Seems kinda high if you ask me. Did you compare that to the same model new? And if so what was the price. If you are financing, every $1000 is approx $20 dollars a month. So figure out what the difference is and weigh your options/payments. Also I always wonder why someone sells a car that new? Something wrong they couldn't get fixed???

Just some food for thought. Good luck with whatever you do

it could be a repo or lost job... you never know.

you get to keep the 5yr/60000 from the date the original purchaser bought it but the 10yr/100000 on the powertrain is gone at transfer

Ya it figures I got quoted for same model brand new for 15995$ a couple thousand more but like the other person said you lose the 100,000/10 year warranty on a used Forte so I guess if I get it new ill get what i pay for which is warranty I think I am just gonna go with new EX 2000$ down which should be enough down payment :) which ill be getting this week :D

if you are financing, the used one will also have a higher interest rate. New cars are generally about a point cheaper and much easier to get approved on.

When I talked with the salesman at my Kia dealership I asked specifically about Kia's "Certified Pre-Owned" program (thinking all auto manufacturers do) and to my amazement Kia isn't doing that, yet. This reason alone is why I would NOT buy a used Kia. Another thing, that price seems a little steep for a used car with close to 10,000 miles on it. For example, my 2010 EX 5speed AUTO had a sticker price of like 18,150 and after negotiations I got my "brand new" EX for 15,100

What exactly happens to the warranty on a used Kia?

All I've read mentions just the 100,000 warranty part becomes 60,000/5 years minus whatever the vehicle is beyond that.

This is an assumption, but I have always assumed that as long as records were kept of maintenance, that the warranty would be transferred to the new owner as long as the years/mileage conditions were still met.

whats your interest like I'm 22 and got a credit score of 721 You think I can negotiate with them for an interest rate of 5.9% or less?

Well my credit score got me a 2.5% interest rate (score hovers around 800) BUT I opted for an additional year on the payment plan and that boosted the interest rate to 4.5%. A lower monthly payment was more important to me, as I can always pay a little more on it monthly and shorten the pay-off time. I'd say that 5.9% rate you want should be doable with a 721 credit score BUT financing isn't my "Forte". :)
