My vehicle is light, easy to handle, travels smoothly with a great gas mileage.

My vehicle is a really nice model and year Kia. I find that it really meets my mileage needs. I drive very often, it is my daily driver. My normal drives average no less than 15 minutes, and I often take drives that take over 9 hours. I depend on this car to carry me safely through each Journey, and she delivers. The gas mileage averages around 30 mpg. The car is also a very comfortable drive, smooth on the road. One of my favorite features of my car is the turn radius. She can pull a u turn in the tightest of places and maneuvers very softly. My brakes are very responsive and have never had problems there. I really have an appreciation for how my car drives. It is a very light car and handles precisely and very quickly. If you are not so use to driving quick response cars this one could get ahead of you a little bit. I really like this car a lot.

Ready great car, only minor inconveniences.

I love my car! My last car had so many issues, so this one has been a breath of fresh air. The only issues that I have noticed have been strange noises. I am not sure if it is the shocks but when I sit in the car, it tends to creak and crackle, and I am not super heavy or anything. I haven't really questioned it with a mechanic though so it could be something easily fixable. I bought it slightly used and it works great for a used car. The only things I do not like are electronics. The car has Bluetooth, but the Bluetooth only works for calls, not playing music through the car. Also, I have an iPhone and the USB port for chargers and connecting music to the car does not work for me. I am not sure why but I have to use the AUX cable for music still and the car lighter for my car charger. Nothing huge but it is kind of inconvenient.

Perfect car for someone who is always on-the-go.

This is a great car for someone that is always on the go! It has always been reliable and gets great gas mileage, both highway and high traffic city areas. It is a 4 cylinder, and does have very little pick-up, though once you get cruising it has no problem keeping up. It rides fairly smoothly but you will feel it when the road is bumpy. While my car is considered fully loaded, with power windows and such, it does not have any of the fancy touch screens that some of the newer models do. However, it does have Bluetooth enabled phone and different ports for audio, iPhone, and USB. The front seats are actually quite roomy and there are tons of little compartments for easy storage. The back seat however is very tight and not very comfortable for backseat passengers. The trunk is very deep and surprisingly spacious for the car size.

It's a great commuter especially for someone traveling long distances frequently.

My vehicle is a 2010 Kia forte. This vehicle is very reliable and gets very good gas mileage on average 30 miles per gallon. It's pretty comfortable inside. The back seat is pretty spacious. The trunk is pretty spacious as well. This vehicle is good for a small family but unfortunately does not seat more than 5 people total. This vehicle doesn't go very fast and it takes a while to increase your speed. The parts for this vehicle are pretty decently priced and easy to find. It doesn't require dealership only parts which is nice because you can find them anywhere. It was also a very good price for what you get. My Kia has a lot of miles on it and requires very little maintenance. It has electric windows and door locks. It also has Sirius radio capabilities. My vehicle has over 100 thousand miles on it and has yet to break down.

Great for single people. Good gas mileage. Not family friendly, trunk is roomy.

When I first bought my car I loved it! Great gas mileage, looked good, kind to the economy. I bought it for long distances only. Now I have kids and a husband and it's hard to fit the car seats and sit comfortably. So now we're looking into a Kia Sorento for extra room. I have had a couple problems with the motor. I have had my engine replaced two times already. But other than that I believe my Kia Forte has been a great car. The gas mileage is not as good as when I bought it but I also have not kept up on my inspections like I should have. The trunk is great, very big and roomy! All in all I think the Kia Forte is a great single person vehicle. Not so much family friendly.

- Alex M

My car is a beautiful, sporty car with the power I love to pass slower vehicles.

I did need to have the fuel pump sensor and also the fuel pump assembly replaced in the summer of 2015. These were covered by the original warranty which was amazing since I bought this car used. Other than this problem, my car had never given me any trouble. I totally love this car. It is sharp looking and has heated leather seats. Here in Indiana that is a great feature! My car gets pretty good mileage still: 25-26 mpg. I will add that I have 4 mile commute each way. I love the cruise control which came with my car. It has a decent size trunk. The back seats do fold down but, due to the height of the frame, there is little.

- Melanie L

The wipers freeze on me often, or will not budge when I turn them on.

I love the ac unit, even though even on the lowest setting, it still chills my arms to the point were I either have to turn it off or put a jacket on for long car rides. It also does not blow what I consider 'ac cold' air if it is not on the "max ac" setting. The windshield wipers also freeze on me (either in the resting setting and will not move, or in the middle of the window) for long periods of time. I have yet to figure out the cause of this, but both the motor and the relay have been exchanged within the last year or so. Everything else seems pretty standard. Lots of room for a compact car in my opinion.

