"Love this car. Wasn't expecting to buy it as i had been looking at larger models -- Mazda 6, Nissan Alitima, et -- which i had test drove and enjoyed but couldnt find a dealer willing to meet my price. A Kia dealer asked me to test drive the smaller Forte, which i did, and fell in love almost immediately. Car hit 80 on the highway without my even noticing. Powerful but smooth acceleration, sharp handling, and just a lot of fun to drive. Gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because of a minor exhaust issue that showed up on the check engine light a week after i drove out of the lot. (Car was still under warrantee.)
Love everything else about it. Great car."
