Purchased in 2009 with 26k miles.
Likes: comfort options (leather, sunroof, infinity sound system), gas mileage (27.5 mpg),engine performance, exterior and interior appearance.
Dislikes: partial LED failure in digital clock, "creak" in front left suspension, "buzz" somewhere in the interior at low rpm (cannot locate, driving me crazy), CD player skips.
I love my car
2006 Kia Optima - 03/31/2008
The Optima has been a very reliable car during the time that I have had it. I really like the large trunk space and leg room in the car. It does cost quite a bit to fill the gas tank although the car gets 25 miles to the gallon.
2006 Kia Optimamykia - Austin, Tx01/18/2007
"This is my first new car. I love it. It is stylish and panel is layed out comfortable enough for driver to reach everything I have had it a year and have had no major problems with it at all. The only drawback I have with the is car is it has a limited view roof is low side bar is big and sometimes trying to view cars to the left is hard but I keep that in mind and always look a second time before moving over."
