2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo: What Will You Pay?

December 01, 2011

This is not our long term 2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo even though it is the same color. I took this picture in the Kia of Cerritos show room yesterday while I was waiting for an oil change. This baby had a sticker price of $30,000. If you're so excited by the giant bow on top, and you're thinking of buying this for someone for Christmas, the True Market Value price is only $300 under the sticker price. Not much of a discount, although you could probably get a better price by going through the internet department.

Everyone on staff loves the Optima, and I really enjoyed my two nights behind the wheel. In the past, when you thought about a Kia, you assumed you would get a bargain. This car has a lot of value for the money but the price ain't cheap.
