2015 Kia OptimaGary Unferth - Knoxville, TN01/16/2016
SXL has great features and good performance overall. Rating reflects seating. Seat adjustment is ergonomically poor on drivers. You will constantly find yourself adjusting the position to find a good one. On the passenger side there is NO HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT! This is the top line model! Rest of interior, especially doors, is bare plastic. I would not buy another Kia.
Very happy so far
2013 Kia OptimaJ C - Woodbridge, VA12/19/2016
We are very happy with our Kia Optima. I will admit, when we purchased it, our most recent vehicle was a 2004, so it had been a while since we got a new car. But it has all the modern bells & whistles, which you would expect on a Toyota or Nissan or anything else. Yet it was very affordable. We love the styling, the smooth acceleration, the feel of the car on the road--altogether very satisfied.
Great car worth every penny.
2013 Kia OptimaWilliam Carroll - Hampton, VA08/20/2015
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.
