  1. 2012 Kia Forte Blue/Phone not working

    Forte Audio, Video and Electronics
    Make sure you aren’t plugging the phone in to the usb outlet when trying to connect. It makes the system cranky. Sometimes mine freaks out and can’t figure out how to connect but I eventually get it going. It’s not really a great head unit. I’m looking to upgrade mine eventually to something...
  2. Driver Door Popping Noise

    Koup General Discussion
    Mine does that too. I'll try lubricating it. I rarely open the door all the way so I never got annoyed enough by it to do anything.
  3. Good set of emblems?

    Koup General Discussion
    K5optimastore.com has them for all of the models. You just select the year and the model. They also have them for the center spots on the wheels.

    Betch, was yours worse with the ac on?
  5. Growl from stop or very low speeds

    Kia Forte 2.4L Engine Discussion
    So I took the intake all apart and got the same noise but in the process, I also realized it is coming from the opposite side. Also with the warm weather I noticed it is significantly louder with the ac running and the groan is worse on initial acceleration 700-1200 rpm. I’m thinking maybe the...
  6. 2019 Kia Forte s Bluetooth problem

    Forte Audio, Video and Electronics
    That’s definitely an Android issue and not a car issue. Force shut down your phone. Google how to do so for your particular phone model. Uninstall and reinstall android auto and try again. Not all phones work properly with android auto yet. I have a google pixel and mine would have issues every...

    Not a whole lot done to it yet. I debadged a bit and then plasti-dipped the Kia badges until I get the aftermarket badges. I spent about 8 hours last week cleaning the interior (steam cleaning, etc) and changed the oil last week. I'll be doing the brakes in the next couple of weeks. This is the...

    Kia Forte 2.4L Engine Discussion
    I haven't been able to pinpoint it for sure yet. I'm out of town until next Saturday and then I'll try to give it some more attention to find out. I appreciate you chiming in as well! It drives me crazy to have ideas for stuff to check but have it across the country right now 😂

  11. Growl from stop or very low speeds

    Kia Forte 2.4L Engine Discussion
    Thanks! Ill check the intake connections. I don’t think I mentioned this, but the car is all stock. It also does the same noise if I am in gear, foot on brake, and giving a little throttle as well.

    Kia Forte 2.4L Engine Discussion
    Hey all, I'm new to the forum here ad this is my first Kia. I have a 13 Koup SX 2.4L and we bought it about a week ago. I didn't notice this when at the dealer, but the more time I've spent with the car with different driving dynamics, the more I've noticed this odd sound. It's kind of a...

    Howdy all! We just bought ourselves a 2013 Koup SX 2.4 in racing red a week ago. 87k. I've been on the Hyundai side of these forums with my Sonatas so I'm happy to be here!

    I know this is old, but I got the same thing on my 13 Hyundai Sonata in Nebraska a few years back. Must be regional by model.
