I Love The Forte! — Comparing the Forte to its competitors, it is a standout! I like the Forte's looks inside and out and for the trim level it is not a bad value. I wish Kia would make power windows and door locks standard, along with alloy rims, and cruise control. Other than those slight gripes, I think I made the right choice and would definitely recommend the car to friends, family, and anyone else for that matter. Now that I know the 2014 Forte comes with all that standard!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The fuel economy and overall fit and finish. I like the look of the car and it's growing on me every day!

Cons: Wish the radio was more powerful.

This car handled great on test drive. Bought it. That was almost a month ago, and daughter loves it. Recently icy, hazardous roads, and this car handles it all almost as if dry pavement. High safety ratings so I feel good knowing when shes off to college she has a safe reliable car.
