looks good!

Out hear all the youngsters are buying th manual koups. I have noticed that the forte 5's are mainly autos. I haven't seen another forte 5 turbo yet though. Just them sitting at the dealer and each dealer has 1 or they are on order

Mine was the only manual forte at the dealer and also only 2014. So I got a $5000 rebate.

Nice! Mine was 29k and got it for 22k lol. The only 2015 5 there and they had no other turbo models koup or 5. They sold the last koup the day before I came but it was a basic one with the turbo

That's a great deal... I paid 22 for mine after all taxes and pdi.... and that was with a 5000 rebate on the 2014.... yours is a auto too so that's a 1500-2000 option I think? I thought I got a good deal but others surprise me....

Heck Yeah! I sat at the dealer for 4hrs battling them on price. Mine has every option on it. I wanted mainly the sunroof and nav but they only had it loaded. Had to get auto for the wife since she has problems with her hands when it gets cold. She really likes the steering wheel warmer.

Anyways sorry to hijack I love the white that kia offers. I didn't like it till I saw it up close aand noticed it was a pearl. Maybe I can go to the snow and blend in like you can!

That sucks.... I think your conversation is off.... not sure if you converting to imperial gallons? But 1.21 / liter = 4.57 / us gallon.
Whatever I get pissed about gas prices, I usually call my dad in Vancouver and ask what he is paying. .... usually around 1.50 or so....
What kind of truck do you have?

Nice truck, looks like a gas guzzler for sure.... This car is definitely good on gas, when I first got it, I was averaging 7l/100km but I was taking it easy for first 1000km, now I get about 9.5-10l/100km but its winter so warming car up and bit more spirited driving.

Nice dodge! I had a 07 sport and loved the hemi. I am sure you get worse mog because of it lifted and the bigger tires. Mine had a k&n intake system 3" dual exhaust and diablo tuned. Thing was a beast. I usually avg 22-24 on the fwy and 18-19 city. Mine had the multi displacement
