2012 EX Amazing
By jerryk007 on


2013 Kia Optima EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


The Optima EX sedan is an amazing value automobile that I cannot still believe that this vehicle can be built for the cost!
Great style; excellent interior design; dash assembly perfectly fit and easy to read; great leg room in rear and front; superior fit and finish for a mid sized sedan. Quiet ride-Yes-acceleration of a V6 in an in-line 4 YES! Changed oil to synthetic. I would highly recommend as one of "the" best in its' class!

Best Features

Dashboard layout-Excellent Steering wheel controls - great and lit too! Creature features aplenty for the cost. Exterior styling-Classic and will last as opposed to Sonata. Leather upholstery is exceptional in this class.

Worst Features

Needs a "real spare tire". Better "passenger seat" adjustments. Rear view from drivers perspective needs improvement. Fold down Rear seating for more trunk space when needed. (plenty big for most)

The rear seat *does* fold down... Totally agree on the front passenger seat adjustment. I have a 2012 and have the same complaint.
