Great car...but mpg
By coliveri on

Vehicle

2013 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)

Review

I think this car is great. Great handling, acceleration, love the interior and bluetooth, the exterior is sharp and aggressive. BUT the gas mileage is a turn off! Im averaging 26 mpg..on the high way! Ive tried everything. Tried cruse control, driving light footed and watching the instant mpg monitor....all of that with eco mode and still nothing!!! Its becoming very frustrating because first of all this is a 4 cylinder! My old lincoln ls (v8) could get that kind of mileage. Thank god Im leasing this car. Kia stop lying about you're mpg.

Favorite Features

Bluetooth, interior overall, sleek design on the exterior

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage....or just stop lying and post the actual mgp specs. If you say I can get 35 highway I should get somewhere close to that.

I agree, the car is fantastic, but stop lying about the MPG. I get 20 to 22 around town, and believe me, that is with a feather touch. Highway is around 31-32.
