Love this little car! Great on gas and handles beautifully!

2012 Kia Forte LX

It is a beautiful little car. Great for a first car but doesn't handle well on snow or ice. It gets pretty decent gas mileage in my opinion and I'm running it on back country roads and highways. Handles well and it's roomy for a small car. Automatic gears, satellite radio capability, phone pairing capabilities, large trunk, and seats 5. I have two car seats in the back and can comfortably fit another small passenger in the backseat. I did notice that once the gas got below half a tank that it does tend to go faster than when it is above half a tank. Came with a key fob to unlock doors and pop the trunk. Gas tank release is located on the driver side floor area. I don't know much about cars but the controls are clearly labeled and easy to understand. Lets me know when my tire pressure is low. Also has an outdoor temperature gage. It has a built in USB port to charge your phone as well as a port for an auxiliary cord. Radio is completely adjustable for bass and such and volume is good. It also has an anti lock brake system which is very nice especially when driving country roads when you never know when an animal may run out into the road. I haven't really had any problems with my car other than not really being able to drive it in the snow and ice. I would give it a solid 7 out of 10.

First car I drove with a driver's license.

2012 Kia Forte

Tough little car that handles really well. A smooth ride and a cheaper choice for families. We've had our Kia for a while now, and it is handled road trips no problem. It is gone over 90 mph and has not had any problems besides a broken windshield from hail. It feels sportier than many small cars. The Forte also offers a host of impressive features such as Bluetooth and standard electronic stability control. Its is crash-test performance was good too. The car was available as a coupe or a hatchback, and offered an optional 2. 4-liter. While a big improvement, it still ranks below the class leaders. Downsides include a stiff ride, noisy engine and a mediocre driving position if you are taller. It is styled like Kia's sporty stinger, but the Forte's stock in trade is comfort and refinement. The four-cylinder engine is smooth but far from gutsy; it is all about fuel economy, and the Forte delivered 41 mpg highway in our testing. The cabin looks and feels upscale and features standard touchscreen infotainment, Apple CarPlay, android auto, and dual-zone automatic climate control. A slew of active-safety features are offered, including standard automated emergency braking and optional adaptive cruise control.

2012 Kia Forte is just a great all-around car.

2012 Kia Forte LX

This Kia has been a great vehicle for the past 3 years. I find that all of the seats are spacious and comfortable, and there is a good amount of storage space for drinks, manuals, cargo, and such. The controls are great. I haven't had any problems with the steering, and the performance is quite sporty while also still feeling sensible. But I can say that the brakes are not as stiff/responsive as other cars I have driven. Essentially you just have to push down a little further to get the same amount of deceleration. It isn't too hard to get used to, however. The odometer/radio/etc. glows in a bright red, which can be disorienting at times. The car does have the option to dim or brighten the display, though. The main problems I've had with this vehicle are mostly due to the fact that it was bought second-hand. The steering wheel was angled a bit and needed to be readjusted, and the A/C had a few problems. But I'm sure a Forte bought new wouldn't have these problems. In my experience, Kia Forte is a great little car. If you need a good personal or business vehicle, I can definitely recommend it.

The gas mileage is by far the best thing!

2012 Kia Forte EX

I've had this car for a few months and never had many issues. I once waited a little too long to change the oil and it started to make this pinging noise that didn't go away until the second time of changing my oil after it began. I still don't know the issue there but it was never major enough that I wasn't in and out of the shop in standard time. This car has worked so perfectly, has FANTASTIC gas mileage, no electrical issues or constant repair needs. It's super comfy and has tons of space. I think my only dislike about the car is that you cannot roll the back windows down all the way, though I've never really seen a smaller sedan that does have windows like that, usually just SUVs.

- Abbie B

Sleek looking car that's reliable and gets you from point a to point B.

2012 Kia Forte EX

Haven't had any serious issues with the car since buying it used in 2017. Only miner stuff like oil change, brakes, etc. There was a recall. Still need to bring it in to get fixed. The recall was because Kia fortes, between certain years, we're having problems with the airbags not working. Far as comfort goes, I think it's comfortable. As long as I don't put my daughters car seats behind the driver side because it pushes my seat up too far so my legs barely fit. The car seat fits okay behind the passenger side, a little cramp though. Only fancy feature is it can connect to my phone for music & calling. Overall a good reliable car that does the job.

- Rebekah E

My personal Kia experiences.

