The Optima is a great car! I've had only minors problems (driver's side window does not open) but overall this car is very durable. Its V6 is powerful on the highway and can get you past other vehicles pretty quickly. It has a sporty feel to it and the steering is precise. The cabin is very spacious, making it comfortable on long road trips. Overall, you can't go wrong with this vehicle. The Kia Optima is a very solid car!
Steering, acceleration, comfort, exterior style.
Slightly mismatching interior materials on models with tan interior, gas mileage could be better, engine can be noisy when accelerating.
