I have looked this up on the internet for days with no luck. I cant figure out what it is or what its purpose is. My Mazda3 had it too. Any guesses?

The little circle vent thingy next to the AC button.

I believe it is part of the dual climate control system (if installed) I think all Forte's have this even if the dual system is not installed.

I have a EX sedan with the fuel efficient package. My Mazda did not have auto climate. I will see if it comes off today. There is a screen/mesh material behind the plastic vents so pretty impossible to see through without taking it apart.

As far as the flip flops, I don't drive in them either, I just threw them on to go out to my car to take the pic.

i meant just completely barefoot, I've heard from several people its illegal
a lot of people drive with flip flops though, esp in summer and at the beach, but I don't like wearing flip flops

Barefoot would be safer than driving with flipflops. A flipfop can fall off and jam in the brake pedal so you can't stop. Always wear strapped sandals or shoes when driving.

It's where the "Start Engine" button would be if your car had the push button start feature. Instead of making 2 molds for the Forte dash (one with the button and one without) Kia just used one mold for all models and put that nice little cover over the hole for any car that didn't need it. There has been a thread about this once before.

Well this saves me the time of ripping the dash apart to find out. Been sick the past few days and didn't want to venture out just yet.
