Really Fun To Drive
By mswhitfield on


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


2.5mths and almost 3k miles, I am still enjoying my Spicy Red Optima. (Midlife crisis? Maybe) After over 7yrs in a Chevy Equinox, off the showroom floor, that I soon came to loathe, that's an understatement. I had a Lexus in mind, but the SX blew me away. Kia has come a long way from their 'buy one get one free days'.

Best Features

Style, feature, options, price. Favorites are panoramic roof and heated/cooled seats.

Worst Features

All that glitters is not gold. It actually took 2.5mths to realize that I do not have DRL's. I see that it was previously offered and now offered in 2013. Who does that? Also my bluetooth will not stay connected and my phonebook will not stay loaded. I had Kia ck, even had cell provider ck, went thru factory reset, etc. It is NOT my phone, as suggested by the service member. I've googled and seen the only way issue has been resolved is w new 'head unit'. Even w the deal I received, I feel cheated.
