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.
2013 Kia OptimaRaheem Semper - Richmond, VA11/06/2016
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.
I loving my Kia .
2012 Kia OptimaJacqueline Davis - Edgewood, MD04/28/2016
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.
