Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.37 reviews) My husband and I decided to trade in our 2004 BMW for something newer, with low miles. Something with easier, more affordable maintenance. We are going to be starting a family soon and wanted to get a newer car that had room for our growing family and would last. I had my heart set on a new Chevy Cruze because of the stylish looks and good gas mileage. The Kia Forte wasn't even on our radar. While waiting on an offer for our trade-in, we looked around the car lot. We came upon this cute 2010 Forte and had to take a test drive! Needless to say, we fell in love. We were attracted to the sporty white exterior, 4 doors and spacious trunk. The interior was just as appealing with it's Sirius Satellite Radio, CD player, sizable front and back seats and automatic transmission. We also had a remote starter installed to make winters a little less brutal. We have had the car for 2 months now and couldn't be happier. It's so fun to drive and we can't wait to fill the back seat with car seats!
