Second car, Love it!

2009 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Great Car! Bought it Oct. 11, 2010. Haven't had any problems with the car. It's the first 5 speed I've owned and I love it. It's pretty quick and fast, I can downshift to third and pass cars with no problem. I once had a loaded car (at least 800ibs extra weight), driving up steep hills and still got 25MPG. I feel I got a lot for what I paid, just a little over 12,000.
Favorite Features
Manual!! XM radio, aux and iPod input, LOTS of leg room in the back seat. I'm 6' feet tall with long legs and drive with my seat far back, and there is still plenty of room behind me. Lots of trunk space.
Suggested Improvements
No cruise control, no remote entry, steel wheels (just how it came. Want to get alloy.), even for 175hp it still seems a little slow to accelerate. What's odd was my 2006 Honda accord, same size engine with 166hp and about the same weight was so much quicker. But I guess that's a Honda for you. It's still a fast car noon the less, just not so much in 1st and 2nd.
