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


so far no problems! I must agree with the road noise though. I never owned a Kia before, but if they just get the wheels/road noise and (my preference, wheel well gap shortened) it would be nearly perfection. On soft pavement its extremly quiet, on rough/normal pavement it really makes me consider buying some better tires and im leasing it :/... Anyway, fuel economy no matter how much i try i cant seem to do 22 city (LA stop go traffic: 15-18 :( but on the dealer paper it states actual milage may be 18 in fine print) but i can definitly do 34+ highway. Overall, not upset everything works well, still get compliments and stares every day Wish the logo changed w the designs! i'll update at 25k.

Best Features

Looks, power, options, warrenty,

Worst Features

bring in the parking sensors for the front and back. theres a slight blind spot in the front corners. Back up camera lines should move with the steering wheels..like the K5s in Korea :/ and heated steering wheel for SX...can eaisly be put near the traction control button.
