anyone else notice the gear/shifter vibrating in 3rd gear on the 5-speed manual (or 6 speed)?

nope no issue like that here, maybe your tires are off balance or perhaps one of the tires is defective.. check the sidewall for bubles or other strange defects.

those would be the first things I'd check
Good luck

I have noticed this as well. It is around 60km per hour, 2000-2500 rpm in my car.

Yup, I've noticed the exact same. I took it to my dealership and the guy was like "that's normal, it's a kia, you can't expect it to be built like a honda or a BMW" He claimed that kia canada said that it was normal. I don't buy that..

Yeah mine vibrates in third gear as well, and it's usually the gear with the most resistance. It does not shift as smoothly into third as it does with the other gears. I just bought the car about 2 weeks ago and I'm planning on bringing it to my dealer and see what they say about it. Also my stock speakers seem to be giving on on the right passenger side and can already hear distortions with the bass =/

What is your Forte's date of manufacture?

It could be a problem with just the 5 speed manual. I haven't brought it to my Kia dealer yet but I plan on it later this week to see what they tell me about it.
