The Car that will surprise you
By Aaron on
2002 Kia Optima LX V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Just a note to those thinking of buying this car. I owned my KIA Optima for 4 years. I recently was rear ended by a full size truck traveling 40+ miles per hour, totaling my KIA. I was amazed at how it reacted. The rear completely crumpled leaving the passenger compartment intact. Even the police officer was shocked at how well it handled and that I was able to walk away. This car has been the safest, lowest cost of ownership, and most fun sedan I have owned. I never had any problems with my car, I put on 96,000 miles on it, and tearfully will have to say goodbye to it. I recommend this car to anyone looking. I am going to purchase the new KIA Optima this week. Enjoy!
Comfortable seats, powerful engine, high end fabrics and electronics. Easy to care for engine.
Fuel door button is in wrong spot. When driving I would frequently press my leg against the door and release the fuel door.
