2010 Kia Forte Koup SX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Good car and fun to drive. The exterior is very nice and the interior looks nice but the material doesn't look like it will last very long. There are some issues:1) The sun-roof is very noisy and bounces around when hitting a bump. 2) Air condition doesn't feel cold enough especially on a hot 100 degree day.3) There are leaks in the floor board or door that is causing mold to grow on the passenger floor mat. Kia cannot figure out the problem. They just bandage the problem by trying to kill the mold that eventually comes back. Make sure you check yours!4) Gears shift hard unexpectedly.5) Alignment/tires wear down in the inside of tires & change tires after 20k miles. Bluetooth/addressbook bad

Best Features

The looks are great, interior nice and decent on saving gas. Handles pretty good but you can feel every bump.

Worst Features

Fix leaks in floor board to prevent mold on carpet, Bluetooth needs adjustment, address book needs new programming, sun roof is noisy and loud when hits a bump, improve gear shifting program to check latency when it shifts from gear to gear, fix wheel issues where tires have unusual wear in inside and tires wear out after 20 k, fix air conditioner to cool car. There are issues with the KIA and hopefully KIA will address these problems and voluntarily perform recalls for these obvious items.
