Pros: Stylish interior/exterior
Cons: Interior plastic scratches easily
I bought my Kia Forte one year ago and I still absolutely love it. It is stylish and blew all of its competitors out of the water. I have not had any trouble with it so far and I am always getting comments about how good the car looks. It has many standard features (bluetooth, ipod jack, etc) that other cars in it's class either don't have or you have to pay extra for. It is comfortable for me to drive for long periods of time (I am only 4' 10'', so this was a very important factor to me), and for the price I paid, it drives very smoothly as well. The handling is great and the gas mileage is not bad either. It has ample amount of trunk space for a smaller car and the inside does not have the "small car" feeling to it either. I also love the warranty that this car came with (10yr/100,000 mile). It was one of the main reasons that I bought it- you really can't beat a warranty like that. There are limitless things that I could go on about for what I love about this car, but there are a few cons. One thing is that the interior plastic is easliy scratched- but that can be avoided by simply paying attention to what you are doing. Also, I don't like how the seatbelt height can't be moved like some other cars have, but since most people are not as short as I am, it is probably not that big of a deal. Mine did not come with lighted vanity mirrors in the sun visors but they are not really a necessity. All in all, I give this car 5 stars and always reccomend it to someone who is looking to purchase a new car.
