2018 Kia Forte for Sale near Galveston, TX

2018 Kia Forte for Sale near Galveston, TX2018 Kia Forte S shown with optional features.

As the world of compact cars grows, the 2018 Kia Forte continues to be the perfect vehicle for you. From the safety features and mechanical capabilities to the stunning exterior, you’ll want to be the one slipping into the driver’s seat. You can experience it all on a fun-filled test drive with one of our staff members here at Fredy Kia. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 713-941-0145 to speak with a representative. We look forward to hearing from you!

The engineers at Kia designed this compact car with your safety in mind. The Brake Assist System1 comes standard, and prevents collisions from occurring by alerting you of rapidly stopping vehicles and applying pressure on the brakes when necessary. If you do happen to be in an accident or difficult situation, the Internal Emergency Trunk Release is at your disposal and allows you to open the trunk from the interior of the Forte. The Traction Control System1 is another standard safety feature that helps keep your wheels gripped to the road, so you don’t have to worry about slipping and sliding.

Next, let’s talk about a few of the mechanical features that make driving the 2018 Forte around town more enjoyable. The standard 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with Atkinson Cycle produces a strong 147-hp and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. Not to mention, you’ll spend less of your time and money at the gas station with the thrifty fuel economy of 29/37 MPG city/hwy2 when mated to the 6-speed automatic transmission. In the S trim, you’ll glide over any bump or rut in the road with the sport-tuned suspension, and satisfy your passengers within the cabin with a smooth ride down Seawall Boulevard. We couldn’t forget to mention that the 4-wheel disc brakes let you come to a swift stop when you’re in stop and go traffic.

Last, but definitely not least, the sleek exterior of this compact car will wow you! The available power sunroof lets you feel the wind through your hair on those beautiful warm days. The chrome window molding on the EX trim gives the outside of the Forte a luxurious appearance that you’ve always wanted. In addition to that, the available LED Rear Combination Lamps create an illuminating experience for everyone driving behind you. If course, we must warn you that they might be a little envious!

We know you want to see the 2018 Kia Forte for sale near Galveston, TX, up close and personal here at Fredy Kia! One of our team members would be delighted to explain this compact car in further detail. We’re located at 11711 Gulf Fwy in Houston, TX, and hope to see you walking through our doors soon!

The absolute best car purchase I’ve ever had. Salesman Mario Paniagua is the most informative and caring person I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with while making my car purchase. Mr. Fredy the owner is a real gentleman and leader in the auto industry. He made the auto purchase an amazing experience for myself and my wife. A special thank you to the person that put us all together (Jonathan Yonan). He has gone above his responsibilities to make sure we were pleased. Thanks to Big Papa Gill for the ease in how he took us through the financial paperwork.

Went here to see if I would be able to get out from the ridiculous amount I have upside down. Issac walton assisted me. I knew what I wanted to do was pretty much impossible but issac was very helpful and knowledgeable and tried the best he could to get where I wanted to be on a payment. I'd recommend issac as he is a very honest person and guaranteed to work hard for his customers. I'll be back for sure in the future!

If you are looking for someone genuine, compassionate and not going to tell you false information just to get you to let them run your credit in hopes for a sale!! I would highly recommend seeing Leslie here at Fredy Kia, I luckily got set up with her randomly and I will forever refer her to my friends, family, and so on so forth. I came to her with a legit issue that not a lot of people could understand, judge me, or classify me into one specific category of customers. She did not tell me any false pretenses that would get my hopes up, to later be crushed my a denial or a 700$ monthly payment. Leslie helped me out even after I left the dealership, this women is a real human being who will help you with all her power to 1. Boost your confidence in a time of self destruction/ financial burden/ etc 2. Help you every step of the way to make sure she is helping you not just her paycheck each month Thank you so much Leslie and I cannot express enough how you boosted my confidence in the life event I was going through <3 - Kain

Yesterday was awesome at Fredy Kia!!! I purchased a used car that I love and the customer service just put the icing on the cake. Tucker ( the manager) was nothing short of amazing... he definitely made sure I was taken care of and actually worked out a awesome deal for me which of course everyone wants. I can definitely tell why he is in the position he’s in and the salesman Nelton was so kind and hospitable.. made me and my girls feel comfortable and was super patient with us which is always wanted and needed by a customer. I was only there for about 3 hours but left super excited. And I will definitely refer my family and friends there! We thank the entire staff for their help!

I bought a 2016 Kia Forte on 08/06/19 with Gabby being my salesperson. She was really amazing and had a good humor for my friend and mom who sat there while I was trying to get a car. She made sure that I was going to leave that same day with the car and she was really patient and had us laughing at the same time. I recommend going to her.

I literally had a phone conversation with Frank at 8 am. At 2:30pm I was on my way to the dealership. Frank had gotten me financed, PICKED out my car worked out a deal I hadn't seen in years ( I mean I could pick up cans and pay my car note) Took me to get insurance, had my car detailed and handed me the keys!!! Sadly car dealers/sales people get a bad rep at times. Because he listened to me he came through soaring. He said to me " I wanna help you and I will handle it"...He did just that and whatever he asked of his team they supported his taking care of me.( applauds to my loan specialist Mr. "Schaumberg" himself) The time I spent at the actual dealership was painless great staff, very professional. At least stop by you can trust Frank.
