Not worth the money
By Jessica on


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


I bought this car brand new off the showroom floor. Immediately we had some small issues but nothing major. After owning it for about 3 years and having more warranty problems, my car spent 6 months in the shop. So many things were replaced it's hard to remember. There were transmission problems, computer problems, speaker/radio problems, window and lock problems, and engine problems to name a few. Due to the horrible depreciation on the car, we were only just now able to get rid of it without going into neg. equity. My advice, stay away, there's a reason for the warranty.

Best Features

It was roomy and had nice trunk space.

Worst Features

Everything mechanical.
