Handsome, roomy, good power/handling
I'm really tall from the waist up, and this car accommodates me well. Power is pretty good for a v6. Have round-tripped a bunch of times between central FL and either St. Louis or Chicago. Does 75-80 mph all day long. Comfortable, good steering, roomy interior front and back, roomy trunk, good access to everything under the hood, easy to work on. Sunroof, cruise control, good radio and sound, comfortable seats with electric adjustability. 400+ on a tank of gas. There's a lot to like.
Ive had my 02 kia optima 5 months
It had 53300 miles on it. Its the v6es sedan. After the first week the transmission started slipping, the headlights dim and brighten, the radio and cd playervswitch back and forth. It read on diagnostic that i need a speed control sensor. The car has been a nightmare. Theres something wrong with my gas tank it constantly kicks off while you are pumping gas into it
Loved the Car
I owned my 2002 Kia Optima for 12 years. I loved the inside of the car and all the nooks and crannies for putting my things, CD's pens, paper, cell phone cords etc. Was very easy to drive and took the bumps and over R/R tracks smoothly. The only reason I sold it was because a few things starting going bad and I didn't want to put more money in a 12 year old car. If I could have bought another one just like it I would have. Only thing I would have changed is for it to have run on Diesel.
