Optima EX shortcomings
By altair47 on


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


Car was delivered with a half tank of fuel and empty winshield washer fluid tank. The passenger seat is extremely low, my wife feels like she is sitting on the floor and there is no adjustment up or down? Dealer was not very friendly or helpful. The sales managers personal car was a new Ferrari and he had it parked right in front where all Kia customers had to walk by. Did not look good for KIA.

Best Features

Rear camera, Audio system, hands free phone, styling, paint color (bronze). Heated rear seats, Heated/Cooled front seats.

Worst Features

Be able to open roof sun shade front or back only. The way it is now you have to open both at the same time(it's on a roller). Give power passenger seat up and down controls. Black grille material too shiny, looks cheap. better quality tires would be an improvement. There should bre at least (one) power outlet that stays on when car is turned off. Add donut spare (had to buy my own). LED running lights on all models.
