2004 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I have read alot of reviews on this car and some are good and some are bad. The ones that are good i hope it keeps going good for you. Well i have an 04 kia optima and I thought it was going to be a good car. I thought wrong , I have had nothing but problems with it since i got it. I have had it for a year and a half and bought it with 78k on it and now it has 99k on it. I have had the timing belt replaced along with the crank sensor, the cluthch has been replaced in it , 4 new tires put on it and thats because the control are was bent and it had to be replaced, it had had the fuel pump replace twice and the fuel pump assembly replace twice and its in the shop right now getting that done.

Best Features

You better keep a check on the oil cause it seems to be going somewhere after a while after it has been changed. clear coat is coming off of it . i dont recommend any one buying these cars . im still paying on it and im going to try to figure out how to get rid of it.
