2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo: Oh, They're Out There...

June 24, 2011


Perhaps you read Kelly's riveting account of the lack of Kias on the roads in Socal. We'll, it just happens that I exchanged nods with the driver of another Optima Turbo this morning on my way to work. Did the same thing last weekend.

So they're out there. And, in Orange County, the Optima Turbo seems to have caught on. I see one every few days. This Satin Metal Optima is more striking than our Corsa Blue example in person. And that's saying something.

Oh, and speaking of color...


My wife thinks the Optima icon which appears in the the car's instrument panel should match its paint color. It does not (see above).

Economies of scale come home to roost.
