2006 Kia Optima New EX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I will never own a KIA again. I had to get the AC replaced 2 months after getting it new off the lot took them 4 weeks. I have also had to replace the sun visors 3 times on each side. The visors are only replaced in the first 50K, and I am not going to pay $130.00 for the visor now. Even the dealer says they see them all the time with velcro, tape, and one person stapled them up. The computer says that I am getting 29MPG but I have NEVER gotten it that good. I keep up the maintenance and when I run the numbers while filling up I am getting 19 to 20MPG. I will not even get into how you can't set the castor and camber on the front end. If you are cutting tires you can't fix it.

Favorite Features

It was cheap when I bought it, and it's paid for. It has a good radio.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the visors, teach the computer how to do math. Allow a mechanic to set the caster and camber on the front end. Anti-lock breaks would have been nice. Biggest suggesting I have, is to buy something besides a KIA.
