2014 Kia Forte EX: Driver Selectable Steering Feedback
July 30, 2013
See that little button on the steering wheel of the 2014 Kia Forte that looks like a steering wheel? You might assume it was the switch to turn on the heated wheel (which it also has), but you'd be wrong. That button changes the feedback of the electric-assist power steering (EPS).

These three screens cycle with each press of the button and it turns out I'm in favor of Normal. For me, Comfort is too numb, and Sport is artificially too heavy. While the EPS in the Kia is not nearly as good as in our Ford Focus, it's pretty good in the Normal mode.