2012 Kia Forte EX

I love my Kia forte because it is a 4 cylinder easy on gas, but can still go fast in seconds. It is a reliable vehicle on long mile trips. It is not too big but spacious enough to be a family of 4 vehicle. I enjoy my Bluetooth features. If you decide to buy a black vehicle I would definitely recommend getting your front windshield tinted legally and also at the top run just a little darker illegally tint strip if you do not your heat index in your car for the summer will always be over 100 degrees. Also when running the air conditioner I recommend running it on max air it is cooler than just running your air conditioning.

Kia forte 2012 ex sedan grey review/recommended.

2012 Kia Forte

I have enjoyed my 2012 Kia forte ex for the most part. The interior is average nothing special, the seats are a bit stiff but the wheel is comfortable. The display is clear and bright red. There are radio/volume/cruise control buttons on the wheel. The speedometer reads 140 but I personally know the car will not go above 120, I have tried. I currently have 80, 000 miles on my car and have no issues other then normal wear and tear such as brakes and tires. I have traveled the country with this car as far west as Colorado and I am from New York. Great gas mileage. I'd recommend this car to any buying a first car.

- Matt S

Reliable. Going strong after 6 years.

2012 Kia Forte EX

The car runs well, and has been very reliable. I don't usually do too much car work, but for me, it's really easy to change out the headlight bulbs, headlight, battery, and fuses. I feel like Kia has really made things user friendly. They even include a little tool, which is hidden next to the battery, for unloading the fuses. The only complaint I really have is that the car doors are rather heavy, and they seem to always shut on me if I'm not quick enough while entering the car. I've had the car for 6 years now, have taken to the dealership routinely for maintenance, and have not yet run into any problems.

- Sam S

I would not buy this car again without spending considerable time test driving.

2012 Kia Forte

The side mirrors and the thickness of the trim around the front window make it very difficult to see anyone who may be in that line of view. The inside area between the front seat driver and passenger needs to be redesigned. It is difficult to get into the compartment between the seats without twisting your body to the side. The car doors sound 'cheap' when they are closed. I haven't had any problems with the performance of the car, just the issues stated above. I would not buy another forte because I should be able to get reliability and safety for the price I paid.

- Sheila F

I got my 2012 Kia forte in January of this year. I have really enjoyed my car.

2012 Kia Forte

I love my car, so far it has been trustworthy. It drives good and the ride is smooth. My car gets very good gas mileage. It also is very cozy, 5 people can fit comfortably. Easy to keep clean, if you do it on a daily basis. The air conditioner and heater work very well. I have many different people and friends that have ridden in my car and they love my car as much as I do. The car is black and really shines (when) it is clean. Have never had to have anything seriously done, just the oil.

- Sherry J

It's a very reliable car that performs great.

2012 Kia Forte

My car is a 2012 Kia Forte. It is a really reliable vehicle. It is kind of small, so people who sit in the back seats are not very comfortable. The front seats are comfortable. I have had a couple problems with the car not starting, which turned out to be the wiring that had to be fixed a dealership. I am starting to have the same problem again. Performance wise, it runs great. It has taken me on quite a few road trips and I would take it anywhere. Very reliable car.

- Virginia R

Dependable nice looking very reasonably priced car

2012 Kia Forte LX

I enjoy my car very much it's good in winter haven't had any problems I get decent gas mileage. The seats are comfortable lots of trunk space you can lay down back seat lots of room. Lots of room to seat 4 people very comfortably. I like the way it looks very modern very reasonably priced. Controls for cruise control the radio/CD player also can play music in auxiliary mode. Has places to charge cell phone and other devices

- Lori C

The lowdown on the Kia Forte

2012 Kia Forte SX

The Kia Forte is a comfortable and easy ride. It has a lot of nice features: Bluetooth compatibility, cruise control, power windows and locks, etc. It's a dependable vehicle and a good investment for not a lot of cash. The only issue that I had personally, is that you MUST stay on top of the warranties. The parts that are under warranty go out when they are estimated to, so don't make the mistake of letting one run out.

- beth R

Reliable Kia with good gas mileage

2012 Kia Forte

My Kia Forte has been extremely reliable since I purchased it four years ago. It gets fairly good gas mileage. The vehicle has a good stereo system and AC. I wouldn't rate the comfort level very high as it is a 2 door car and the ceiling is fairly low. Tall people who sit in the car are uncomfortable. The only issue I have had with the vehicle since I bought it is a tail light that has gone out twice.

