I live in the DFW area of Texas and work in north Dallas. I commute 60 miles a day in B2B traffic. I rarely see another Forte on the road, koup or sedan. Are we the chosen few? Are we the left field buyers that will try anything? I love my "tollway machine" and can't believe there are so few on the road in this crowded area.

I've seen quite a few where I live....100% are all Sedan. Also see quite a few Sportage's and the Sedona!

I live in Wylie, work in Plano. I see Forte EX sedans EVERYWHERE. Koups of any trim are pretty rare, but I did end up at a redlight beside my identical twin a few weeks ago.

Someone in a blue Koup EX parked nose-to-nose with me at the Wylie Target back in September. It was clearly on purpose, because I was at the outskirts of the lot with no cars within 10 spaces of me.

I know where a couple park. (there's one that's always at a grocery store next to my place) (copperhead SX Koup)


and there's another one that parks at a mall close to my dealership (sedan)

I park next to one everyday @ work. But at the most I only see about 3-4 a day. I like that though. . . .Feel kinda unique.

I see Fortes all the time but they usually have fleet plates on them so they aren't individual owners. I can tell that a lot of the other ones that I see are rental cars.

I live in SoCal and with the number of cars on the road & all the traffic I would expect to see a lot of Fortes but honestly I don't.

I started looking at the Forte last April 2010 and finally got one a week ago. Between that time I've only seen at most a dozen Fortes on the road and this is when I'm looking for them as I'm driving.

It's also odd because Kia's sales have gone up for 2010 and it's partly due to the new Forte. I personally don't really mind because it just makes mine that much more special.

So where are all the Fortes? Beamers, Benz, Hondas, Toyotas are a dime a dozen out here so when I do see a Forte, it definitely catches my eye.

Lifetime members get a set of decals. Rumor has it that they will be made available to all members, hopefully soon. Please don't do anything on your end. We've already had this discussion.

That's fine I did not know that. Good to know. A little incentive for joining as a package i guess i didn't see that when skimming through it when signing up.

Exactly my point, I look all the time and see very few...
