At the time I was looking for a used vehicle to purchase after I seen how cheap KIA's were and the warranty they came with I decided to purchase one. I bought this vehicle from my local KIA dealership on 7/10/2015 brand new off the lot. This car has a nice list of features/options you are able to get and customize like any other car. I was always a ford vehicle customer in the past until I purchase a 2010 CHEVY Malibu (JUNK) which was a complete nightmare I hated that car so I end up trading it for this.I purchased the EX Trim of the Forte, because of the options I seen on the car I was impressed with the price value of the sticker.Comparing to other compact cars this is a great value that not many can compete with.Pros:-Warranty-(Keep this in mind if you are purchasing a KIA dealers may try to add on extras not needed)10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty5-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan-Luxury Side-Automatic Folding MirrorsPush Button StartHeated/Air Cooling Driver SeatHeated Passenger SeatsDual Climate Control-Technology Side-Back Up CameraSatellite RadioUVO System (AMAZING)NavigationWith the UVO System you can log into your account and see your driving score and base on the score it will give you tips.-Performance-Handles Great around turns2.0L Engine Gas Direct InjectionHighway Driving I have seen 34 MPGAround my area is rural I usually get approximately 29-32 MPGCons:Acceleration is a bit slow at timesIt would be pretty cool if the GPS screen is a pinch to zoom type of screenFeature list on website is limited even for the ex trimWish it had some interior lighting for at night like on most the newer ford carsResale Value isn't all that great on KIA'sCarpet Floor Mats is a option that should be standard not paying extra for it (Pay $75 for it)Back up camera can be a bit foggy at times
