Decent car for the Money - Wish MPG was better
By soxfan99 on
Vehicle
2012 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
Review
Leased car in April 2012. Wanted to give the car a few months of driving before writing a review. Rides and handles great. Great tech options. Build quaility is what you would expect in the price range - It's a 21,000 car(25,800 list) - that being said, you can tell where they cut back. Door handles are one example. As far as the stated MPG, have put 11,000 miles of combined driving, never have gotten above 23-24 mpg. Long highway trips (with cruise) 31-32 mpg. Eco or not does not matter. The dealer does know, they said, nothing they can do. Kia corporate only wants to "talk about it". I bet - now that they are giving fuel credits to some owners of other models.
Favorite Features
Bluetooth, "leather" seats, keyless ignition. Great sized trunk. Head room, leg room.
Suggested Improvements
More realistic gas mileage numbers. Have not met another Optima owner locally who is averaging 26+ with combined driving. In fact, that is usually the first question asked. Take a look at the small details, door handles, console arm rest. Hollow sound when you close the door, or trunk