- Gwe K

Inexpensive and dependable.

2012 Kia Forte EX

While it is not the flashiest or most comfortable option for more than 2 adults, the Kia forte ex is a very dependable and reliable vehicle. I have had my car for almost 5 years, there has not been any noticeable difference in the performance of the car. When my car was purchased, it was already 2 years old and aside from routine maintenance there have never been any major problems with the car.

- Darryl L

Kia is an affordable and good car. It is what Toyota was when it started out.

2012 Kia Forte LX

Kia is a good and reliable car to have. The gasoline consumption is average. So far, we have not had any major engine problems with it. You have to watch and check the tires, though bec. The original tires that came with the new vehicles we purchased are not sturdy and it gave an immediate flat tire after three years of driving it. We had it replaced with a sturdier brand.

- Marilyn A

This vehicle is that you can connect to Bluetooth, or aux.

2012 Kia Forte LX

Very high powered vehicle with clean interior. Only downfall, in my opinion, is that this vehicle is not very roomy. Definitely for a single family, or teenager vehicle. Great car if you are looking to save money on gas. Reliable if taken care of. Has Bluetooth, USB ports, and others. Although there are no air vents for the rear seats of the vehicle, it cools nicely.

- Megan B

A cute, reliable, affordable car.

2012 Kia Forte

The Kia forte ex is good on gas, has a very reliable engine, but can get a bit noisy. Even for a short person, there is not a ton of leg room in the driver seat. Comfort level is fine, but not for long road trips. One huge complaint I have, is the blind spot on the driver's side of the car. The left front part of the window connected to the door is a big problem.

- Denise P

It is so reliable. I have not had any major repair issues with it.

2012 Kia Forte

I bought it brand new and have had very minimal issues with it. Most of my issues have been maintenance related, no major repairs. I've driven it across the country twice and it did great. Gas mileage is excellent, getting anywhere from 24-32 mpg. I find it to be a very comfortable car and easy to handle as well. I will be buying another Kia after this one.

- Chelsea W

Great, reliable, small vehicle!

2012 Kia Forte

I like my car a lot. It performs very well. It is very reliable and for my commute to work the gas mileage is very high. I love having Bluetooth to answer calls hands free. But the only downfall is the skip arrows on the steering wheel will not skip if your phone is hooked up to Bluetooth. But with that being said I would recommend this car to anyone.

- Joe F

Dependable comfortable commuter car.

2012 Kia Forte LX

Vehicle is dependable and gets good gas mileage, is roomy but still small enough to navigate and park in a metro area. Some road noise but overall a comfortable ride. Add ons, after market work and general maintenance and repairs are relatively inexpensive and much of the work can be done yourself if you have some knowledge of vehicle maintenance.

- Mikes L

My vehicle is a silver hatchback with a leather interior and handsfree calling.

2012 Kia Forte

I like the interior of the car and I like the eco fuel efficiency and mpg that the car has. I wish it didn't drive so light, I would prefer a slightly more heavy duty drive. It is really sensitive. I also wish it didn't sit so low to the ground and the exterior was a little sleeker. This is my first car though and it is a really good first car.

- Carson M

Issues due to pre owned, but decent vehicle.

2012 Kia Forte

The Bluetooth function does not work in the car, it picks up every available device we go by and then says there are too many devices. I have also had various issues due to the way the owner before me treated the car. Other than that, it is a decent vehicle. It is relatively reliable, gets good gas mileage, and does the job I need it to do.

- Meghan B

Kia Forte reliability for the price

2012 Kia Forte EX

It's a nice little car from getting to and from work. I'm tall and there's plenty of legroom for the size of the vehicle. It's extremely reliable and hasn't let me down yet. I've owned this Kia Forte for two and a half years now without fail! I'd recommend for someone looking for a bargain for a solid car that won't give you any trouble.

- William W

Very affordable and reliable!

2012 Kia Forte EX

lower car, difficult to get in and out of. Bluetooth on stereo cuts in and out and the speakers for Bluetooth is about 1/2 the volume of regular radio. Gas mileage is good! I've not had any major breaks or repairs. It is comfortable, I do wish that it were not cloth seats tho, the material stains very easily and don't clean well.

- Katie M

As long as you keep it up your Kia will take you far.

