Used To LOVE My 2012 Optima - Now I HATE It!
By imac7 on

Vehicle

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

Review

2012 Optima looks great; however, on the first day after I bought it, I was driving on freeway (regular freeway speed) and I noticed intermittent wind noise coming in by the top of driver door. I hope it was something that could be fixed. Three dealer appointments (time wasted) one which was arranged by Kia Corporate their bottom line was "normal noise." I owned a Sentra, Accord, Maxima, Camry, and a Pathfinder (which am not counting) and NONE of the cars had this issue. Also, my MPG average is about 22 (Last tank - no change in driving conditions - I got 19+)... MPG was a major factor when I decided to buy this car.

Favorite Features

Exterior looks but front too low.

Suggested Improvements

Intermittent WIND noise when driving. MPG! Seats, especially headrest. Head room. I drive mostly highway and traffic has been good lately but my MPG hasn't improved with mileage as dealer kept telling me.
