2002 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have owned this car for 3 years now, and cant wait for the moment I can get out of it! I spend about $1k in repairs a year on this car, and I'm not talking about routine maintenance. Speaking of that, it doesn't like to go more than 3k miles without an oil change. It needs to be babied. Its a comfortable car and a Nice look, but unreliable. Interior components falling apart/peeling/breaking. Wears tires out like no ones business, but thats due to the factory recall of a rusting sub frame! Hard to find someone that knows how to work on it too... Parts are never available and needs to be ordered. All in all, if you want a cheap car, go Hyundai, my brothers car has lasted way longer than mine

Favorite Features

looks way more expensive than it is. clean looking dash, roomy and comfortable seats.

Suggested Improvements

higher quality components, interior and mechanically. paint is ''soft''

Um why would you rate the car with 4 stars and then write a bad review?
