Pulled up next to a new Elantra GT and the car is a looker, no doubt about it and much better looking than the Veloster. Hyundai/Kia seems to be on a roll lately making handsome vehicles that customers want to buy...a great position to be in. And the warranty helps as my wife who knows next to nothing about a car knows about the long warranty Hyundai/Kia products have so their advertising buck is definitely paying off big time. And their vehicles, besides looking really nice, are a blast to drive! They are "fun" vehicles with a little edge which is going over big time with the public. Personally, the new Civic looks a bit bland compared to the Korean offerings, kinda old looking and Honda played it a bit conservative in 2012 & 2013. And the Hyundai/Kia vehicles give that youthful impression that used to be exclusively Honda territory. The Forte looks so similar to the Ford Fusion to my eyes...like a mini Fusion just as the new Sentra reminds me of a mini Altima. Similar to what Toyota has been doing for a few years.

Ouch! I see that now.
Oh well, I agree the "normal" options for a new car in 2013 pretty much require the Popular Pkg. I can't imagine not having cruise control and keyless entry.
I really like what I've heard about the new Forte. Particularly the "quietness" of the 2014 model. I'm sure some of the techniques used to quell noise will be passed along to other Hyundai/Kia models in their next generation.

#26 of 40 some of the best interiors

The new Kia Forte demonstrates the big strides made by compact-car interiors in a relatively short time. Its controls are cleanly configured and easy to use, and the carbon fiber-like trim is a sporty, classy touch.
Starting at $15,900, the Forte has the lowest base price in its segment. And yet it delivers premium features, from a straightforward and intuitive communication system to brilliant door trim resembling the layered gills of a shark. Many of the Forte’s materials are upscale enough to warrant placement on luxury vehicles.

Hm... I've been trying to figure it out for a bit now, no luck. I'll see if I can a bit later. Hopefully the icons will come back ASAP.

OK, found the ticket.
Use the "less than" sign
img src="put the url in quotes"
Use the "greater than" sign to close it.
Like this, except with less than/greater than instead of the brackets:

that's okay, but I'm not going to remember this every single time I want to post, so what happened to all the icons that were below this posting box?
