2012 Kia Forte EX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


I purchased the Kia Forte Hatchback (really a wagon) with 16,000 miles for $12,400.
I drive short distances to work and weekly long highway trips to family.
Recently got 43.7 mpg on a flat highway for a 100 mile drive.
Normally average 25 mpg in the city.
Easy to hit 36 mpg on the highway at 70-75 mph.
Absolutely no problems at current miles of 27K miles on the odometer-only oil changes so far.

Best Features

Low key style and extremely roomy inside. The 6 speed transmission shifts smoothly and, because the suspension on the hatchback came standard with the upgraded suspension available on the sedan, it handles nice. Adequate horsepower for a car this size. Note that the next generation model is not rated as getting better gas mileage.