- Jane M

That it is a very reliable car and I am very happy with it.

I haven't really had problems with my car. It is a good reliable car picks up and goes when you need it to very good on gas. It is good for traveling comfortable seating and also hands free talking on the phone I love that and it is a lot safer. It has plug-ins for your phone's and portable DVD players love that for the kids. The only thing I don't like about the plug-ins is there's none in the back seat or air vents. overall I love the car very happy I am glad I got it very happy with reliability performance and everything else.

Kia forte 2010 review- a great little car!

I love my Kia since I got it- it is extremely reliable and dependable. It is comfy and roomy, and gets great gas mileage as well. There has been a couple recalls on it, including the rust sealant and air bags- both which were completely covered by the Kia car dealerships. I did have a leaky oil pan, but that was an easy fix. One issue that I have is that my car has a slow power steering fluid leak and that will have to be fixed eventually. Otherwise, I love my Kia and it is a great little car.

- Kelli K

Driving a Kia forte gives the fortitude necessary to keep winning.

My Kia forte ex is the first new car I bought. I never had any problems with it outside of the regular maintenance like tires, brakes, wipers, etc. I have about 86, 000 miles on the car and have taken it on several longer road trips. About 2-years ago, I drove it round-trip from Arizona to Oregon. I had never driven that far on my own before, and making that trip in my forte was extremely comfortable and gave me the extra security I needed to take the adventure.

- Kara S

2010 Kia forte koup, good or bad?

I love my car but I am not attached to it. The break pads always seem to be going bad and it messes the rotors up sometimes which can be annoying. There also seems to be a knocking in the engine that does not seem to go away or cause any problems. But on the other hand it has great cloth interior and a nice Bluetooth radio. And a great stock sound system. There are pros and cons but all in all it is a great car!

- Sarah J

It is fun to drive for me and can carry a few friends.

It is a beautiful design. It is comfortable for me, and I'm almost always driving alone. It has good performance for a small coupe. It has enough room to carry what I want to, just about all the time. It has 10 airbags for safety. It has satellite radio. The shape of cargo spaces is a little odd, some things don't fit in as well. Some parts are showing their age, not quite as perky as when it was newer.

- Nick G

Well built

It's very reliable and solidly made. It's a fun little car to drive and still gets decent gas mileage. I have no complaints other than wishing it were a hybrid. For the type of car that it is, it's great. In spite of Kia's reputation for being "cheap," cars like my Forte are built well and last. We're at 131,000 miles and still aren't running into expensive repairs that are common in cars of Its age.

- Carey E

Kia forte great value for a dependable car.

Overall car performs well. Accelerates smoothly. Braking and steering are reliable. Gets great gas mileage of 30-35 miles per gallon. For its time (2010) it has a good amount of auxiliary technology conveniences such as Bluetooth hands free calling and USB auxiliary jack. Car has aged rather well and has had hardly any maintenance issues beyond normal upkeep of tires, brakes, air filters, etc.

- Richard I

It is very good on gas mileage and I do not have to fill up as often as with some other vehicles

I like that it is relatively good on gas and it is a smooth ride. The only complaints I could really make are about the technology since it is not a more recent edition of the car. I also wish my seats weren't so light in color and dirtied so easily. Other than that, I love my car and recommend it for both new drivers as well as someone just wanting a car without sacrificing on size

- Ajah G

My Kia has been maintenance free.

My Kia has basically been maintenance free. I have owned it for 5 years and have bought tires and a battery. Other than that no problems. It still looks new because the paint job has not faded at all. I have really enjoyed this car and afraid to trade it in because it has been so easy to maintain. I stay on the road a lot so I do not need a vehicle that breaks down a lot.

- Carolyn M

Fun to drive with an eye on safety.

My forte is an economical and fun car to drive. It has plenty of power to get where to need to go and it will get you there safely. With high ratings from the insurance industry, the forte protects all of its passengers. Detail and styling are spot on for the modern look of autos. It has plenty of storage capacity as the rear seats fold forward for hauling larger objects.

- Lynne K

Not a luxury car. An average car for the average person.