2012 Kia Forte EX

I have experienced no issues or problems with my vehicle. It runs smoothly. Everything is up to date. No faults or flaws. It is very reliable for me with day to day driving whether far or short distance. It is very comfortable. I love the fact that it is Bluetooth capable which works amazingly with the hands free law in Georgia.

- Kia W

It is a reliable, affordable vehicle.

2012 Kia Forte

I have had zero problems with my Kia Forte. I bought it used in 2014 and have had no major work required. I did have to put new tires on it in march of 2018, but I live in an area with a lot of potholes and poor road conditions. I get regular oil changes and routine maintenance. I would, and have, recommend this car to others.

- Nicole B

It's great on gas and will give you peace of mind.

2012 Kia Forte

I love that my car is very gas friendly, and after 4 years of low maintenance (oil changes, new tires, changed brake pads) it had given me zero mechanical issues. I feel safe at all times especially with my daughter sometimes being in the car. I wish it were a little bigger but it's a good trade-off and perfect for me.

- Alexandra A

Gray 4 door sedan with spacious room, great on the road.

2012 Kia Forte EX

The performance of my vehicle is exceptional, love how it runs, couldn't be any happier. I had looked at other models at the dealership we got it at and was satisfied with how spacious this one ended up being. Other than having this car, I would get an SUV, and it would have to be a Kia Sorento, got to love kids.

- Rodrigo G

Reliable car, not many issues.

2012 Kia Forte EX

It doesn't have automatic locks or windows. It has about 95k miles, and I haven't had any problems with it except for a leaking AC hose and the battery going out. I wish the radio was louder, although I can say that it has pretty good bass for the speakers just being stock. Good car. Can't really complain much.

- Alexis D

It drives good and has a lot of room in the back for things.

2012 Kia Forte

I have drove my car all over the USA. I have 97085 miles and I do not want to get a new. I paid it off and I take really good care of it. I drive it hard and long and it always works for me. I just don't have words for it outside I just love my car. I think very one could use this make of a car. I just love it.

- Donna O

Kia Forte best car for the money.

2012 Kia Forte

I have received a letter from Kia concerning the exploding air bags which is a concern. However I do love the gas mileage, comfort and size of this vehicle. This car is affordable, smart looking and has a powerful engine. I would have liked a spare tire with my car but I guess they do not supply them anymore.

- William H

Has been an amazingly reliable car for the money

2012 Kia Forte EX

My Kia Forte could quit tomorrow and I could not complain one bit. I have over 230K miles on it and the only things I have done are change the oil, replace tires, replace brakes, replace the battery and replace the windshield wipers. It has been a great little car and I have definitely got my $19K out of it.

- Jamie S

Bluetooth speaker with handsfree phone feature

2012 Kia Forte EX

My car drives well up until I hit 100,000 miles. The car's steering rack needed to be replaced which costed about $1375. Additionally, the timing belt, and water pump will need to be replaced all of which cost more than the car's value itself. Overall, I have enjoyed driving this car for the last 5 years.

- Timothy G

This car is a great and reliable first car for people looking

2012 Kia Forte EX

I haven't had any issues from my car. It's a wonderful car. No complaints here. This is my first car that I've gotten on my own. And honestly I wouldn't have chosen any other car to be my first. This car is truly a trooper. It definitely fits my personality. I'd recommend it for teen as their first car.

- Malik J

Bluetooth feature. Modern style exterior. Modern style interior.

2012 Kia Forte

I love my vehicle. My vehicle has very good performance quality. I've never experienced a problem with my transmission or engine. I've been having the at for almost eleven years and I love it. It's a more modern version of the Kia and it has great features like Bluetooth and automatic seat belt move.

- Carter H

White Kia Forte with black interior

2012 Kia Forte LX

I really enjoy my 2012 Kia Forte. It's not a very big car, pretty normal size to small, but there is a good bit of room on the inside anyways; my 6 foot 7 brother fits no problem. It has a very smooth ride. I love the Bluetooth feature so I can listen to podcasts and music on my drive to work.

- Caleb J

Kia forte 2012: reliable, appealing, resourceful.

2012 Kia Forte

The best car ever! It is very reliable and very gas efficient. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. It is nice for if you have a family as well because there are three additional seats. It rides very smoothly and can accelerate very quickly. The interior of the vehicle is very appealing.

