#16 of 67 2010 KIA Forte EX lease
May 13, 2010 (10:06 am)
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?

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.
#19 of 67 Kia Forte SX with Power Sun Roof

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.

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

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.
