  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Fortunately for a number of Kia customers, the Korean brand is offering a software update that will bring the latest technology to some of its older vehicles—going as far back as the 2014 model year.

Limited to navigation-equipped models, the software can be transplanted into 2014-2016 Soul hatchbacks; 2015-2016 Optima, Optima Hybrid, Sedona, and Soul EV models; and 2016 Sorento crossover SUVs.


Kia notes that it will email customers with instructions on how to update their vehicle’s software to gain access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto by the end of the month. Currently, the 2017 Kia Forte is one of the 10 least expensive new cars available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as consumers can purchase a Forte sedan with the technology for as little as $20,050.
