Used 2013 Kia Forte LX for Sale
Reviews for 2013 Kia Forte
awesome vehicle for the buck
i purchased a 2011 kia forte sx 5 door (loaded w/leather and navigation) from carmax here in littleton, co. first, let me start off that i was initially considering a 201x golf tdi, 201x subaru forester and impreza, 2012 mazda3 skyactiv, 2011 hyundia elantra GT 5 door, and ford focus (st). the LAST vehicle i test drove was the kia forte sx 5 door. i didn't even have kia on my radar. i was walking by the carmax lot 2 weeks ago when i spotted the 2011 forte sx 5 door for sale. the door was unlocked so i helped myself. leather heated seats (i came from a 99 grand cherokee v8 laredo - only power windows). nav/sat/am/fm and paddle shifters (auto 6 speed). the kicker was this thing had only 5,200 miles on it (5,200 not 52,000!) and was priced BELOW both NADA and KBB values (when the packages were included in it). the following week (i took my time and did some research on it as well as carmax) i popped up there and ERIC (the salesman) and i took it out for a spin. i told him i was going to see how the sport tuned suspension works (or didn't work). eric was a big man ... and the car held the corners just fine. i'm 44 YO, so i'm not looking for top end performance, this vehicle hit just the right spot in terms of PERFORMANCE vs. EPA. the paddleshifters (i'll NEVER go manual again, because paddle shifters BEAT manual any day of the week) rocked. i also researched carmax's NO HAGGLING POLICY. as a haggler, i want every penny i can get. i pointed out nicks, dead battery's, missing manuals, missing iPod cables ... eric promised to get these all fixed (and DID), but the price was still the price. i went home that night and did some FURTHER research. the next day, i purchased it. i was also lucky, because its hard finding a 201x forte sx 5 door loaded (leather/nav/sun) ANYWHERE in the country. the carmax purchase was PLEASANT. eric/summer took car of my cash purchase in 40 minutes. the vehicle was washed and cleaned. the title/paperwork was accurate. the purchase price was exactly what was stated. 2 weeks afterwords they did re-imburse me for the missing iPod cable and missing manual ($50). would i buy from carmax (littleton, CO) again? absolutely, but the price and vehicle has to be right. NOT all prices on their cars are (in my opinion) good values. and i am VERY particular in the year/make/model/options (and finally color) ... so SHOP AROUND and don't be talked into something because they don't have what you want in stock. btw, i love their no-pressure sales *tactic* :) 3 week update: put on bug guard (hood deflector), mud flaps for front and rear wheels, 1 1/4 accessory tow hitch (bike rack as i road/mtn bike a lot), yakima roof rack, and of course, the made in the USA weathertech floor mats!
Great car purchased at a great dealership with great customer service!
coming from a suv with 3rd row seating to this car, I don't feel like I've lost any space. it has plenty of leg room and the truck is huge. It is very spacious and comfortable. It is absolutely great on gas, I love the Bluetooth and I love the cost-effective oil change option.
