    I just leased a 2022 Kia Forte, the dealership has assigned the vehicle to have a 42% residul value at the end of the lease (original value $25,462, value at end of lease $10,830) is 42% typical for residul value? I have seen other posts where the value of a Kia after 5 years should be about...

    I just purchased a 2021 Kia Forte Gt with the 1.6 turbo engine with a manual transmission. Car had 188 miles at delivery. I was cruising on the freeway back home and made it about 12 miles before I was met with a battery discharge light. I though that was odd because it’s brand new but thought...

    My Kia Cerato 2010 S (140000kms) has a extremely low clutch biting point to where I only have to lift the pedal 2cm off the ground before it starts to engage. This cause extreme jerking as the room for error is high. I have experimented with trying to adjust the clutch pedal but it has no...

    Hello! I own a 2015 Kia Cerato (Forte in the US) Sedan, the car has been treated very well, and has done 58,000kms. For some time now (approx. a year) I have been hearing a rumbling or rattling noise coming from the rear of the car. As it is under warranty (until early next year - hence I have...

    I'm trying to replace the front bumper on this 2017 Forte. Got all the 3 clips and 1 screw from inside the wheel wells. Got the 4 screws from the top edge... just under the front edge of the hood. Pulled the 4 or 5 clips from the underside of the bumper. And I think that should be it, right...

    Late last winter, especially when it was very cold, I had an issue with my car making a clicking noise that would lessen as the engine or weather warmed. It was very similar to having a plastic card clipped to your bike so it would flick on the tire spokes. Took it to O'Reilly's autoparts to...

    I checked the fuses, made sure the connections were tight and looking more for an answer than a fix because that is almost certainly going to require a replacement of the control unit in the center of the dashboard. A while ago I noticed that when the seasons would change and the temperature...

    Does anyone know how to access user settings in a 2017 Forte LX (like where you can change the auto lock feature and all that)? I’ve checked the manual and the internet but had no luck.

    Hi all, as stated in the title above, I did engine bay cleaning by washing it using gardener hose (no jet water) plus with alternator, distributor & battery being covered by plastic. The problem came after cleaning it I gave about 2-3 hours to dry the engine. But when I'm trying to start the...

    Hello guys, Please help me if anyone has an idea. I have a Kia Forte 2014 LX, I purchased my car without a key fob, just the metal key and I have taken the car to some key shops to program a key fob but no one has been able to program it. They use the handheld and try to use different cars...

    My 2011 Forte Koup is suddenly in limp mode despite having no signs of issues the day before. The gas pedal is hardly detecting and the car will only get to around 1000-1100 rpm before dying back down and not detecting the pedal at all. I used my OBD scanner and got the codes 0123 and 0223, as...

    I'm looking for a new-to-me car and found this 2016 Forte5 that I like. I'm new to Kia's so I did some research and found the engine issues but only for 2011-2014 Theta II engines. I saw a few posts about the 2015-2016 engines having the same engine failures, but you can find that on any car...

    Excuse me for a lack of knowledge into car stuff as I'm relatively new to it. Been wanting to amp up my 2015 Kia Forte Koup (speed, loudness, economy etc), have researched a lot here and there but don't really know what would be good for my car specifically. Could anyone recommend a beginner...

    Hi all, I purchased a new 2019 Forte LXS, this is my first car, and I love it. Although, I was curious if there was anything I can do to potentially upgrade the infotainment system to possibly UVO services? I’m unsure if this a potential software firmware upgrade I could buy or if my car...

    Hey all, I have gone to KIA dealerships, consulted manuals and forums and cannot seem to find what kind of Turbo this model Forte has. I'd love to add bolt-ons and tune to a desired amount of psi (with a controller and several other tune-ups) but have no luck knowing what's under the hood. Any...

    My front drivers side turn signal isn’t working. When I use it, it flickers fast on my dashboard. The back blinker and the blinker on my side mirror both work but just not the one in the front. I’ve already changed the bulb, and checked all my fuses. I know nothing about cars but I don’t want to...