- Deja W

Kia Forte Great gas mileage perfect for single family

2012 Kia Forte EX

My Kia Forte is really great on gas which I love it's not too big just the right size for my little family. It had hands free Bluetooth which is a nice feature. As far as problems go I haven't really encountered any. The side view mirrors close when you're in a tight squeeze which is great

- Chelsea G

I love my car I've had it for about less than 6 years and it still great.

2012 Kia Forte

After 5 years that when things started to go down hill but I love the car never gave me problems. The brand I have is good brand people should invest in Kia. It drives well. They also have 10 years warranty on engine. The performance is spectacular. No need to think about it just buy one.

- Liz E

Great features, small car!

2012 Kia Forte

The car is extremely nice. It has Bluetooth, cruise control, and adjustable seats. It is a little low though, and when I first got it I had to keep ducking to get into the car. I am not the biggest fan of how to get into the back of the car, but that is what you get for having a two door!

- Devon S

Great car, great gas mileage, spacious and comfortable.

2012 Kia Forte

Great car! I have taken it on many road trips through mountains, rain, snow, all types of weather. Vehicle is roomy and comfortable. Gets good gas mileage and easy to drive. Spacious trunk and backseat. Good radio system and Bluetooth setup is easy. Only flaw is recall on airbags system.

- Allison T

Never sit close to the airbag and never leave your junk behind.

2012 Kia Forte

I love my Kia Forte. When I first brought it I fell in love with it, The best thing I like about my Kia is the cold air and getting to drive places. The least I hate about my Kia is how it sounds like a race car, But over all my Kia Forte is a great car for me. It is my first car.

- Rajean W

Drives smooth - not a long run vehicle however.

2012 Kia Forte

Has many defaults. Bad air and heat control. Generic wipers do not last. Some parts are on recall. The Bluetooth option is dysfunctional. I have to reset the car back to the factory settings at time to fix the Bluetooth option. The radio barely receives signal to be honest.

- Jenna D

It is a tiny beast that is great on gas.

2012 Kia Forte EX

The vehicle runs like a dream and gets excellent gas mileage. It does have a loud engine though. It has a nice amount of room and is comfortable for a college student like me. I wish there was a way to completely turn the ac off. You turn it on 0 but it continues to blow anyways.

- Destiny T

Sporty looking get up and go power.

2012 Kia Forte

Looks sporty, very roomy, good gas mileage, handles well. Airbags, alarm system, Siriusxm CD. I have never had any problems other than the windshield wipers do not clean the windows very well and I do not care for where they put the air/heat vents they do not adjust very well.

- Rick C

Peppy car is a wonderful car to have.

2012 Kia Forte

Tires sometimes have had issues and have had to buy multiple tires. I have not had any other problems. I love this car it has been very reliable in the five years I have owned it. I highly recommend this car to anyone. The free oil changes have really helped over the years.

- Kimi F

The always reliable Kia Forte

2012 Kia Forte LX

Absolutely no problems with this car. I love being able to have my phone linked through Bluetooth as well as others can save their phone on my car. Although it may not be the biggest it is just the right size for me and my family. 100% reliable this car has never let me down.

- A B

A smooth ride and reliable vehicle.

2012 Kia Forte

There is an issue with the passenger airbag that the manufacturers know about—I got a recall notice. It gets decent gas mileage, but the mpg decreases as you put miles on the car. Most of the issues I have had have not been the car itself but various accessories and tires.

- Anna S

Great car to own! Love my Kia!

2012 Kia Forte

My Kia is a wonderful car. I get great gas mileage and have had no problems not covered under the 100, 000 10 year warranty. I ride comfortably however my husband is very tall and he is sometimes uncomfortable on long trips. The trunk is roomy and it us a great looking car.

- Julie M

Great car for the working class! I love my car!

2012 Kia Forte

2012 Used Kia Forte in Great Shape

2012 Kia Forte SX

I have a 2012 Kia Forte. The vehicle was used when I purchased it, but was still in incredible shape. I have minimal to no issues with the car. The only real issue was that I had to replace my brake pads a few weeks ago, but that is something to be expected for all cars.

- Kaya R

- Mary F

Pros and cons of a 2012 Kia forte.

2012 Kia Forte

Poor visibility through the back window. It is too compact. The air-conditioning does not reach the back seat passengers. The gas mileage is pretty good, and it accelerates quickly. I would like to upgrade too something slightly larger and with more modern features.

- John S

It has over 100, 000 miles on it and run like new.

I love my car. It is very dependable, cute and can get me place to place. It has all the features that I need in a car and has great gas mileage. It dents easily which is unfortunate but I believe I will keep this car for a very long time. It's a great car overall!

