2004 Kia Optima LX V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


I bought it used with 67,948 miles on it. Replaced transmission fluid and stock Infinity stereo with pioneer DEH- 2200UB and boom it sounds great with stock speakers and tweeters. Engine goes silent after 5 minutes of drive. I get about 23-27 mpg on regular commute. My Optima has California state emissions and don't have to worry about timing belt change until 105,000 miles Last time it averaged 30 mpg on my way to philadelphia from pittsburgh, 356 miles on a v6 and 30 mpg, what more do you want?

Best Features

Feel of a big car, features, Tiptronic shift, comfortable, smoother engine, projector headlamps, ice cold air conditioning, no timing belt change required before 105,000 miles :D

Worst Features

paint quality, keyfobs and AWD
