Kia has come a long way

2012 Kia Optima SX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


This car is awesome.
I admit it was hard wrapping my brain around buying a Kia, but I am sure glad I did.
This car is not only sexy it 174 hp when you need them.
Only downside I have yet to see 34 mpg as advertised.
The highest I've gotten in 5 months and 6000 miles is 31 mpg, still better than my previous car which was the 6 Cylinder Pontiac G8.
That only got 24 mpg and only had 254 hp and after 28000 miles I started having engine problems.

Best Features

Horse power and looks
