2001 Kia Optima SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


My experience with my '01 optima has not been pleasant. I have had to have both front windows repaired several times and they still don't work properly. My door locks don't work right, I have had to put money into this car hand over fist and now to find out that according to my inspection station (certified kia dealer) that this car is junk because it has a rotted out frame. I will never buy another kia again. I have had nothing but problems with this car since I bought it brand spanking new.

Best Features

My radio, even though the speakers don't work properly.

Worst Features

They need to improve the quality of the frame. They also need to back up their cars by taking care of their customers when a customer calls them with issues. I called directly to Kia for answers and he tried making me feel like I didn't know what I was talking about.
