2005 Kia Optima EX V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Bought it in 2012, second hand, for $3000. Can't complain. A little low on MPG though...
Very luxurious, but after 50k miles starts to have lots of issues.
Luxurious design, comfort, soft/smooth ride, silent, floats over the road, soft suspension, good powerful and low in vibration motor, automatic/manual transmission; Disc brakes
Bad quality radio and (papercone) speakers, manual part of the transmission can get wrecked when accidentally upshifting 2 gears, automatic transmission can't handle neutral to gear when rolling very well, gas guzzler, rubber blocks upon which the motor rests wear out fast, and are expensive, seats are too wide.
Paint chips off when washing with a high pressure washer, or even with a garden hose, both on the rims and on the gas cap.
