Just leased a new Kia Forte LXS. The build quality is pretty good and this Forte has the Kia "In House' built CVT transmission that Kia calls the "IVT". Decent power and awesome gas mileage. The only thing that bothers me on the car is what they did with the gas pedal. They used to have that nice chunky, sprung from the floor gas pedal that was easy to rest the foot on. This one is small and light and close to the carpet on one side, very annoying. I find it tough to drive with tennis shoes or dress shoes. Really, that's my only complaint. Price to lease was very reasonable. "
