I am now the proud owner of a new Kia Forte 5 SX; drove it off the lot in cash one week ago and so far so good. I drove everything American, Japanese and South Korean in the $15,000-$25,000 range and decided on this fine South Korean Product which offered more for less w a better warranty. I sold a Chevy SUV ( gas guzzler) and didn't want to lose the cargo space by buying a car but wanted the cheaper price, the gas mileage and the versatility of a car with storage and cargo space and the Kia 5, the Mazda 3 hatch and a few others made the final cut with the KIA winning out. Of course having a very good friend as the leading salesperson at the #1 volume KIA dealership in TX helped out at the cash register. I'll share that story in ' What did you pay for your 5 door' but wanted to introduce myself first.

This forum has been useful and I'll soon start sharing with others my experience but as of now I just have 360 miles on the car, drove out with only 25 miles but started my test drive at 9 miles, those were probably all the PDI guy.
