Review

I believe that a Kia Optima is the best combination of styling, fuel economy, and reliability on the road. This is my second Optima. It's perfect, just like the first one I owned. Anyone looking for maximum value in a mid-size sedan should look carefully at the Optima.

Review

Check the road driving expirience.. Mine had a tendency to drift around, just a bit at 70 + ... I had the alignment set a bit more "toe out" and it has helped. There is NO spare so keep those tires fresh. Eco drive mode is noisy and does not seem to add any MPG. Be sure to change the shift modes ...ONLY when stopped and before starting the engine, with the ignition ON.. or you will get a whining sound until you change the mode back to eco and do it right. I only got one remote so I had to buy one from the factory in Korea to keep from getting ripped off. ($78). Also check with a locksmith who programs them and laser cuts the emergency key.. costs $40 .....as opposed to $65+ at the dealers. Sad to say... that my Azera was a better car with a 3.8 V6 that would really go and was whisper quiet ...and got 27 or better MPG..this Optima's wimpy L4 barely gets the job done and get 29.5MPG. Thank goodness I am getting older and really don't care.
