My views on the KIA Forte Koup
I have had my Forte Koup, which I bought at Hanson KIA in Olympia about 3 weeks ago. I actually moved up from a 2006 KIA Spectra and as I told many of my friends and family it was quiet the transition. I am very impressed by how well it drives and how comfortable it makes you whenever you get in. I handling of the car on the road, the instruments, and the savings on gas are excellent. The electronics are easy to use and make the car even more comfortable and fun to drive. Sadly I have found one downside to it. One week after I got it I had to change the windshield. It seems that there is no molding around around the windshield like older models used to have. In my case a very small rock hit the windshield 1/2 inch off the edge and gave me a 10" crack. I was advised that if they still had the safety molding this would not have happened. Hopefully KIA will correct this in the future, the edges of the windshield are the stress point. Other then this it is well worth the money.
I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
