Trading Camaro In For This....

I've seen some ads recently for the new Kia Forte Koup. It's actually pretty attractive. My wife wants me to trade my new Camaro in for one of these because it looks better and gets better gas mileage. What do you all think?














I also told my wife to go fly a kite!!!! No WAY am I trading in my Camaro for this car although I have to say, this Kia is by far the coolest I've ever seen.....It ain't a Camaro in any way shape or form!

I think you need to go and take your wife to get her eyes examined and then go and get her head examined.

Well, if you squint a little...and paint on the black rally stripes...and get an eye infection...and get stabbed in your good eye with a rusty nail...

It might sort of look like your Camaro.

It is sharp though...looks like a sportier civic.

It looks like a Focus. I cant believe people actually spend money on KIA's in the first place. Killed In Action......hmmm no thanks. Plus its a pos korean junk mobile. Might as well be a Daewoo.

Kia/Hyundai is nothing more than a cloner of other peoples ideas without coming up with any of their own. Remember they were the absolute bottom of the barrel for a car 15 years ago. They've come a ways sinces then, but I have no respect for them and their blatent ripoffs of others designs. Their forthcoming Equus brand good case in point

I would never step into that arena of talking about another mans spouse and I find myself thinking there is a medical reason she is confused. I think she has severely bumped her head and needs medical attention if that car is more attrative to her then the Camaro. She has to be suffering from some form of serious delirium induced by blunt forced trauma.

I was at Autozone on Saturday picking up plugs and wires for the GFs 4Runner. When I walked out to the car there was a greasy little guy doing the walk-around. He asked how much I paid for it. I told him I would have paid a lot more than I did. He laughed and told me he crossed shopped the Camaro but ended up buying a "Kia coupe" for 22k. I'm assuming he was referring to the one posted in this thread. Said it goes real fast for a 4-banger. He finally got it up to 100MPH on a straight-away. Sweeeet, drive safe pal.

I almost spit up my Cheerios... A damn Hyundai is the worse thing on the planet next to a Toyota. Not to mention.. that that Forte is a DIRECT rip off of yet another EXISTING car... the Honda Civic.

Don't like Kia's, or Hunnies. I do like the looks of the Civic coupes though...owned 1 coupe & 2 4-doors in my life. Good little cars. The coupes are pretty hot looking - especially in black, tinted windows, Camaro stripes, 6.2 V8 engine...oh wait, that's my car!

Make a great winter beater...but I would not sell your Camaro for it.

Tell your wife you saw a hot chick that you think you want to trade HER in on...see how that goes...or a threesome

Now that you guys mention it, it does closely resemble a Honda Civic, doesn't it?

Uh. Yea.

Are you being serious? You just noticed this? Most of Kia's vehicles greatly resemble vehicles made by other manufacturers.

You guys say what you want about Kia, but im happy for them and I am happy for the plant that hey just built down here in Georgia that just hired over 3800 people that were out of work and is reviving a small town that was in dire need. Go KIA!!! Ford and Gm closed plants in Ga Kia gave quite a few unemployed people work
