I have enjoyed this car. Equipped just right. Layout is good. Comfortable. Still with all original equipment, except new battery after 4 years.

2010 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this car as as a former rental car in December 2010. I had no significant problems for about a year and then a dieing out problem occurred that required me to go all the way up to a vice president of Kia Motors America (KMA) to get it fixed. This problem required multiple repairs by the KMA engineer for the Eastern United States but it was finally fixed after about a year. My experience is that Kia has a long and difficult warranty. Some minor paint issues also appeared after about 4 years that were not covered by the warranty. As to performance and comfort the car is fine. Update July 2018 and 111,000 miles on odometer: the car is still running fine with only minor paint issues.

2010 Kia Optima LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my 2010 KIA Optima a year ago and I couldn’t be happier.
It was one of KIA’s “rentals” with 12,000 miles on it and in pristine condition inside and out.
I’m getting about 30 mpg around town.
It handles beautifully and I feel safe and secure driving it.
My mechanic was very impressed with it when I took it in for an oil change.
Said I made a smart purchase.
I’m an old woman now, 67, and this will probably be my last car but if I ever have to buy another car I would buy this one in a heartbeat.

2010 Kia Optima SX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

We purchased the Optima about a week ago and I must say... I LOVE IT!
There is enough 'hoots and whistles' to keep me happy and the gas mileage is amazing.
My kids love the sound system, room and comfort, and I honestly couldn't be happier.
It has a lot of of power for highway driving.
Great car for the price.
Highly recommended to those looking for a reliable, economical vehicle!
