Great Car for the Money

2008 Kia Optima KiwiKate - Henderson, NV 05/30/2010

Drives smoothly with good acceleration. Have taken it on several longer drives and the cruise control and comfort are great. Excellent sound system. Would have prefered a multi-disc system for CDs. Also, no compass, which is not a problem in familiar territory, but would be helpful when exploring new areas.

Car Review

2008 Kia Optima Swimmim - Ohio 07/27/2012

I bought a 2008 Kia Optima on July 11, 2012. We were looking for a third car, due to the fact we have two teenagers and a third car became necessary. I have never bought a used car before, but felt this time we did not want to spend the money that a new car costs. I have had vans for the last 22 years, and was now interested in getting a car for myself to drive back and forth to work. We saw this Kia Optima on the lot and decided to take a look at it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was very roomy inside. I am 6 feet tall and have always been hesitant to go back to a car. I have now had it for 6 weeks and am loving it. I would recomend this car to anyone. The new optima is beautiful and hoping someday in the future after kids are through college, I can get a new one. Thanks for making a great car.

The Hyundai Sonata Twin

2008 Kia Optima Chris B - Stillwater, OK 05/20/2009

I just recently purchased a 2008 Optima with 14,500 miles on it. I am very impressed with the performance and value of this vehicle. For the size of the car, it gets wonderful gas mileage. I routinely get 25 city and 32 highway which is higher than the advertised 21 and 31 on the sticker. What most people do not realize is that this vehicle is the mechanical twin of the base model Hyundai Sonata GLS. The engine, drivetrain, and transmission are all assembled by Hyundai and the only difference between the vehicles is styling. Your local Hyundai dealer can honor the warranty and perform all maintenance. Hyundai and Kia have come a long way since their entrance into the market in mid 80s in California. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a cheap high quality import.
