I bought my 07 in 2016 and I'm not selling
For a car to be dubbed The Humble Wallflower I don't feel like I'm driving a Wallflower I've had my '07 EX V6 for 3 and 1/2 years bought it at 139k I'm now at 189 and pushing I love my Optima my wife owned until recently a 2019 Optima they just don't make them the same that motor had no power compared to my '07
Bought the 2007 EX model new in 2008. Has 95000 miles on it. Overall reliable car. I've had to change the battery once. Speakers blew out about 3 years ago though. Also driver's seat automatic adjustment levers stopped working. Unfortunately all the warranties have expired so I've just been dealing with it. Apart from those things though, I've had to change tires multiple times and brake switch I suppose our standard width excessive City driving. I will say though that in 2012, there was something that had to be recalled on that particular model that's affected the engine and I did have the engine momentarily stall on me. The dealer took care of it and I did not have any engine problems since. I mean issue in my particular region has been terrible customer service at the dealership. I suppose that is a regional thing and not necessarily Kia's fault. Overall it has been a reliable car that I have driven for 12 years now, including long Interstate distances.