- Madison J

I love how my vehicle looks and drives.

2012 Kia Forte EX

I love my forte. It gets great gas mileage. It is very comfortable to me although taller or larger people may be a little squished in it because it is quite compact. There is a lot of car for the price they retail at now. Have owned it for 6 months and I love it!

I love my car. It has a great amount of space for me and my two dogs. The sound system in the car is incredible. I have had my car for around three years and have never experienced any major problems with the car. It is very reliable and I recommend it to anyone.

- Kayla J

Reliable and affordable Kia.

2012 Kia Forte EX

My Kia gets great gas mileage and it is very reliable. I have had it for 3 years and have not had any problems. The only thing I need to get looked at is a whining noise coming from my air conditioner. Apparently this is a common problem with this year and make.

- Christina C

Best vehicle I have ever had

2012 Kia Forte LX

The perfect at home or road trip car

2012 Kia Forte SX

Very reliable, I have had my Kia Forte Koup for several years and traveled several states and never had a problem! Very roomy, very comfy. Back seat is large enough to be comfortable for an adult for a long car ride. The sunroof is an awesome plus to any car!

- Tash S

Fantastic gas mobile Kia forte.

- Jessica H

KIA fortes are very reliable, and I would recommend a KIA to anyone looking to not break the bank but have a reliable car.

2012 Kia Forte

It's a great car, runs very smoothly and gets me to where I need to go. Only downside is that it is as basic as basic can be. The Bluetooth is terrible and some sensors are not working the way they're supposed to and it would cost a lot to get them repaired.

- Matthew G

My vehicle is amazing and I wouldn't trade it.

2012 Kia Forte

My car is super dependable the only problems I've had with it were brakes which wasn't much to fix. My car provides the most comfort possible we've been on many car trips in the last year and I never once felt uncomfortable. Kia forte is my go to vehicle.

- Jasmine B

A great sedan that is roomy

2012 Kia Forte EX

I enjoy the features of the Kia Forte, the Bluetooth and hands free. I purchased it because of the acceleration it had for a smaller sedan. It has lots of trunk space and comfortable seating. It is definitely a very reliable car with great gas mileage.

- Leslie T

Economical and dependable.

2012 Kia Forte

Gas mileage not as great as I hoped for a four cylinder vehicle but it's got a great turning radius, drives smooth, and is a reliable car. In the last 4 years I've owned the car, I have had regular oil changes but have not had any major repairs needed.

- Amie K

Spacious, versatile, fun.

2012 Kia Forte

Great gas mileage! Also has enough space to comfortably seat 4 adults and their gear. Love the amount of space in the rear which is expandable by folding down rear seats - excellent when transporting a wheelchair. Stereo system is also very good.

- Stephanie H

Great gas mileage. Comfortable. Good sounds. Classy looking. Great air.

2012 Kia Forte

It is very reliable. Low on gas. Very comfortable and spacious for a small vehicle. Large trunk. Classy looking car. I get a lot of compliments. The air works very well and I live in the desert. The sound of the speakers is amazing. I love it.

- Debbie Z

It is a bit banged up but wonderful and the brakes are not that great.

2012 Kia Forte

I absolutely love my Kia Forte, I have been involved in about 3 accidents and my car had held through it all and is still standing tall. I have had to get the brakes fixed quite a bit but it is getting older w the years so is understandable.

- Carla F

It's easy to drive and maintain with minimal repair bills beyond routine maintenance.

2012 Kia Forte

I like the easy of driving and maintenance. The gas mileage could be better, but we don't do a lot of driving so that isn't terrible. Performing little upkeep jobs like changing lights and the battery is fairly straightforward and easy.

- Jamie A

The 2012 Kia Forte is a great small family car that will give you years or reliable service.

2012 Kia Forte

Our Kia Forte has the most reliable, comfortable and trustworthy vehicle our family has ever owned. It has never let us down, it has great gas mileage, the transmission is as smooth as ever and overall it has been a great car to drive.

- Steven B

Fun, smooth ride and economical but a lot of room

2012 Kia Forte

I love the look of my vehicle, very sporty but economical. Very well made not a lot of issues with it. My vehicle had a lot of head and leg room add well as room for hauling stuff. There is really nothing I dislike about my vehicle.

- Terri A

My Kia Forte, purchased used, has been super reliable and gets me to and from work with absolutely no problem every single day.

