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

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 OptimaChuck - Orlando, FL10/24/2014
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
