Description: Used 2020 Kia Forte FE for sale - $15,998, 17,180 miles with Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control, Side Airbags, Air Conditioning
Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) I would recommend this car for numerous reasons. I chose a KIA out of practicality. The gas mileage is awesome. I get at least 35mpg & even with an approximate 11 gallon tank, it never feels like I’m constantly refueling. It provides a smooth & quiet drive which is a huge plus. KIA has also came a long way in regards to the overall cosmetics of their vehicles. I love the design & overall specs of this car. For once, I feel like I’m getting what I paid for! :)

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) I bought my Kia Forte lxs on Halloween and it’s my greatest treat in 2020!! I LOVE the way it handles as well as how good it is on gas!! I also like the lane assist, sport mode and Apple play features. Oh and the touch screen message center!! Did I mention how nice the alloy rims are?!? Over all it’s a cute little total package of a car. My only con is that I have to purchase my own spare tire. I ordered a factory original rim and tire so that I can have a full size spare. I think ALL vehicles should come with one. But other than that, I love my little Kiia - I named her Rosie.

If I’m ever going on a long drive or vacation the sport mode makes the car go so fast and tight and it’s just plain fun. This is my first Kia and definitely won’t be my last.

Cute little car!!

I bought my Kia Forte lxs on Halloween and it’s my greatest treat in 2020!! I LOVE the way it handles as well as how good it is on gas!! I also like the lane assist, sport mode and Apple play features. Oh and the touch screen message center!! Did I mention how nice the alloy rims are?!?

I think ALL vehicles should come with one. But other than that, I love my little Kiia - I named her Rosie.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: It’s super smooth and easy to handle.
  • Fuel Economy: It’s GREAT on gas!!
  • Styling: It’s a very nice looking vehicle!

Cons

  • Cargo Space: No spare tire.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Can’t beat 35+mpg
  • Cabin Noise: I love a quiet ride & I definitely get that wish this car.
  • Value: There’s actually quite a few things I was surprised to find in this car... such as a backup cam & Bluetooth capabilities for under $16,000. ,
