I LOVE the safety and reliability of my automobile. I'm a mother of four and I travel often. I love to take road trips. My car is great on gasoline and we enjoy smooth ride 100% of the time. I would recommend this automobile to anyone.

I am very glad that I bought my Kia Forte. I travel at least 100 miles a day so the great gas mileage that the Kia Forte gets is extremely important. I would definitely recommend this car, the performance along with the interior/exterior is well worth the money.
