Please mention the price at which you bought your kia forte and also any suggestions/tips associated with it.

It would help if the price is mentioned as an OTD = a+b+c , the place bought and any deals/offers you availed.

    just got back with my girlfriend who is trying to purchase a forte koupe sx auto.
    msrp including sunroof is $20,090.00...we made a offer of $18,000.00 over the this a fair price??
  • Hey, I went out looking at Forte Sxs, i ended up going with the Forte Sx over the Koup Sx, but ill share the prices i came up with for the Koup SX if it helps you at all. The $20,090 msrp is $17,695 + $1000 Leather Package + $700 Moonroof + $695 Destination Charge. For an Invoice price i got $16,860 + $870 Leather Package + $620 Moonroof = $18350 invoice (destination will be added). All cars have a holdback from the factory of 2-3% of the car. I found on the Koup Sx it was about $581, So the Dealer roughly paid $17769 + $695 Destination Charge for a price about $18464. so 18,000 they will be losing money, a good quote on the car would be adding 3-5% of $17769 for Profit then the Destination Charge. So i would make an offer of $19000-$19400 is a good price. I personally wanted the koup but the forte itself has $1000 rebate on all trims and $500 loyalty if you own a kia now.
  • Bought from Head Motors in Coulmbia, Mo. Price was $19k and change. No hassles, no pressure, no hidden charges. They gave me book on a Corolla trade...even with all the Toyota problems. (price did include the $500 toyota discount) I would recommend this dealership and am happy with the Kia.
  • Just purchased a Forte EX with Fuel Economy for $15,000. I also added an extended warranty that extends the bumper to bumper coverage to 10/100,000, and includes Road Side Assistance and 2 years of maintaience for an additional $800. My total with ALL taxes and fees was $17,261.38

    msrp for this car is $19890.00..rebates in effect total $1500.00 so i figure with the rebate and maybe a little dealer discount i should be able to purchase this car for around $18,000.00 plus TTT......
  • Tried to purchase in Hagerstown MD, could not get a deal ( said that they were the biggest dealer in the state). Afterwards, I used edmunds quick quote, was wonderful. Next day recieved several quotes from the Baltimore D.C. area. Laurel Kia quoted me 14880 out the door for the EX gas mileage package, could not beat it. Where Hagerstown wanted me to buy one of the two on their lot for 1500 TO 2000 more, Laurel Kia was willing to go and get us the dark cherry that we wanted. Great deal and great experience.

    Retail: $17,391 (includes destination charge of $695) (Edmund's invoice is $17.355 a difference of $36)

    tax 7%: $1217.37 (Indiana)
    tire tax: $1.25
    Title+Doc fee: 199.50
    total: $18,809.12

    rebate: $1500 ($1000 cashback + $500 comp bonus )
    OTD: 17309.12 @ no hassle buying from Ray Skillman Auto Mall / Indianapolis

    I love the extra power I can feel with the manual. I test drove the auto but found it to be lacking in response. I drove the koup sx manual, but did not like the lowered roof and lack of space in the back.

    Hi there, first time poster long time reader.

    I am interested in leasing a 2010 KIA Forte EX, automatic transmission, with the Fuel Economy Package, for 36 months, and 12k miles per year. Can someone please post KIA's money factor and residual values for the May leases?

    Also, my credit rating is 743, would that qualify me for the best money factor?

    Can anyone verify if there is a lease incentive/rebate on this model?

    Thank you.
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    don't think that there are many good leases deals with the kia because of the poor resale values and that's a big factor when negotiating a lease deal.the kia's are worth peanuts as soon as you drive one off the lot.your best bet would be to lease a honda or toyota because of the better resale values which would lead to a better lease deal.

    EX Auto with no options MSRP (includes destination) = $17,690
    Selling Price = $15,971
    Doc Fees = $598
    Sales Tax (7% Fulton County GA) = $1159.84
    Title,Tags = $18.00
    GA Warranty Protection Act = $3.00
    Sub Total = $17,750.00
    Rebates = Cash Bonus ($1,000) + Competitive Bonus ($500) came to -$1,500
    OTD = $16,250

    Not sure if it was a great deal, but based on shopping around Atlanta I think it was good/decent.

    Just purchased on 6/1 from Battlefield Kia in Gettysburg, PA a 2010 silver Kia Forte SX Sedan automatic with a power sunroof and only 49 miles on it. Asked that the ipod cable be included which it was.

    Did not have the auto-dimming mirror, leather package or cargo net or tray.

    Sticker: 19,890 plus a few hundred for dealer appearance package, etc.
    Total before negotiation: 20,100
    Final price with 2,000 in rebates and negotiation: 16,583

    16,583 was their first price to us and I knew going in that anything in the low 17s was a heck of a deal! Then they found a bank to give us 3.24% 60 month financing. We came home to double check all the price and loan numbers since this seemed pretty low... confirmed it and went back the next day to do the paperwork.

    I found the buying experience very good, hassle free, and pleasant. I do wish they would have done a better job cleaning the car before pick-up. Dirty windows and a few bits of pretty visible dirt in the trunk showed that the windex and vacuum did not get a lot of use when they prepped it for delivery.

    is this the forte sx koup or the sedan??
  • mndconnmndconn Posts: 3
    my price was for the sedan, sorry I forgot to mention that.
  • tannortannor Posts: 7
    I really like this car after trying out the hynudai elantra,

    but price they offered i thought was too high..before taxes $16,004 includes rebate, OTD was around $18,560

    This had nothing extra was just standard EX. I was actually surprised they did not try to hard sell us, they let us go pretty easy.

    I know I can do better then that
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    the reason that they were probably relaxed on the high pressure sale is because the forte's and forte koup's specificly are pretty hot cars right now.
  • tannortannor Posts: 7
    Ok I went to another dealer and for the EX - got him down to $15,470, out the door is $16,878

    Picking it up tomorrow
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    is this the forte EX sedan or the EX koup???
  • tannortannor Posts: 7
    The sedan...I never even looked at the coup, since I wanted 4 door
  • So to be clear u got Forte ex w. fuel economy package in dark cherry? Is that right?
  • I purchased my Forte on the last day of the CARS program and was out the door for 18.5k. Got $4500 trade in and put 1k down. Was very happy w/ vehicle. 2 weeks ago was stopped in traffic and was rear ended by Chevy Tahoe going 45mph or so I was told. Walked away from it relatively unscathed. Rear crumple zones absorbed shock but now car is totalled. Will definitely be getting another Forte ex w/ fuel eco pkg. What is best price anyone has got in Southern US within last month or so?
  • Just picked up a Black SX Koup from Burlington KIA in NJ. Easy to deal with and all the non nonsense we go threw getting a car. Car is very tight and from what I can see and feel after 800 miles - perfect little commuter ..... Avg, @ 31 MPG's by the computer. Handles bigger then it is.... Very , Very Happy !
  • Burlington kia NJ - Rocks Black SX w/ all bells and Whistles.

    Picked it up four days ago - Walked in - did my homework and all and told them this is what I want and the GM - Said go pick one.,

    Great people. match any price within 100 miles.
  • Hey~
    I think you've got a great deal. I also live in Fulton county and am trying to buy EX with no option and asking for $16,500 OTD after taking cash rebate of $1500. Can I ask where you got the deal? Mine is Cobb. Thanks in advance.
