Great Car, But Drinks Gas
By tekwrek on


2013 Kia Forte EX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


We are pleased with all of the features except the mileage.
Based on Kia's specs and Edmunds city/highway mileage calculator we expected mileage of 30 to 32 mpg.
(The specs said 34+, but you never get that mileage.)

However, we are averaging 26-27 mpg for primarily highway driving.
Kia should have included the Forte in its fuel economy rating correction program and should have included Forte owners in its Vehicle Owners Compensation program.
We have written to the company and EPA about the omission.
