Kia: A lot more than just amazingly and amusing hamsters!

2019 Kia Forte FE

This was only the second car I've ever purchased and it is far better than the first. I wish I had looked in to Kia long ago - The staff are amazing, their cars are reliable and have technology that is easy to understand. My car performs as well as I could ever hope for and I love having the 'smart' drive feature so it can 'learn' my driving habits and adjust accordingly (sport, normal, etc). It is extremely comfortable except that over rough roads the ride is not as smooth as I would like for it to be, but that is certainly not a deal breaker. That would honestly be the only issue I've ever had with it. Other than that it is practically perfect, especially with the touch screen and voice-activated features.

Kia FORTE ROCKS! Very reliable, easy, great gas mileage, awesome features,

2019 Kia Forte EX

Vehicle is very comfortable. Has extras like Apple carplay, backup camera, voice to text all very good to have. It has four doors and an awesome amount of trunk space. The driving features include a normal, smart and sport driving mode that are handy for the situations of driving that I do. Keeping the car clean is a breeze because of the floor mats that were included with the car as well as the overall size isn't too big but comfortable for me to take trips in it. The gas mileage on the Forte is also a winner as it gets over 30 miles to a gallon highway miles and 26 city mileage.

Kia Forte- pretty worth in my opinion

2019 Kia Forte EX

The Kia Forte is honestly a pretty decent car. The features are amazing for the price. The car has Apple carplay installed so if you're an iPhone user, it'll be very convenient. It's simple enough that I can understand how to work it out and I'm not a tech savvy person at all. It's very gas efficient and it runs pretty smooth. The trunk size is enormous compared to the size of the car. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the trunk. The inside of the car isn't too tight, but I'm a small person so I guess that'll have to depend on the person.
