How reliable is a Kia Forte?

Is the Kia Forte a good car? I want to buy one for my daughter but I’m worried about it breaking down while she’s away at college. I don’t want her to get stranded in a strange city!

The Kia Forte has good reliability ratings in general, although newer models are generally rated better than older ones. The 2022 model was rated sixth in its class, making it one of the more reliable compact cars on the road.
The Kia Forte also has great ownership costs. Most drivers can expect to pay an average of $451 annually for repairs, which is significantly lower than standard repair costs. If you want a car that doesn’t cost much to own, the Kia Forte is a good choice.
