2012 Kia OptimaRicardo Leon - Austin, TX05/15/2015
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.

It has a great look and in my opinion really great on gas. However, the seats are really low in comparison to the sun visor. I don't think they thought much about the erogonomics when designing this vehicle.I'm not really short but when the sun does its thing, I feel as though I need to sit on the yellow pages so the visor can serve its purpose. Other than that this car is great!
I loving my Kia .

Great car for the family. The drive and ride is very comfortable. I love how Kia Optima takes the road without any problems. The style of the car is awesome. Only thing I wish it had was a different radio system inside for the 2012. Who knows maybe one day I will buy a newer model later down the road. I will definitely recommend this car.
