2008 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

iv had my car for just over a year, i bought it off my dad and he got it new in 08! in the last year i have had nothing but problems with it, first it was struts and sway bar links and bushings, then wheel bearing, and now the newest thing is my headlights like to burn out, replaced the passenger one 4 times now, at $25 a bulb for h11b its getting expensive, had it to the dealership and they want me to spend a bunch of $ to replace the headlamp assembly! iv been reading up on this and it seems it was a real issue in some of the older optimas, 02 especially! oh yeah, when i had it in there to look at headlight they told me the shift module had to be replaced, at $700 i passed, NOT IMPRESSED!!

Best Features

the car drives well on the highway! 30-35 mpg with 87 NO alcohol, if im using the 10% blend that most gas stations have now i get 23-25 only!!

Worst Features

warranty the car forever cause as soon as the car hit 100k i have had to put over $2000 into it and that number is still climbing! doing the altinator tomorrow to see if that makes the headlights stop blowing up!!!
