    I was browsing new GT Manuals online and found a blue one with black rims. It said KIA in the center and had a red circle around it. This was a few days ago. Unfortunately, I think it sold so I can't include a pic now. I've google imaged it and can't find another example anywhere. Does anyone...

    Hi folks, Curious what mpg other are getting. Have a 2011 Kia Forte Ex with Eco mode. The 13.7gallon fuel capacity gets me just over 400km in the city, and around 700km on the highway. My daily commute is under 10km which may be the biggest drag on performance. Should I be concerned?

  17. Kia Forte (2014+) 2.0L GDI Engine Discussion
    I'm seeing some similar stories here but I'm hoping to collect some successful outcomes as a guide for how to proceed with my own ride. My Forte is at 156k, it's been burning oil since at least 85k. I took it in for a repair check at 95k, but it passed their tests. I should have persisted while...

    Got my hands on a brand new black Forte GT. Already got 2k on it within less than a month. Instantly got a muffler delete and did a bypass valve delete. Saving for tint as the car isn't tinted, then going to aim for a new intake, rims and tries. I'm sure when that's all said and done I'll be...

    Hello! This is my first post and hope someone can help me. Yesterday I tried to star my car in the morning but it looked like the battery was dead, the car wouldn’t start and I heard kind of an electrical noice but nothing happened.
