2004 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

We were going to buy a Kia Rio, but when we saw the Optima, my wife just had to have it. And we lucked out cause the 2004 Optima we bought arrived just the night before. What a bargain!!! For the price difference we definitely made a move up (in size, power and comfort) and we did it without having to fork out the extra 7,000 for a comparable Toyota or Nissan.

Favorite Features

The ride is smooth and quiet. The sound system is A+. The seats are comfortable (the 60/40 rear seats outstanding) and the trunk is CAVERNOUS! Love the new horizontal grille.

Suggested Improvements

Move cruise control to steering wheel.Not complicated but can get dangerous on highway reaching for cruise control button.Area around trunk struts captures leaves/snow/ice. Needs different gasketing system. Light under hood and bigger windshield washer fluid reservoir.
