2012 Kia Optima SX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

I have a black on black fully loaded 2012 SX. I paid $30k. I have had about 3 months with 3500 miles on it( I don't drive it when there is snow, sand, etc. on the road) Great: Awesome exterior look, a real eye turner. It looks like Audi BMW, but $20k less. Performance-unbelievable - corners on rails, and there is no turbo lag. Bad Horrible actual( total miles/ gallons use) fuel economy compared what is advertise 24/34. I actual get about 24MPG ALL highway driving like a grandma. Fuel economy computer is not accurate. Narrow bucket seats, slightly tight on my shoulders Poor wheel well insulation. When driving on snow, gravel, sand, it very loud inside
