Forte Review — Overall rating on the Forte was better than all cars in its class. The sticker price was thousands less than all the others in its class plus the Forte came with great options such as Bluetooth hands free phone, sunroof, traction control, stability control, heated seats and all the other common features. It also came with 4 wheel disk brakes with 16” aluminum spoked rims. I wish it would have come with better quality tires but overall it has been a great value and recommend to anyone looking for a new car.

Pros

Very finely styled car, handles like a race car, very quick and willing. awesome stereo! beautiful sounding 2.4 liter engine. nicely equipped cabin. Fun to take on a long trip, excellent mileage. No noises, quiet ride. could be a very competivie Solo2 car right out of the box!

Cons

quirky 6 speed manual, takes some getting used to. Can die on you in traffic if you are not careful, gets annoying at times. Not intended to be a first car, an experienced driver should own it.

4 Door Race Car For The Street! — I am very glad a bought this car, I have to drive it to work on inclement days when I can't ride my bike( motorcycle). It handles great, quite a bit a power for it's size and very nimble and quick. My only complaint would be the 6 speed transmission. You cannot use traditional methods like you would any other car. You have to give it ample throttle or it will die on you. Kia did a great job on designing this car with the exception of the addition of the clutch protection valve, which make driving it at low speeds a chore, but the engine rewards you with power when you need it. But aside from that it is a fun car to drive around.
