Enjoy your new car... Question, do you know what changes, if any, were done to the 2013.. Any new colors, new features, revised lights?Report it
I don't know if there are any equipment changes or not. The colors appear to be the same. All I know is the seats are way better than they were back in 2011 when we were considering Kia among six other cars. The seats (hard as rocks) and the road noise knocked Kia off the list. The 2013 EX has very comfortable seats, and is much quieter inside. We purchased a spare tire kit from the dealer and the purchase, assembly and installation in the trunk cost about $210 with tax. Even with this added cost, we paid a competitive or better price for the car.Report it
The spare tire kit with jack, lug wrench, wheel, tire and tool organizer is available from Kia. You can google ' kia optima spare tire 17" ' and find it from online dealers. My dealer's parts department has the kit. The tire has to be mounted on the wheel and balanced.Report it
Have they improved the paint process on the 2013 models? Prior they were just using two clearcoats and not enough baking time thus leaving orange swirls. This leaves the car vulnable to chips.Report it
The paint looks fine.Report it
