They like it... a lot.

0-60 in 7.4 seconds with an automatic is pretty peppy.

The old body style was pretty good, but the changes (making it look more like the Optima) are literally head-turning. I saw one on the road the other day and I was floored when I saw the Forte nameplate.

Agreed. The entire Kia product line has some beautiful designs.

Now to wait for the SX wink.gif

On note about the 2.0 tho, Kia is pulling the crap of not offering a manual with the larger engine/higher trim lvl still.

How is it different from the 2013 koup? That one I almost bought but they did not have the color I wanted.

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.
