What's going on with the Kia Dealers?
I just checked the 2 local Kia dealers where I bought my 2011 Forte and my 2015 Forte. Between them, they have 6 Forte5's for sale and NONE of them are 2017's! One is a 2015! Of course, none have a manual transmission. Obviously, no one is buying these cars. They are good cars, reasonably priced, reliable and good looking. Why no takers? I see plenty of Mazda 3 hatches, Focus hatches and Golf/GTi's on road, but no Forte's.
On a separate note, I went to buy a rear wiper blade at the dealer. He didn't have any in stock! I ended up ordering it on line. Now, in my opinion, the minimum parts a dealer should have for every car they sell are filters, plugs, brake pads and wiper blades. If they can't manage that, they should lose their dealership franchise.
OK, rant finished.
