|I have a heavy foot, & the kia optima is at its best driving fast||Rear visibility. head room. no height adjustment on passenger seat.|
|Styling - both interior & exterior||Gas mileage is not even close to what i had hoped for|
|Good mpg for a 274 hp engine||Engine power - 4 cylinders; a little sluggish|
|Overall comfort for all occupants||No spare tire! cost me $450 to get donut spare|
|Warranty, miles per gallon||Visibility should be improved to combat blind spot|
|Interior/ exterior styling & trunk space||Excessive road noise, especially water/slush!|
|Overall look-classy & sporty||I shouldn't have to buy a special kia adapter to play my ipod|
|Interior comfort & technology; love the back up camera.||Passenger seat's to low - needs pump like driver's seat|
|The seat moving back to let you out of car easier||Not the fastest turbo / some lag|
|In comparison to the price , the performance & power are beyond expectations.||I would like if it were all wheel drive|
