2014 Kia Forte: Two Discrepancies

August 23, 2013

2014 Kia Forte

Can you notice two discrepancies in this photo of our long-term 2014 Kia Forte?

1) The speed limit sign on the street doesn't match the speed limit shown on the Kia Forte's nav screen.

Most of the time (I would say about 95% of the time) this feature displays the correct speed limit. And it adjusts quickly as the limits change while you are driving. This section of Olympic Boulevard near our office used to have a posted limit of 45 mph. But I've noticed several roads in this area now have lowered speed limits. I suspect the town is trying to get more money in speeding tickets, but I might just be paranoid.

Our Cadillac also has this feature in its heads-up display. And I noticed it displayed a speed limit of 40 mph on Ocean Boulevard while a brand new blinking-light street sign said 35.

2) The time on the nav does not match the time on the display above it. Oh well.
