2012 EX Optima - Amazing Value
By jerryk007 on


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


Now a proud owner for 1 year. Overall average mpg 24.0+. Great ride and I am amazed by the acceleration of this hot 4 cylinder! Interior finish is excellent and the leather is tops. I am still wondering how this KIA is so well priced that anyone would buy a Toyota! Thus far no mechanical or build problems at all.

Cons: Only one! The steering wheel is a bit to "slick" to grip.

Best Features

Style; interior dash and finish. Great gas mileage and amazingly quiet running for an inexpensive vehicle!

Worst Features

Should have a "mute" button for the radio on the steering wheel. Steering Wheel should have an improved binding for gripping the wheel. Passenger seat (manual) should have the ability to raise up 2-3" or come as a standard feature with the EX and up models.
