Great value, just like Edmund's and Consumer Reports said it was.
2008 Kia OptimaMagna Maniac - Terrell , Texas04/04/2010
This car is our 2nd Kia but 1st Optima.
It gets excellent gas mileage for a car of this class & is full of features.
It has far more get-up & go than any other 4 cylinder car that I have owned.
There are air bags everywhere.
Very aerodynamic, no wind drag, when I exit the highway I have to use the brakes to slow it down.
The down side to this car is the ride.
Just a little rough when I am by myself.
It does smooth out with a car full.
All in all I would make the same decision if I had to do it over.
Holds up well
2008 Kia OptimaPoint A to Point B - Kansas City, MO09/01/2011
I have owned this car for over 2 years. I have had no mechanical issues. Gets good gas mileage. Handling makes it fun to drive. I owned a Focus before this and would say this car is on par with it.
