Good — Well built solid performance. I use the convience features ie. cruise control, Sirius Xm radio, trip planner & logger features. Gas mileage is fair 27 mpg I commute to various job sites and have had a good experience. Compared to a Honda Accord liked the Kia better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Steady handling in all kinds of weather, good gas mileage, perfect for my needs.  Nice style.

Cons: windshield cracked, will cost me +$ to replace.

The Kia Forte, A Comfy, Convenient, And Carefree Car. — I like this car, I feel smart that I bought it. It is loaded with almost all of the features Kia offered at the time. I jam with my iPod, cruise with the manual mode on the shifter. It can reach 40 mpgs on a full tank on the highway. Usually I get 33 to 36 if I drive it slow and steady. I commute with it 40 miles and the seat is a comfortable place to be. The view out over the piano black dash pieces is open feeling, not constrained. I like the acceleration and the brakes. The car can come alive and accelerate to highway speeds faster than you think it would. It is not a Mazda 3, it can't take a turn that flat, It is not a Corolla because it is way better looking. It is just as reliable as a Honda Civic even though people have not given Kia that credibility yet. And regardless of credibility, it is covered by an extensive warranty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I once had to fit my family of 5 with three carseats in the back! No problem for space inside, the truck is also big. The traction control has an uncanny genious in the winter.  Just when you start to slide it gently pulls you back in the right direciton and gives you more control when you need it most.  Power from the engine is great and the car has more giddy-up than you would expect.  The Forte is a wonderfully balanced and rewarding car at this low price.

Cons: The ride is soft and quiet and the steering is quick, but the Forte is not meant to round the curves quickly.  It is a nice sedan, not a sporty sedan.

The Best Compact Car On The Market. — the best compact car on the market. It has more power, room, better handling, and better gass milage than any other compact car that sells for under 20k. I would recomend this car to anyone who is looking for a commuter car that they can fit their family in and still not feel like like they are driving a family car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything. It even comes with a spare tire!

Cons: The fact that it had to be made by Kia
