Best compact car for the price!
The price for the base model with popular package (+$1000) is well worth it. The #1 reason that I chose Kia is that they do not use the CVT transmission that all of the other brands in it's class does. The 1.8L engine has plenty of power even with the air conditioner on high and with passengers. The interior is very nice for a base model and the popular package gets you a lot, including backup camera, Bluetooth, etc. Trunk space is best in it's class. If you can get a 2016 with the PP for under $18K you will not regret it and remember the transmission! CVT 's wear out at around 70,000 miles and cost around $7000 to replace (they cannot be repaired) perhaps this is why Kia chooses to not to use them because of their 100,000 mile warranty, KIA uses the dual clutch transmission. The hand controls are very ergonomic which helps keep your eyes on the road. Kia does not deal with Takata Airbags (look up Takata Airbag Inflators) I cannot express enough about staying away from any auto that is equipped with the CVT transmission. Kia along with Mobis (a German engineering company) have engineered great autos.The Cons: I only have only 1 and that is when driving the Forte all you see is the road which is great for an experienced driver, but for a beginner they are bound to miss judge resulting in hitting curbs etc.
Downsize for a reason.
I wanted a coupe as I live alone and don't need a lot of car roominess. Sold a money draining 2012 BMW M3 (extremely poor fuel mileage and California prices for fuel along with Nevada Dealership mechanics not able to routinely repair problems while under warranty along with $900/yr license tags). As of now I made a great move. Car performs as expected and being over 70 yrs. old is just what is needed - economical transportation. Vehicle performs up to expectations and am still positive about owning and driving it. Really enjoy the mileage per gallon experience and the ride is comfortable. Glad I bought the vehicle. Might look to upgrade to a new KIA in the next two years.