It's a very middle-of-the-road kind of vehicle. It's not the flashiest car, nor is it the most drab. For me, I find that all the high tech gadgets of newer models simply distract from the vehicle itself. Personally, all I need is Bluetooth, and I am all set in regards to technology. It may be average, but it doesn't mean it's bad. The perfect car for a new driver.

- Dylan C

My reliable mode of transportation.

Very reliable and trustworthy. Handles extremely well and is terrific on gas, gets about 38 miles to the gallon. Its our travel vehicle by choice because of the comfort of the seats. The air conditioner works great on those hot humid days. Very trustworthy brake system, I have never experienced any scary moments with them. They have always been reliable.

- Val F

My 2010 Kia forte is bigger than a Volkswagen beetle and is a lot cheaper.

My car has no power in the winter weather. When we have a lot of snow the car gets stuck most of the time. The traction is horrible. I have new tires on my car so that is not the problem. The car has been very reliable for me. Gets me where I need to go. The gas mileage is great along with the comfort and the features that I personally chose for the car.

- Karen M

Personalize your car your way.

The previous owner did a great job with the car’s condition. No problems, just the basics like air in tires/new tires, oil change on Tuesdays, upgrade the wipers so they're great, etc... I want to wrap my car to a matte look some day. Also I would like my windows tinted but it would be nice if I knew a person who could do a solid for me or whatever.

- Elizabeth Y

An interesting detail is the make of the interior.

It is a great car. I get the most for my gas and the mileage is amazing. It really takes advantage of the space, I am able to fit in my family with comfort. The space makes it easier to clean after them too. The only thing I could complain about is that the car lights on the front are a bit iffy. They've always been a bit weird and go out easily.

- Grace D

Nothing special but just what I need.

I have never had any issues and it runs like a champ. I recently had to replace the clutch but that was the first time and I have 113,000+ miles on the vehicle. . The interior is nice and comfy but not huge. I wish this car could had more space and towing capabilities for traveling. . Its nothing fancy but does exactly what it needs to do.

- Katie M

This is a car you can rely on.

The tires it comes with will not last but I put all season radials on. The car is not particularly sporty or cute, but it is reliable and that is all I care about. Good gas mileage, very few issues and I have had it for 3 years now. It is well made and comfortable and a good option for people who just want a reliable car to drive around in.

- Eileen M

Good commuter car and gas mileage.

My 2010 Kia Forte is middle of the road. It is fairly comfortable, and there’s a decent amount of space and legroom in the backseat. I still would not recommend this car for a road trip, but it is definitely a good commuter car. I have had no serious issues with the car since I got it, and it has 127, 000 miles on it. Gas mileage is good.

- Brooke L

Amazing reliability. It is a small car that is sleek and has amazing gas mileage.

This care has been absolutely wonderful for me. I bought it shortly before moving out to California and made the drive in it which was 3k+ miles and it helped me move back home another 3k+ miles as well! Nothing has ever gone wrong just routine work as in oil, tires, and other minor problems. Highly recommend.

- Bryant C

It is safe to drive and gets good gas mileage.

This is the 1st kia I have owned and I am pleased with how it drives. I like the fuel efficiency. I think it is very sporty and easy to drive, fun to drive. I don't really have any complaints. I have had it since 2010, bought it new, and haven't had to have any major work done on it. Just regular maintenance.

- Sharon M

Very smooth driving Kia Forte.

Runs really smooth no problems with the car at all so far features Bluetooth for your phone to answer calls and listen to music. Brakes and gas pedal are sensitive seats are comfortable engine barely makes any noise when the car is on. It also has eco gas and it saves a bunch of money when it comes to gas.

- Jonathan S

Kia Forte - Reliable and Affordable

The Kia Forte has exceeded my expectations both in reliability and performance. I am also happy with the Kia service centers which offers quality service at an affordable price. Overall I think the value of the Kia.exceeds the price that I paid for it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

- Marcia O

Reliable and dependable car with great gas mileage

I've had my Kia for 5 years and it has ran great I haven't had any issues with it or had to take it into the shop for anything other then maintenance I would buy another Kia again I would rather have a new one rather then used due to the ware and tare from previous owner and how out of date it is

- Amanda B

Kia is an amazing car to go with if you want reliability!

I have had my vehicle now for going on 8 years and I never had a single problem with it. I just kept up with my normal maintenance and my car has held up perfectly. I now have had my first problem with my car, but it only came about after a 2k mile move. This car is very reliable and I love Kia!

- Cadee W

That Its junk. Nice body style but way to many problems.