2012 Kia Forte

My Kia FOrte is super reliable, has over 200,000 miles on it and still only needs routine maintenance. There are a few issues, such as the technology starting to not work (like the USB ports) and the air conditioning no longer works.

- Cynthia V

People should most importantly know that the car is mine and not THEIRS.

2012 Kia Forte

I like the gas mileage the car gets as well as how the car handles. I do not like how lightweight the back doors are, I often have to shut the door twice to have it be secure. I dislike that the car does not have heated seats.

- Shannon Z

that it is rated very high in safety and almost nothing ever goes wrong with it

2012 Kia Forte

i have now had the car for 6 years and It's only been in the last year the anything has gone wrong with it. i just replaced the brakes and bought 4 new tires. for an inexpensive car it has been remarkably long lasting

- carol B

Why I would buy another kia forte.

2012 Kia Forte

My Kia forte has been a great car. We purchased it in 2012 brand new. Its great on gas and has been a very reliable car has 116000 miles and still runs great. Look to pass it on to my child as she starts 5o drive.

- Antwain A

It is a wonderful car. There is however a recall on the airbags and seatbelt.

2012 Kia Forte

I like the color and the shape of it. It is compact but very roomy on the inside which I love. I dislike the eco feature because I feel that it doesn't really work but it makes the car not want to speed up.

- Lindsey M

It's a basic car that offers almost no amenities. If you're looking for something great, this isn't it.

2012 Kia Forte

The car rides fine and has held up well for an older vehicle. I wish the seatbelts could be adjusted more and the seat could be raised higher because I'm short. There is also a bad blind spot in front.

- michelle l

It gets 35 miles per gallon

2012 Kia Forte

My vehicle is a compact sedan that gets very decent gas mileage (about 35 miles per gallon. I also like how quickly the air conditioning cools down in hot weather. I don't really have any complaints.

- Ben G

Drives smoothly, and gets good gas mileage.

2012 Kia Forte

I really like the look of the overall vehicle, runs smoothly and has a kick with acceleration. I dislike that the windows in the back do not go all the way down for my dog. Overall I enjoy this car.

- Sarah H

Good Value for the Money: Reliable, Economical and Comfortable

2012 Kia Forte

I like how reliable my car has been and it gets great gas mileage. However, it's very light and gets pushed around on the highway in the wind. I don't feel very safe in it if I had an accident.

- Monica M

It sells for a very good price. Kia also gives a lifetime warranty through the dealer on lubricated parts on the engine and transmission.

2012 Kia Forte

The Kia is pretty maintenance free and gets good gas mileage. I did have a main seal in the transmission which had to be replaced because it was leaking. Overall, though, I am very happy with it.

- Kent S

It is very good on gas. Good as a working car.

2012 Kia Forte

Super fast, lots of torque, really good get up & go. Full tech package is awesome. Roomie trunk, VERY comfortable bucket seats - heated & leather. A/C doesn't get as cold as if like though.

- Amanda H

it is a good comfortable ride for the cost with little to no maintenance issues.

2012 Kia Forte

I like that it is easy to handle, payments are manageable, it sits comfortably. I do not like the amount of road noise in the car when driving and it is a little too compact inside to me.

- Rebecca H

It may look small on the outside, but on the inside there is more than enough room

2012 Kia Forte

I love the great gas mileage and limited maintenance the car requires. However, because of the limited maintenance I don't know that this car is going to last all that long unfortunately.

- Rayelle F

People should know that it is a very reliable car and that it will last longer if you take it to the dealership to get fixed and worked on.

2012 Kia Forte

I love the amount of space that my car has. While it is a compact car, it does not feel like it. There is enough space to breath and not feel cramped when others are in the car with you.

- Jasmine N

The trunk space on a small car, hatchback

- Mary F

There's a current recall on the make & model of my car. Some to do with the airbags not working properly and that the repair is still under development.

2012 Kia Forte

I like the compact size and that it's a hatchback. I don't like the interior color so much (black); it becomes too hot inside my car when it's only 70 degrees outside

- Angelica B

The Kia Forte is a reliable compact car. It is greatly for weekend trips.

I love the features it came with and its dependability on the road. I don't like that some maintenance repairs have been costly (rear struts $500+ to replace)

My car is small, but not too small. It is really good on gas, which is good for me because I travel to school everyday. Everything works in and on my car.
