I just noticed...
...that my Kia Forte has a 160MPH speedometer - I haven't tried to disprove it, but I suspect it's just a little optimistic... LOL

RE: I just noticed...
I test drove a Forte a few weeks ago and noticed that speedometer. I did not test that part.

yeah, do believe thats just a bit optimistic for sure....just cause a speedo has it does not mean it can or should.

RE: I just noticed...
What you have described coincides with the "Big Bang Theory". It's quiet, other than screaming, all the way to the bottom. Wink

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather - not screaming in panic like the other folks in his car...
