A reliable daily driver and beyond.
2016 Kia Forte LX
I bought my car used, and it is now 3 years old and has had no performance or maintenance issues so far. I would consider it reliable. I have driven it on a seven hour road trip as well as through downtown Atlanta on a few occasions, and it has gotten me through both types of conditions successfully. It gets good gas mileage, but I do wish it held a little more fuel. I think the tank is about 12 gallons, and I have to fill up once every 1.5 weeks or so. For being a relatively small sedan, the back seat is pretty comfortable. The trunk is adequate, not huge. My particular model has electric driver seat adjustment and a ~4 inch display for the backup camera. It is also Bluetooth compatible and has steering controls for volume, picking up, hanging up, making voice call commands, and changing track/station. There is also steering wheel cruise control. The car itself sits a little low and is probably better suited for people of short to average height. Overall, I think this model is a great value. I feel like I got a nice quality vehicle for a reasonable price.
