Description: Used 2016 Kia Forte LX for sale - $16,998, 27,805 miles with Auxiliary Audio Input, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control, Side Airbags, Air Conditioning, ABS Brakes
Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.5 reviews) The 6 Speed manual transmission just sucks, it takes all the fun out of driving a manual transmission car. It's a great little car, gets great gas mileage, and would be a blast to drive if it were an automatic, or had a normal 5 speed transmission. Kia really dropped the ball with the 6 speed. I know they did it to improve the gas mileage, but they took all the fun out of driving.

Great Car, Don't buy the 6 Speed Manual

The 6 Speed manual transmission just sucks, it takes all the fun out of driving a manual transmission car. It's a great little car, gets great gas mileage, and would be a blast to drive if it were an automatic, or had a normal 5 speed transmission. Kia really dropped the ball with the 6 speed. I know they did it to improve the gas mileage, but they took all the fun out of driving.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: It gets great gas mileage.
  • Power: It has a lot of power.
  • Ride and Handling: It rides really nice and smooth

Cons

  • Visibility: It is a little low so its hard to see over other vehicles.
