I love the eco option for around town. I turn it off for highway driving and the car can really go.

It's been very cost effective. The purchase price was cheaper than comparable vehicles and the cost of ownership has been minimal.

Love this car
"I love the sporty handling of my Kia Forte. The seats are comfortable even on long trips and it's great on gas. It has a good stereo and I am at 107k miles on it now and it's never given me any trouble other than normal things like needing new battery and tires and brake pads. When I retire this one I will be getting another Kia Forte. "

The interior is nice for the price. I have the rubber floor mats which is nice and it's roomy for hauling my grandkids around. The radio, cruise control and phone controls are on the steering wheel so that's nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the upholstery could be more stain resistant.

Love the design and the paint has held up nicely in the hot GA sun without garage parking.

I love the responsive steering and for a 4 cyl car it picks up quickly enough and shifts smoothly.

The back seat can hold two full size car seats and still have room in the middle for a normal size adult.

Great car for under 20K and oil changes are every 5k miles. Great gas mileage for me since I drive a mix of city and highway.
