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


I bought this car two years ago as my first car, i got it for 400 bucks all smashed up. i fixed it at 75k miles and ive had no problems at all except crank sensor and belt squeak. I drive it pretty rough, but i perform all needed routine maintenance. it now has 86k miles and has served me well.

Best Features

its nice and simple to use and isnt very expensive to own, i put premium in it and i can get 400+ miles on a tank.

Worst Features

engine bay upgrades, everything is shoved together. wasnt easy to rebuild.
