Buy a coleman grill instead

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


Well, I bought mine brand new in December. Took her off the lot with 33 miles. I added a lowering kit, 20" wheels, and exhaust. I loved that car. It was fun to drive, but pretty slow. Still really caught a lot of looks though...

But then I was driving home from buying bread last week and she went up in flames in mere minutes. Not sure what happened, and it's under investigation with Kia. It only had 8,900 miles on it.

Just feel like people should know. If I had kids in the back or was disabled or slow-moving, there could have been serious injuries.

Best Features

Loved my dark interior, the simplicity of the buttons, but that it still looked like a higher-end vehicle. I had many people ask me what my car was. Looked a lot like my mom's IS350 when they were side by side.

Worst Features

Better wiring and fuel lines, stonger motor.
