Description: Used 2014 Kia Optima EX for sale - $16,998, 91,584 miles with Premium Package, Leather Seats, Panoramic Sunroof, Infinity Sound System, Rear View Camera, Front Seat Heaters
Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.5 reviews) This car is super smooth to drive and silent. The SX version comes loaded with a turbo engine and technically all the bells and whistles. Since it comes with leather seats the front ones can be individually heated/cooled and the rear one can be heated if needed. I've already drove it on 9 hour-long trips from Austin TX to Memphis TN and can't be happier with the performance, fuel efficiency, smooth drive and a great look that make people turn to see it. The only cons I personally have for this car are these features that I'd love to have in this car, however they were not a deal breaker: 1) It doesn't have the remote start feature. 2) The windshield wipers are not automatic. 3) It doesn't come with steering wheel heater/warmer.

Description: Used 2020 Kia Optima LX for sale - $22,998, 11,954 miles with Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera, Cruise Control, Alloy Wheels, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control
Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) The car has a nice look and beautiful interior. However, in less than a year I have had many mechanical issues with the car. At one point I took it to CarMax for service and the service center could not find anything wrong with it. I immediately took it to the Kia dealership who found the alternator was not working, all the filters needed change, along with the windshield wipers. I have also had to get a brand new battery, the rear camera is constantly not working, and the Park shift does not lock properly. All of this is happening on a car that I bought with under 25,000 miles on it, which tells me that a mechanical inspection was not performed.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Red Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.6 reviews) I loved my experience at CarMAx. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted. The car seemed perfect! It has been a couple months and there are some issues that have surfaced. Within the first 30 days the car was in their shop more than I had it. My experience at the store was fabulous. Just wish I did not let it blind the fact that it is in fact a used car even if it only had 30k miles on it.

About the Kia Optima

Vehicle Summary

If you're in the market for a spacious sedan with plenty of features and options for customization, the Kia Optima may be worth a look! This four-door, mid-size sedan is a popular choice among young professionals, couples, and small families alike. Since its inception in 2000, the Kia Optima has seen numerous changes in terms of its body styling, trim offerings, and available features. Today, it is in its fourth generation of production and continues to be a top contender in its class.

2010 - Present Kia Optima Trim Configurations

For the debut of the third-generation Kia Optima in 2010, the sedan saw a sleeker and sportier body style that buyers enjoyed. For this generation of Optima, the standard engine across all trim levels was also upgraded to a 2.4L four-cylinder engine. This was also the first generation to see a hybrid trim offered starting with the 2011 model year.

Throughout this generation, there are some changes from year to year in terms of trims offered and standard features.Review the basics below to compare what's included across various Kia Optima trim levels and model years.

Super smooth ride for a fairly decent price

This car is super smooth to drive and silent. The SX version comes loaded with a turbo engine and technically all the bells and whistles. Since it comes with leather seats the front ones can be individually heated/cooled and the rear one can be heated if needed. I've already drove it on 9 hour-long trips from Austin TX to Memphis TN and can't be happier with the performance, fuel efficiency, smooth drive and a great look that make people turn to see it. The only cons I personally have for this car are these features that I'd love to have in this car, however they were not a deal breaker: 1) It doesn't have the remote start feature. 2) The windshield wipers are not automatic. 3) It doesn't come with steering wheel heater/warmer.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: Lots of room
  • Technology and Entertainment: All cool features included: GPS navigation, Bluetooth connection, Satellite radio, rear view camera, individual air conditioning controls for driver and passenger, panoramic roof
  • Cabin Noise: no noise at all

Cons

  • Styling: It could have remote start, automatic windshield wipers and steering wheel warmer

- Ricardo Leon, 2012 Kia Optima

Experience great! Car great-ish!

I loved my experience at CarMAx. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted. The car seemed perfect! It has been a couple months and there are some issues that have surfaced. Within the first 30 days the car was in their shop more than I had it. My experience at the store was fabulous. Just wish I did not let it blind the fact that it is in fact a used car even if it only had 30k miles on it.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy:

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: The whole system is electrical so there has been times that it has just started flashing or won't start the first time. Sunroof is glitchy. Side door sensor went out again after the 30 day period.

- Callaway Kirkland, 2015 Kia Optima

Good car for the price

The car has a nice look and beautiful interior. However, in less than a year I have had many mechanical issues with the car. At one point I took it to CarMax for service and the service center could not find anything wrong with it. I immediately took it to the Kia dealership who found the alternator was not working, all the filters needed change, along with the windshield wipers. I have also had to get a brand new battery, the rear camera is constantly not working, and the Park shift does not lock properly. All of this is happening on a car that I bought with under 25,000 miles on it, which tells me that a mechanical inspection was not performed.

Pros

  • Styling: I love the color and sleek stile.
  • Interior Space: It is spacious and comfortable for the back seat passengers.
  • Technology and Entertainment: I like all the technology options, especially the phone blue tooth and the many channels I can save.

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain: I have had the car only 9 months and I already have spent nearly $2k in repairs.
  • Visibility: It does have a bad blind spot, especially on the passenger side.
  • Cabin Noise: It is not as quite as I would have liked. When I drive on the highway I have to turn the volume up.

- Elsa Flores, 2014 Kia Optima
