Customer Review Summary for Kia Optima

4.5
(396 Reviews)

Don't buy without an extended test drive. Pay attention to the steering.

2013 Kia Optima Terry - South Pittsburg, TN 03/23/2015

It is one of many that have a well documented steering problem. It will NOT drive in a straight line - it drifts. It is not a "pull" but the driver must continually make "micro-adjustments" to keep the car in the lane. It is VERY annoying and physically tiring.

Good, solid car at a reasonable price!

2012 Kia Optima Chuck - Orlando, FL 10/24/2014

Love the car! Sporty looks, good power and handling and a reasonably comfortable ride. I was VERY uneasy about buying a Kia but after reading some online reviews from non-biased experts, I thought I'd give it a try. So far, I've not been disappointed. The only truly disappointing thing I have with the car is the sound system has an issue that causes it to cut out from time to time and the Bluetooth doesn't always connect to my phone. The dealer has confirmed the problem with the stereo, but I've not had time to get it in and leave it with them as they said they will need it for a couple days to pinpoint the problem (either the stereo or the amp).

WHAT A GREAT CAR

2013 Kia Optima GREGORY LITTLE - JONESBORO, GA 11/13/2016

I LOVE THIS CAR, DIDN'T THINK I WOULD LIKE IT THIS MUCH SINCE I DROVE A BMW 3 SERIES FOR YEARS BUT I HAVE TO GIVE KIA CREDIT THEY GOT IT RIGHT THIS TIME. IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT GET THE EX LUXURY MODEL IT HAS EVERYTHING YOU CAN ASK FOR PLENTY OF ROOM AND DRIVES GREAT.
