This is an sx. The ex has side walls around the windows, no fog lights,
etc. Hope ya didn’t sell it for the price of the ex:0

Luis Jr. says:

can someone please explain to me whats the difference between the ex
version, regular version (if there is) , and the sx?

rontonkinkia says:

The Bluetooth on the NEW models (2011 Sorento so far) is able to stream
your music from your phone!

rontonkinkia says:

It’s a leaf blower in the background. We were getting ready for a Corporate
inspection. I didn’t start the car until late in the video.

Drool drool, slobber slobber! EX model shown, SX has larger silver and
black wheels.

@CalicoatMaker Kia has begun investing a bit in the US but don’t kid
yourself here. The Forte is built in Korea, designed by a German,
engineered by Koreans. You did give the dealership owner and the salesman
some $ but that’s about all. Most of the profit is going directly to korea
for the forte

rontonkinkia says:

Supply and demand I guess. If they are the only one with the supply they
can demand more profit. When you go to buy one just say that you already
talked to ___ (their competitor) and tell them they offered $200 over
invoice…

rontonkinkia says:

Thank you, let me know if you have any more questions. Happy Holidays!

rontonkinkia says:

I haven’t driven a KOUP SX 6-speed yet but I would imagine that the Koup
and Sedan SX share the same manual transmission. It was not too fun to
drive in Downtown Portland on wet roads because of this Clutch issue. Let
it out too early and it dies let it out too high and the tires spin, then
traction control kicks on… Really fun on the highway though! I am glad
that Kia is finally stepping up their aftermarket support. These cars have
A LOT of potential.

Sedan

danieleunbinjeong says:

im thinking to get this as my first car.. hows engine sound like??

CalicoatMaker says:

the iPod cable from KIA is totally worth it (like $29?) If you have a door
or trunk open and hit the LOCK remote, the car locks the doors AFTER you
close them! I love that! You can also prevent the dome lights from coming
on when you shut off the car or open the door (I HATE lights in my face)
The EX is cheap, sedan even cheaper, but trust me you’ll LOVE the SX and
its not that much more. I hated the cloth seats but the leather was more
comfortable. Red stitching on the seats!

rontonkinkia says:

Hey there. I’ve been wanting to get one up, I haven’t forgot about you. We
got 4″ of snow yesterday and it’s raining again today. Be patient young
grasshoppa 🙂

ladyyuna2000 says:

Nice looking car I am getting a new car next year and I am deciding if I
should get this car or a honda civic coupe.

rontonkinkia says:

Will do!

CalicoatMaker says:

I own a blck 6-speed manual 173hp (2.4L). All I did was put in a K&N air
filter, wow! 6-speed fun to drive, but I should have got the manual & put
in a slightly higher stall speed. You have to put in the clutch SOONER
because of an inertia problem with the heavy crank pulley…but a 1-lb
aftermarket pulley fixes it totally AND adds a hella lot of power
(kiaforteforum users did this) MANY aftermarket parts AND KIA is releasing
racing parts too in 2010!!! This KILLS the Honda! Drive one today!

BrownBomber92181 says:

Did you get the six speed?

drakhar0 says:

hey man great walkaround, i had a question does the speakers that light up
with the beats come in the EX auto or is it only for the SX and what about
the rims, are the ones shown in the commercials only in the SX? Im from
Canada so it might be different or something its great that youre replying
to all the comments btw

anthonyWeightgainer says:

Hey ROnton! It’s me ANthony! Still no video for the Koup SX? i’ve been
waiting for it since you posted this video! AYYAYAYA

Nick Volkov says:

thx dude. Also when i looked at his car, it has lots of space in the trunk.
So i can put a big subwoofer=) + it has lots of space in the back!!! which
is crazy ! because its a koup ( u know what i mean). When i put my seat all
the way, there is sill lots of place for the passenger behind driver.