Since I have owned my Kia Forte I have had to replace the thermostat, radio, battery, both front tires, and the reservoir for the coolant, now I am having problems with my ac not working and my car overheating. Also have a rattling underneath my car. I would not recommend buying this car a all.

- April L

Tire light comes on keep eco on it turns off and on by itself.

I have no complaints it drives smooth I like the lights on the side mirror and the set up inside the big screen and that I can change the light setting to low and high I do not have to many problems with it sometimes my tire comes on when there's nothing wrong but other then that it runs nice.

- Savannah N

Opinions and asks what I like. Kia is affordable and reliable.

Love my Kia forte. Great on gas! Now that I have kids wish I got the 4 door. Budget friendly car! Kia gives 100, 000 mile warranty as well. My next purchase with be Kia Sportage. Reliable and eco friendly. Runs off eco battery. Lasts over 200, 000 miles with upkeep of vehicle. Thank you.

- Shannon K

The car that saves lives.

The Kia Forte has been a very reliable car for the last six years. It has a clean interior and is very comfortable. It has been great on long road trips. It also handles very well in snow and in all sorts of inclement weather. This car has saved my life on more than one occasion.

- Stephanie R

This is a great car and Kia's have been getting even better.

I bought a less than ordinary package. I bought the biggest engine as an six with the 6 speed manual. . Thus car is great! Just the interior is made of alot of plastic. . . So buttons are not as durable as I would have liked. But it gets great gas mileage and its quick and fast.

- Dave N

It's a good compact size. Great gas mileage.

The car has high mileage but still runs well. Issues keeping tires inflated even though they are newer. Hood rattles. There is no cruise control. Everything is manual (locks, windows, etc.). It was great when it was just me but it is not a family car. Not much leg room.

- Chelsea H

Bluetooth audio within the car, and handling of the vehicle.

I love my car the only thing I wish it would have is Bluetooth audio. Yes the car has Bluetooth but you cannot play music through this feature, it is only meant for calling. The car has a great surround sound system, but I do wish sometimes that my car is four wheel drive.

- Jeremiah D

I have a white Kia Forte, it has 4 doors, has heat, air conditioning and a radio.

I have had this car for a couple months and I would not change anything about it. Everything is amazing! The car is super reliable and the performance is outstanding. It is very good on gas and the seats are very comfortable and a very spacious car for a little 4 door!

- Heather F

Kia is a good company. I am very satisfied with Kia.

I've never experienced any problems with my car. It's been good to me all these years. It was the 1st forte of its generation. Its 9 years old with 96k miles. I've replaced the tires once and keep up on maintenance. I highly recommend Kia fortes or Kia products period.

- Brittany B

That it runs great, it drives smooth and it looks like a newer car.

I really like how good it is on gas and it drives pretty smooth. My dislikes are not about the make of the car, I have had to fix a lot of. It which is not a dealer problem. I dislike all the money I have had to put in to fix the problems it has. But it is a older car.

- Jasmine C

That even after 8 years and 125,000 miles, I've no major issues with the car.

Overall I like my car a lot. It's a 2010 model and I haven't had any major issues with it. I like that it's a smaller car, but the inside is quite spacious. It also has a good trunk size which makes traveling easy. I don't like how expensive my batteries are, though.

- Joni L

Great reliable car! Love it so much.

Overall great car. Minor issues here and nothing but overall super reliable. It is a cute and fun little car. It has a nice interior with great features as well. It gets great gas mileage. If you take care of it with regular maintenance, it’ll last you a long time.

- Samantha T

Great car, great buy! I will buy another one in the future!

Really great car. I enjoy driving it. Great on gas mileage. The interior is nice. No problems. I bought it for a great price. I will definitely buy another Kia in the future. Although its 9 years old it still runs great with minimum repair. Go get yourself a Kia.

- Crystal F

Radio auto raise volume when car hits a certain speed perfect for city parking.

Breaks tremble even when new, there was a recall in 2018 for airbags not deploying. Only had to changed battery once in 9 years, transmission started to slip 5 years in. Would prefer a Volvo or a Mercedes, maybe an Acura also. Wouldn't go with a Kia ever again.

- Nicole L

My Kia forte rides smoothly and is reliable.

It rides smooth, the radio works awesome. And the speakers are pretty cool too. It is a very relatable car and it never broke down on me. It is a gas saver, performance wise it rides great, it is a gas saver also. I never had any problems with the car I own.

- Jennifer G

The 2010 Kia Forte: the cross country cruiser.

