For many of us, daily life isn’t always exciting. Unless, that is, your blood starts pumping when you think about running errands, moving some stuff out of storage, and other such mundane activities. No, it’s not enough to even cause a blip on a heart rate monitor, but it’s the reality faced by the majority of American drivers and their cars. So, it’s fitting that I spent my week with the 2010 Kia Forte, the subject of this installment of Autobytel’s “Living With” series, examining what it was like to go about my everyday routine with Korea’s version of the Honda Civic.
In the end, my reactions should only surprise those who aren’t familiar with the progress Kia has made in recent years.
