2008 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I own a '08 optima. Was skeptical at first, but after a shake down Cruise of 500 miles, I was hooked. Got 31 mpg new. Only after market addition was a k&n air filter. Got 50.000 out of the original tires and believe it or not the brakes! Have had no major problems and it only left sit once a dead battery! I remember the earlier models and all the problems associated with them. Night and day! Way to go! Would recommend Kia to anybody looking for an inexpensive durable car. BTW mine has over 75,000 on it.

Best Features

auxiliary input, chain driven 4 cyl, a/c, air filtration system

Worst Features

placement of axillary port and cabin filter
