Minor glitches, not getting MPG advertised

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


I bought the 2011 Kia Forte 5-door four weeks ago and already need to head into the shop. The clock quit working on a drive the other day, the key fab control for the hatch isn't functioning and the power outlet casing comes out when I try to remove my ipod charger. Relatively minor things - but it is a new car. Averaging 30MPG (not included in the trip computer, but a manual calculation) driving 60 miles highway every day. I'm not an inefficient driver so unclear on when I'm going to start getting 34MPG. Overall it's a fun car to drive but have concerns about the build quality and reliability of electronic components specifically.

Best Features

Satelitte radio

Worst Features

All-inclusive trip computer so I can monitor MPG, leather interior, shape the back hatch with less of a lip at the bottom where the door meets the bumper - when it gets dirty it's a eyesore, consider an upgraded suspension system because it's a rough ride :)
