hello,i have a 2010 kia forte koup sx with auto trans.the only issue i have had from the ones you have mentioned here is the bluetooth sometimes not connecting automatcly.yes this does happen to me on occasion as well for unknown reasons.but it does work and you do have to have the windows closed in order to be heard from the bluetooth system.as far as the a/c goes mine works very well down here in the south fla heat and iv'e actually had to turn it down a few notches because it got to cold..maybe the sedan forte sx has more issues than the koup version but i have had my car since march of this year and it's been pretty good overall.
#39 of 50 Initial Problems with EX Koup
Aug 24, 2010 (7:55 am)
Has anyone else experienced the following "anomolies" that our EX Koup has experienced in the first week since owning it?
1. Twice, when turning off the car and removing the key from the ignition, the radio will continue to play for a few seconds, sometimes up to 10 seconds, but then will turn off.
2. Once, after exiting the car, the rear tail lights were still on. The car was off and the keys were removed and the car had been locked. Noticed it while inside at a 7-11 gas station. We have the auto-headlights enable, but the headlights themselves were turned off. It was only the rear tail lights that were still lit.
Otherwise, love the car!!

i have the forte koup sx and have not experienced the issues that you are describing here.you could possibly have some electrical issues with the car.even though it's brand new sometimes these things happen due to defects from the factory.but that's what new car warranty's are for.bring it back to the dealer and let them diagnose the problem.

Have you had any resolution yet? I have the same car and when it rains (which is frequently) the driver side seatbelt gets soaked... The dealer has supposedly fixed it twice, but it's back in the shop today.

the dealer did a water leak test a few weeks ago and could not duplicate the leak that i told them i had..problem is that it only happens when water is comeing in sideways like when it's very rainey and windy and not when it's comeing straight down.might be something that i'll just have to live with unless it gets worse...

Should be easy to duplicate in a car wash....if there's one at or near the dealership, you could just have him go with you to it.
Or what about a simple hose? It's not that hard to duplicate water coming in at an angle.

your right,when they did the water leak test they probably just filled a cup of water and just poured it over the window rather than do a more thorough leak test.anyway,did they discover why your seat-belt was getting soaked on the driver side when it rained???
#46 of 50 Light near speedmeter that turns on and off while I am driving ?
Dec 15, 2010 (10:33 pm)
What is that light near speedmeter that turns on and off while I am driving ?
I asked the dealer and he said that the car is running in efficient mode .. something like it.
I test drove the car at night, and it was a bit annoying to see that turning on and off...
Does everyone notice this light ? not annoying at all ? or any option to turn that off ??

sounds like the Ecominder indicator, see page 4-53 in your manual for operation.
