2011 Kia Optima EX Turbo 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I was so excited when I puchased my Kia Optima last June. However, that quickly changed. Two weeks after purchase, the turbo blew out while we were on vaction. It took forever to be fixed because parts on a new car were not readily avaiable. Once we got it back, the Turbo blew out AGAIN in less than a month.
Not to mention that the alignment has been out since I bought the car. The Turbo hasn't blown out since the 2nd failure, but the alignment continues to be out, even after multiple attempts to fix it. I'm tired of fighting the steering wheel to stay on the road.
The car looks slick, and has cool features, but I can't keep this one.
Looking for another car.

Best Features

Heated/cooled seats, panoramic sunroof

Worst Features

Fix the alignment issues, and make sure that new cars are thoroughly tested so that major failures do not occur when the car is in the consumer's hands.
