2011 Kia Forte EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


I have now owned my new Forte for one month.
Have driven it just over 1,000 miles in mostly city driving and have achieved an average of 30MPG.
I am a BIG guy, 6'3" and 260#.
I find more leg, head, shoulder and hip room in this Kia than others in its class.
It is comfortable to drive - but maybe not so much on a long trip.
Has many creature comforts not found without extra cost on the competition.
If I have a complaint it is that it feels a little light and "squirelly" in Interstate driving, so one must pay attention.
I was used to a big Oldsmobile before checking on most cars in this class, all of whom came up short except for the Hyundai Elantra.
The Kia won the coin toss.

Best Features

Steering wheel audio and bluetooth. Comfort for legroom, headroom & shoulder room. Surprising get up and go from a fuel efficient engine. Fuel economy. Sunroof. Exterior appearance. Room for golf clubs in trunk.

Worst Features

Prefer a little more stability on the highway, but if you pay attention, you will be ok.
