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.

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.

It has a luxury car style but it has an affordable price. I love the Bluetooth, I don't need ano auxiliary cord to listen to music or talk on the phone through the speaker. I love how it tells me how many miles I have until my tank is empty. Showing +400 miles on a full tank gives me a better understanding of how far I can travel. I love this car so much.
