Known in South Korea as the K3, the Kia Forte is a versatile vehicle available as a two-door coupe, a four-door sedan, and a five-door hatchback. The Forte, although not available in Europe where the similar-sized Kia Ceed is sold, succeeded the first-generation Cerato or the second-generation Spectra, featuring a wider and longer body with a longer wheelbase, reduced ground clearance, and simplified rear suspension for enhanced reliability and maintainability. Initially unveiled as a concept at the New York International Auto Show, the Forte Koup Coupe boasts a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, twin-scroll Theta II engine and is marketed as the Kia Cerato Koup in several countries. In the US, the 2010 LX and EX models came with a standard 2.0-liter CVVT engine and a five-speed manual transmission. From 2011 onwards, six-speed manual and automatic transmissions became standard. The 2017 update of the second-generation Forte introduced LED headlights and taillights, an improved cabin, and the fuel-efficient Nu engine. The third-generation Kia Forte, launched in 2018, flaunted a fastback profile, a stronger steel cabin, and the second-generation I4 engine. Available in FE, LXS, S, and top-of-the-line EX models, the 2019 Kia Forte offers a robust and stylish driving option.
Despite its popularity as a compact car in coupe, sedan, and hatchback forms, the Kia Forte is not immune to wear and tear over time. Engine problems are the most common, according to real-life complaints on CarComplaints.com. Symptoms often include a decrease in gas mileage and engine performance, manifesting as metallic noises, backfiring, overheating, stalling, starting issues, dirty deposits inside the housing, and dirty exhaust. A lit Check Engine Light could signal a need to check the air filter, oil filter, radiator, ignition coil, or throttle body gasket. Suspension, braking, and transmission issues are also common. Brake failures may result from a broken brake pad set or brake disc, while suspension failures, marked by vehicle tilting, bouncing, excessive vibration, often implicate the coil springs. Transmission issues, characterized by whirring and whining sounds, may suggest the need for a thorough inspection of the automatic transmission filter. Beyond these, other parts require regular attention, including the cabin air filter, responsible for filtering out pollutants; the wiper blade and wiper arm, essential for clear visibility; and the door jamb switch, prone to wear due to its electrical nature. Regular maintenance of these components is crucial for the longevity of your Kia Forte.