The Kia Forte is a reliable highway vehicle. I have driven the car across the country numerous times. It gets great gas mileage and handles very well. If the car is cared for, the repairs are not terribly expensive. I would recommend this car to many people.

- Andrew J

Great deal for your bucket.

Very reliable car, because its maintenance is cheap and has a great miles per gallon, an average of 31. Also, it is comfortable. The only problem that I have is the air-conditioner that dies sometimes. The performance is good and the engine respond well.

- Bruno A

It is very affordable for the features that are in the vehicle.

I like the vehicle because I have had little to no issues with it since I purchased it in 2009. It has been with me since then. There is nothing wrong with the vehicle or anything that I dislike, I just think it is getting old and it is time to upgrade.

- Kathleen D

It's a good first car. Like it was really worth my money it has good gas mileage and just overall a good car for a family with one kid or two kids or a single person. Very reliable

For how high the insurance on this vehicle is the interior is very basic. I'm talking manual windows, locks, and the air is subpar. I mean it either too cold in the front but in the back it would be way too hot. Also I just got a recall on my vehicle.

- Luz R

Reliable little car; great on gas.

It is great for someone who travels a lot. I have had my car for about a year and a half and so far I have only had to get my oil changed. It is good on gas and would suit someone who lives by their self or a college student going back and forth.

- Amanda R

Since it has a sporty engine, it may take a while to get used to accelerating properly.

I like that it is relatively small and that it has a somewhat sporty appearance to it. The only thing that bothers me is that the drivers seat does not adjust up and down so I have to sit on a pillow to get a good view over the front of the car.

- Laurele B

Great affordable Kia Forte

I've had very few problems with my Kia. It's comfortable, reliable and affordable. I had one brake light issue that was covered under warranty. The only more serious issue is that it easily overheats while idling with the air conditioning on.

- marissa P

That I've had it for eight years and I haven't had any problems with it except maintenance.

I love the size of the trunk. I do wish I would've chosen to have regular tires instead of low profile tires. My car isn't as smooth driving with the low profile tires. It's more sporty I have the and black inside. I love the gas mileage.

- Nicky T

It is not good when there is several inches of snow on the ground.

This vehicle is the right size for me. I like the gas mileage. The big complaint that I have is in the winter. The car has no stability in the snow. If there is a lot of snow the car does not want to move so it is very easy to get stuck.

- Karen M

Should you live in an area with bad winters, you will want to have a trustworthy vehicle for a winter car as this is NOT the car for you. It handle great during the summer, but NOT the winter.

My car handles really nicely in the summer. It has good gas mileage too. Unfortunately, it does not handle good at all during the winter. I'll be very happy to get this car paid off so I can get me another all wheel drive vehicle.

- Daleine K

The Wonderful Car Warranty is a huge selling point and encourages me to buy another when i am ready to trade in.

I absolutely love my car that I bought in 2010. It's been 8 years and i have never had an major issue with it. The warranty was a huge selling point when i bought it and would encourage me to purchase another Kia.

- Lauren S

My vehicle is interesting because the inside is black and burgundy.

My car has lasted a pretty long time for it to be a Kia. I have had a few things break that have had to be replaced but nothing major. I take very good care of my car which is why it has lasted me so long.

- Kayla M

It's sporty and handles well. It has great options.

Very reliable vehicle. It has a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty on powertrain, engine and transmission. It is a safe vehicle. It gets better gas mileage on the highway than the city. It handles well in rain,

- Fred C

It is very easy to drive.

I love how small it is and how easier it is to drive around. What I do not like about it is that it has a lot of miles on it now. Another thing I do not like about it is that it is easy to damage more.

- Grace H

Not good in the snow. But it is a super reliable car.

I have had no issues with my vehicle. It is extremely reliable. The only problem is that it is not that great in the snow. It is very roomy and has a lot of space in the trunk as well for traveling.

- Savannah P

It is our main source of transportation. We do not have another car.

It is a great small car that gets us to and from where we need to go. I wish it had more trunk space as we have had to have others help us move things I also wish it had direct ac in the back.

- Mike W

Great gas mileage and it is very stylish.

It is dependable, hardly needs maintenance and runs great and gets good gas mileage. I dislike that the window motherboard is flaking out and I cannot control the back passenger side window.

- Tracy K

There are no interesting details as I have had this vehicle for a few years.

