KBSmith- I actually traded my Acura TSX in for an SX Optima... & I also have to agree with what your post states. However, the SX has the turbo, which states that the highway MPG suffers -1 MPG (34 MPG) than the EX non-turbo. Owning the car for two weeks and logging over 1k miles over two weeks... I am only receiving 27 mpg with 75% highway driving. I'm hoping the break-in period improves slightly-keeping in mind that I drive 75(ish) mph in Pittsburgh. Even though our TSX's were valued at 20/29? when I received a combined average of 27 in my TSX. My point being, 20/29 should not equal 22/34 (Turbo--> 22/35 non-turbo). Other than that I truly love the car thus far. Nevertheless, I have received jokes from friends stating its a "KIA" but, in reality if the badge was not there, they'd think its a higher-end luxury vehicle. My only concern is the reliability in 4 years. My 04' TSX approaching 100k miles still drove as if it had 20k miles....I'm hoping the quality does not suffice after the 4 years I have stated. I questioned myself...am I really trading an Acura for a Kia? For peace of mind, I had talked to a customer after I signed papers who had traded in a Lexus ES350 for an Optima SX and came back for an Sorrento SX for a his wife (family SUV)...and he stated that he couldn't be happier. As I have previously stated, lets hope that the quality lasts-and if so I'd be concerned for other automakers.Report it
