2006 Kia Optima User Reviews
- $4,772 - $5,951
- No trim specified for this review
- Nice smooth ride, great value
- A few 'extras' left out of the 2006 - but put into the 2006.5
Was torn between the VW Passatt, VW Jetta, and this Kia. Price was the deciding factor as KIA currently has more incentives which I was able to use toward the downpayment.
This is now my 2nd Kia - I purchased a 1995 Kia Sephia new and it didn't meet it's demise until last year. I can be hard on cars -riding the clutch a bit, taking RR tracks and spped bumps a few mph faster than I should etc - so after getting my 1995 to last 10 years with only $500 in maintence (ZERO Warranty work needed) I was more than happy to concider them again.
My new 2006 Optima (LX V6) has a VERY smooth ride - I am quite impressed. I opted for the V6 but also drove a 4C and liked it as well.
There is a 2006 and a 2006.5 - the 2006.5 has a few options that I wanted on the 06 (full side curtain air bags, and traction control) but there weren't as many $$ incentives on the 06.5 as there were on the 06. I also like the body style of the 06 better than the 06.5.
GREAT CAR overall! - Stickered at 21,666 after options I paid 17,898 before Tax, and got $3000 in incentives and $500 in loyalty bonus which brought the price down to 14,400 - making it a sure financial winner over the Jetta and Passat.