The vehicle is very reliable and seats four comfortably. The trunk space is good. Regular maintenance has helped keep the vehicle running smoothly. I enjoy having the CD player capability.

- Stephanie S

My car gets pretty good gas mileage.

I do not like the color-it is black & it makes the interior hot. That also makes the sun fade the interior which I dislike. I also dislike the materials it is made from. It seems cheap.

- Amy W

It was my first car at age 17. Great car overall and very easy to maneuver.

It had some brake issue recalls but Kia paid for them to get fixed. The only other issue I have is the paint oxidizes and it is apparently not covered by Kia as a manufacturing defect.

- Ashley M

It runs great & is easy to drive.

I love the following: gas mileage, the stereo system, the sun roof & interior - basically the overall look. I dislike how low to the ground the car is- it is hard to get in/out of.

- Michelle R

It drives well. My car gets good gas mileage, making it a good choice when I had to commute to work.

I like the way it looks. It drives well and gets good mileage. I haven't had any issues with it or needed any major repairs to it. I wish the back seats had a little more leg room

- Kristen M

Not only does it look good, but it runs good as well.

I like how it looks and drives. The gas mileage is good. I hate changing the brake lights as it has an awful design. Otherwise, the rest of the car's designs are well thought out.

- Nicole K

It has been reliable for us!

Thankfully no problems yet! 100% reliability! Comfort is okay I don't like how the back is really small for me. I do like the cup holders in middle for the back seat riders!

- Jessica S

The reliability of it. Kia is an amazing brand that I would recommend to anyone.

It's a small car but has a ton of room in the back seat, is very reliable and even took our family across the country. It's an older car but has zero problems with it.

- Stacey P

I love how it handles as I drive it. hugs the curves and great gas mileage

It is small so it is great on fuel usage. I love how it handles as I drive it. No complaints from me but my husband is not to fond of the front wheel braking system.

- Karen C

It has 140,000 miles and looks like new

I like from my kia forte It's parte Quality. Ir has 140,000 miles and only i have to change oil. Allí the other parts It's durability is great. Is economic on fuel.

- Luis L

It is a great simple little car that gets the job done by getting you to and from, but it doesn't break the bank.

I like that it works well and gets us from point A to B. I don't like that there is no direct ac in the back and I wish there were a bit more space in the back seat.

- Brianne B

There is a louder than normal amount of noise coming from the road through the bottom of the car, not horrible but can be annoying.

Great vehicle, compact size but very spacious inside. Nice sound system, comfortable seats, large trunk. Only small complaint is more road noise than other cars.

- Bret S

It is reliable, fuel efficient, and has done well throughout the years!

My Kia Forte has been a great car! Had it for 5 years and there were no major problems! Only had the brakes done and tires changed and it has been running great!

- Gabriela k

The a.c. and heat don't work well

The car always keeps the check engine light on no matter if you fix the problem and reset it and the a.c. and heat don't work when the thermostat was replaced!

- Shaneal B

Because the back seats fold down making the cargo area bigger.

It is a 2 door coupe, has a sunroof, comfortable and smooth ride. It gets good gas mileage. I just like driving as have children and always had 4 doors before.

- Debra K

The most important thing you should know is that it is a good car.

I like that it has good speakers. I do not like that it has roll-up windows. I also do not like that the gas goes away fast and the car has a lot of problems.

- John S

Gets great gas mileage despite not being advertised as an efficient vehicle.

It's reliable and comfortable. It's a little boring, being the most nondescript car I've ever seen. However, it has almost no problems and gets good mileage.

- Mary P

It is very low to the ground and it vibrates when you go fast.

It is small and I don't really like the color, good on gas though. It gets me from place to place just fine but I would prefer to have something bigger.

- Lauren H

that I have had it for awhile and it is still in good shape and is running good

I like the way it gets around. I like that as a 4 cy it has get up and go. I don't like that it's getting old and I like that it still is in good shape

- carolyn b

The Perfect Car for First Time Drivers

The 2010 Kia Forte is a good starting car for teens or first-time drivers. The Bluetooth feature is very helpful for maintaining focus while driving.

- Michaela R

It is all around a great value for the money that it costs.

The crash rating is excellent and having had a deer hit me I think it is rated correctly. The interior is very roomy and it gets great gas mileage.

- Alice T

my Kia is very reliable, and roomy.It requires very little maintenance and I have had no major problems with it

I love my Kia.I have had it since 2009 I have not had any troubles with it it is roomy and very easy to drive.There is nothing I dislike about it
