2012 Kia Optima EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Posted a review shortly after I purchased this EX with Premium (no turbo, no nav). Love this car more every day.
Just back from a 3-day road trip; mostly highway miles - averaging 36.3 mpg. Woo hoo! Front driver's seat is SO comfy, love the stereo and a/c and the pano roof. Lost a star for comfort only because the front passenger seat is SO low (I feel like "Kilroy was here" when I ride on the passenger side). Otherwise, loving this car.

Best Features

Fuel economy, front seat comfort (love the cooled seats, too!), pano roof, stereo, heated steering wheel was great in the winter months. Handled great in the snow, too.

Worst Features

Front passenger seat is ridiculously low. Needs to either be set up higher, or add the power to raise it.
