Very Poor Gas Mileage
By winks1 on


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


I have had my 2013 Kia Optima for 6 months have over 15,000 mile on it do mostly highway driving have yet to get better that 26 mpg. Most of the time averaging low 20's. Although it is a beautiful car I would not buy it again.
I would go with a car with more proven gas mileage. I Was getting 45+ with my VW Jetta TDI, Will probably go back to them next time.

Best Features

Heated sterring wheel, wonderful on cold mornings.

Worst Features

Improve gas mileage or at least live up to rated mileage. I feel rated mileage is an outright lie.

Comparing the mileage of a diesel to gas engine is never a "fair fight"; doesn't matter what brand of car being discussed.
