recently bought a 2011 kia forte ex. was told i would get a call for a survey . Haven't heard from anybody . Did everybody get a survey from kia? I called kia and thay said if I didn't get a call there was nothing they could do about it. Not very encouraging customer service.
Also ,so far not very good gas mileage. Maybe it will get better after "break in period" ?

Funny...I received a voicemail today saying I would be getting a call for a survey and they hope I would give them a 100% report.....Was told in October '10 I would receive one when I bought the car. Nothing. Not worried about it either. One less call to waste my minutes.

Your mileage should increase after break-in. If you are in mountainous or hilly terrain don't expect to meet EPA ratings...will be less because of the up and down travel.
I've bought a few Kias -- sometimes the survey people call and sometimes they don't. Not something I make a big deal out of...if you're having problems don't wait for the survey people to call...LoL!

I do about 90% city driving and I'm at about 16 MPGs...sucks but the way I drive doesn't help and the new exhaust doesn't either lol def don't worry too much about the survey, for some reason a lot of the time that stuff takes a lot of time and you'll get a call when you least expect it like 2 yrs after u bought the car and you'll be like "o yea forgot about that" lol

So far I am getting about 28 combined after 500 miles. Far cry from the 39 the salesman told me.

I didn't get any survey on the Forte. I did on my wife's Sorento.

So far my gas mileage has not been too good. Averaging about 22 just on my short commute to work in the snow. Finally took a a little trip last weekend from Rochester to Buffalo and back. Ran low 70s with cruise almost the entire way and got 31+. I'm starting to think this is as good as it will do. Flat road and cruise = 31mpg. I've just turned 3000 miles on it (2010 Forte EX 4sp auto).

I have a 2010 SX and averaged 30mpg on the last 3 tanks, 70/30 Highway/city. I just turned 4000 miles this morning. I'm pulling about 5mpg more than I was on the first few tanks of gas...
I could probably up that to around 34, but it's too easy to get on I78 and set the cruise at 80....plus I race around the mountain roads just for fun!

I am hoping for that survey call .Salesman said if I gave them a 100% I would get a car wash and another tank of gas.

Never got a survey on the car purchase.. I think the dealer managed to write down my phone number incorrectly. I did get a survey on the free oil change/warranty repair that was done a couple of months after i bought the car...

From what i understand the dealerships are going to do a majority of e-mail surverys and just so anyone knows if the people that worked on your car deserve 10s please do. If they didnt then by all means rate on your experience. Thats one of the ways we actually get paid. thanks!

gas mileage is disappointing

as far as the gas mileage goes, i agree. i was told of the 3k-5k mile break in period too. i did the math and im getting between 24-25mpg. which is well under the 28-36 that the window sticker reported. i am disappointed. i thought id be getting into a car that would save me money and id be one of those people with a modern car that boasts great mileage. im at the pump as much if not more then i was with my old car.:mad:

I had my mileage improve about 2-3mpg after the first 3000 miles. (And first recommended oil change).
