Purchased As New
Bought a Toyota in 2009, bought for the brand. Hated everything about it, felt cheap, no options, service department was a joke, things kept breaking in it, traded it in at only 30,000 miles. This is my second car I'm only 20 and so far this cars been great for me, fully loaded with features at around 7,000 miles right now. I get 1 mpg better city than advertised and highway I've gotten it up to 35/36, I baby my car though, but when I do get on it, it puts you in your seat a little. Drive with a lead foot and expect around 19mpg city. and low 30s The styling on this car is awesome its really a nice car to look at (figures the guy who designed this used to work for audi) I get a lot of questions about my car and a lot of "thats a kia?". The interior is clean and quite, even at a fast cruising speed the wind and engine noise is so minimal, rides smooth and the handling is great. I test drove a lot of other cars before making my decision on this car, (vw passat tdi, vw jetta, ford fusion, ford taurus, audi a4, mazda 3, toyota camry, toyota prius, honda accord) and for the price I got it, there was no better value than the Optima, both in performance in features. I really can't say enough about this car other than try it for yourself. KIA is a seriously potential company that should have the Toyota and Honda on their heels. You will be pleasantly surprised.
