Provides features but not the performance

Pros - Enjoying the wide range of safety features and auto start

Cons - The power is extremely scarce at times

Got such a futuristic car for a very decent price I am enjoying the driver aids in this car, and they are so good. I did not have them prevoiously and I use them as often as I can. The car maintains the lane on which I drive easily without any push, and it also helps me see where I can't look, the people at the store said its blindspot monitoring or monitor, I forget which. Anyways work just fine and also auto starts. The first car I bought was the Cavalier and it was all the rage back in the day. Can't believe how much the cars are self sufficient nowadays. But sometimes the power is not as it is on other times and lacks power very much. I went to the store on 11 November and there was a veteran's day discount going on for retired marines. I got a good discount from the place and the way they treated me was great. Me and my wife don't go out much nowadays but they are a really nice folk at the place. So helpful. Even manage to stay in touch if any car emergency arises as I had told them of my inability to go out much due to the age.

2020 Kia Forte review

Pros - Cruise control, lane keep assist, and tons of other features

Cons - No CD, mpg, uninspiring style

Lovely drive Originally from California, I drove the car to the Northern Plains through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, and North Dakota. The cruise control holds speedwell and the ride was absolutely dreamy while the cars tracking on the road has always been excellent. The transmission shifts flawlessly, both smooth and quiet. When the accelerator is smashed the engine revs appropriately and gets one into the passing lane efficiently although not sportingly. The only flaw I found is the mpg is a little lower than what Kia claims. Great! The salesperson and everyone were really polite and professional. They have a very clean facility and also have a coffee machine. Loved my time there. Will definitely recommend them.

My new Kia Forte

Pros - Plenty of features for money. Strong fuel economy. Premium styling.

Cons - Boring to drive. Rear seats a bit cramped.

Most bang for the least buck! Honestly speaking, I'm quite happy I chose the Kia Forte over the popular Civics and Corollas. It has so much to offer for Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM radio, a large 8' touchscreen, wireless charging pad and a host os driver assist systems are all standard across the Forte. Though the engine is not that peppy, it does offer good fuel economy the tech-savy me than the Japanese brands at a lower price. Android Auto, numbers for everyday driving. Absolutely satisfied since the last year!
