Description: Used 2013 Kia Optima EX for sale - $13,998, 48,555 miles with Premium Package, Leather Seats, Panoramic Sunroof, Infinity Sound System, Rear View Camera, Front Seat Heaters
Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.543 reviews) Love the car! Sporty looks, good power and handling and a reasonably comfortable ride. I was VERY uneasy about buying a Kia but after reading some online reviews from non-biased experts, I thought I'd give it a try. So far, I've not been disappointed. The only truly disappointing thing I have with the car is the sound system has an issue that causes it to cut out from time to time and the Bluetooth doesn't always connect to my phone. The dealer has confirmed the problem with the stereo, but I've not had time to get it in and leave it with them as they said they will need it for a couple days to pinpoint the problem (either the stereo or the amp).

Description: Used 2015 Kia Optima LX for sale - $13,998, 38,975 miles with Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input, Alloy Wheels, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control, Side Airbags
Transmission: Automatic Color:Brown Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4.29 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.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.643 reviews) Parked next to my daughter-in-law's jaguar, I have to say the looks of my Optima are much better. I've gotten up to 43 mpg on the highway and the handling of the car has saved my life at least once. Running 70 mph on a dark highway, I had a deer jump out in front of me. I jerked the wheel to the left and the car lurched smoothly in that direction. Heading to the left guard rail I snatched it will back to the right, the car reacted instantly. Shifting the wheel back to the right lane the car responded smoothly and quickly. This is the most impressive car I've ever driven.