GeneralHoohah says:

Why aren’t any of the Kia dealerships getting the 2.4’s? I really like the
look of this car on paper and the reviews, but I want to test drive them
both. I haven’t had a chance to test drive either yet. I’m probably going
to buy a car sometime in March… do you think my local Kia dealerships
will get any of the 2.4 automatics in by then for people to look at, on the
lot and test drive?

Robert Bell says:

wait…who makes a car without air conditioning

rontonkinkia says:

The new 2011 Sorento is able to stream music through Bluetooth, so no need
for the cable or a flash drive. I wish they would have released that for
the Soul and Forte… I can’t wait to see a few performance parts! I heard
a few month ago that they were going to release a Supercharger that IF
installed by a Kia Tech it wouldn’t affect warranty!

bigcrowfly says:

Does the car have bodyside molding, and if not, is it a regularly stocked
dealer installed option? I did not see a temp guage on the dashboard. does
it have one?

rontonkinkia says:

I like it alot, can’t say I love it. But like it A LOT when we have some
more power (250-300 HP) I might be able to say I love it.

wsm918 says:

i bought spicy red koup today!! awesome car !!

rontonkinkia says:

Haha it’s not my car, this is for Ron Tonkin Kia, a Dealership in Oregon .
But no problems, we have sold a ton of them and haven’t had one come in for
service OTHER than the regular stuff and the Computer Update. I had one
customer that needed her new Blackberry hooked to the bluetooth, thats it.

iRaceBeetles says:

Is there a Cold Air Intake for this car out yet?

rontonkinkia says:

This one does not have the bodyside moldings. It hasn’t been released to us
yet. There is a full lip kit, lowering springs and possibly a supercharger
kit on its way. It doesn’t have a Temperature Gauge, there is a digital
screen built into the dash that you can get all kinds of info from. Temp,
Instant MPG, Avg. MPG and so on.

rontonkinkia says:

Nice choice, for the price the Forte is the best out there. You can’t touch
a nice Civic for that kinda money. The VW is probably too much money as
well.

rontonkinkia says:

I can’t confirm or deny the reprogramming or electronic shifting. I know on
these transmissions that they actually learn how you drive to try and get
you better mileage. It usually takes about 1000 miles or so for it to be
“broken in” and learned your style. If you drive differently everytime you
get in, it will probably have trouble.

rontonkinkia says:

The silver pieces are removable for paint!!! You could color match them to
the paint color or match them to the other black on the wheels. Nice option!

jtimberlake255 says:

@spforsupergringo1980 mee tooo! cant wait

Hipocrates88 says:

This car its amazing i love it…!!!!

rontonkinkia says:

Yes PLENTY of room for a sub or two. 2 12s easy! And yes they designed the
car very well, leg room is great! There is more room in the back of this
coupe than the Rio sedan!

rontonkinkia says:

Nice, fun car to drive! Looks good too!

rontonkinkia says:

Sweet!

rontonkinkia says:

No 6-speeds yet. We have 5 SX Automatics, no manuals yet 🙁

soeasypls says:

Whens the sx walk around!

sasaew says:

looks very nice !!

CalicoatMaker says:

KIA factory is releasing a line of performance parts AND in the recent
“postcard” survey, they asked if I’d be interested in a turbo, a 200HP or
300HP engine, and a 300HP AWD! Still love my KIA, its a growing community
already. My whole life I’ve fought buying “foreign” (designed and
engineered in the USA, sold by Americans, serviced by Americans, and the
new SUV will be built in Atlanta!) and never considered buying a new car!
Nice car, DRIVE ONE! USB works off flash drive too lol

rontonkinkia says:

Engine sounds good, needs a free’er flowing exhaust. 156 HP on the EX and
173 HP on the SX. It’s quick!

Nick Volkov says:

i am getting it as my 1st car. I amde really big reasearch and this car i
da SHIT for its price. but 2010 VW golf does not seem beed at all

Nick Volkov says:

yeei feel u. And i really like the design of the car ( interior +
exterior). It is a really sporty car. And what about sound system. Is it
good or its weak?
