2007 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I purchased the Optima LX (4cyl) with 45,100 miles. I have 52,000 now. It's been mostly back and forth to work (16 miles each way) and one trip to Michigan which was 1,000. On the trip I averaged 33 mpg with the AC running. I think the car is made solid. People have told me Kia's are reliable, we will see I have a 5 yr loan on it. I have an issue with the dome light coming on by itself, which temporarily I fixed by removing the light bulb. Handles nice, acceleration is awesome (esp in manual mode), braking is good (only had to stomp the pedal once).

Best Features

Entry level sound system! Blue lit instrument lighting, value, HVAC blower motor (have had cars that barely even moved the air), looks of a more expensive car, insurance cost, 2 power points, spacious interior, high beam coverage

Worst Features

Key fob button layout, better back support, standard fog lights, low beams poor.
