Find a 2018 Kia Forte5 near Cross Plains, WI

Cross Plains is a beautiful community that has retained that strong sense of pride in rural Americana. A small town nestled on the outskirts of Madison, this is a community where residents know and enjoy helping each other. It's a village characterized by winding country roads, plenty of green spaces just a drive away, and going into the city constitutes a longer highway drive. So when it comes to buying a new vehicle, many Cross Plains residents look for reliability, fuel efficiency, and cargo capabilities. One vehicle that meets all these needs and more is the 2018 Kia Forte5.

The Kia Forte5 is an affordably-priced hatchback that comes with excellent warranties (not that you are likely to need them with this reliable and well-built model) and can handle just about any road conditions. If you like space but don't like the bulky size of an SUV or the limitations of a pickup, then a capable hatchback 2018 Kia Forte5 might just be your dream vehicle for your Cross Plains life. Check out the following key facets of this well-rounded vehicle:

3 Reasons Why the Kia Forte5 is Perfect for Cross Plains Residents

  1. A spirited and fuel-efficient engine. Under the hood of the 2018 Kia Forte5 is a spirited 2.1-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 140 horsepower and 148 pound-foot of torque. That's quite the power for a hatchback of its size, yet it offers Cross Plains owners this without demanding much fuel at all. This hatchback is rated at 25 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway for 28 mpg combined. Add this with a driving range of 370 miles, and you'll really appreciate how far you can travel on your fuel dollar.
  2. Ample cargo space. The hatchback class as a whole was sold to American consumers as a class of vehicles that offers up more cargo possibilities with ease thanks to the rear hatch door that opens up wide. But too many of today's hatchbacks have designs that run counter to that claim, having instead cramped seating and unsatisfying rear cargo space. The 2018 Kia Forte5 is not like this. No, this hatchback doesn't just meet the desires of hatchback buyers; it exceeds them with an incredibly spacious and comfortable rear seat that does not impinge on the ample 23.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind them.
  3. Generous warranty reflective of its reliable design. Do a short Google search on any consumer website and you'll find that the Kia Forte5, as well as most any other Kia vehicles, enjoy a strong reputation of reliability among their owners. While Kias are very affordable, they are not cheaply built and this is reflected in the included Kia warranties - the best in the industry. With the 2018 Kia Forte5, Cross Plains owners enjoy a generous basic warranty of 60 months/60,000 miles as well as a powertrain warranty for 120 months/100,000 miles and a vehicle anti-corrosion warranty (particularly nice for those who spend much time on the Great Lakes) of 60 months/100,000 miles

Your Kia Maintenance Schedule

Finding Your Kia’s Maintenance Schedule

Determining how often you need to have your Kia serviced starts with figuring out the recommended intervals between various types of service. For example, your tires need to be changed a lot more often than transmission fluid but not nearly as often as you should change your oil. You can find more information about the recommended intervals between each type of service by reading your owner's manual or talking to a mechanic.

In addition to keeping up with the little maintenance tasks, you should also have a tune-up done at certain milestones to make sure you're keeping everything in good shape. A lot of mechanics will recommend you have a 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000-mile maintenance appointment at the very least. However, you should never wait until the next maintenance appointment if you think there's something wrong with your Kia.
