Holy Smokes - This is NOT ur Mother's KIA!
By jerryk007 on


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


A bit apprehensive at first! After researching and viewing the Hyundai products i.e. Sonata, Elantra & KIA I became convinced that the KIA was amazing! The value for the $$$ was almost unbelievable. Current incentives also played a roll. But after 10 1/2 years with a Nissan Maxima that served me very well at 101K Miles this cars design and finish compared to the Sonata, Camry, Altima & Honda won hands down. The leather interior is the best in class! I am a huge fan and the creature features are just enough!
Also ride is very responsive and pretty damn quiet for its' cost!

Best Features

Homelink, Instrument panel and design; Leather upholstery; Comfortable Seats & Great Radio with Sirius! Blue Tooth.

Worst Features

Optional Passenger power seat with EX. Memory Seat adjustments. Suggest broader options packages that offer certain amenities without the need to spend big to obtain them.
