte.
