Needed a new midsize car in 2007 on a limited budget. Dealer/Kia gave us a great deal if we owned a Honda. This car has proven to be be a VERY decent, well running vehicle with only one blip at 100,000 with the air fuel sensor. Other than that, good basic maintenance and it'll run another 100,000. Hats off to Hyundai/Kia. I'll most likely buy another as the they now in 2015 have great styling and engine options.

I have had my Kia optima LX for seven years got me around fine up until I hit 127 thousand miles. My engine just decided to blow a valve and was headed for bigger problems I took care of it to used high mileage oil,changed air filters several times tuned up and still went bad. I did buy it with about 28 thousand miles on it back in 08.I have had a Toyota Tercel for just as long and I had 180 thousand miles on that and it was still fine I just wanted something newer. I will stick to Toyota , Honda or Nissan. I had never owned a Nissan or Honda but I knew people who did and there mileages were in the 200 thousands

I own a 2004 kia sorento, I have had the 2006 spectra. I now have the 2007 kia optima v6 ex edition, fully loaded, leather package, convience package. spoiler abs, stabilty control. Did I mention that I love this car!!. Gave the sorento to my daughter. Best money can buy, without the high dollar. I have never had any problems with any of my Kias. Kia vehicles are well made cars, I drove the 2007 camry and Maxima. I saved thousands buying the Optima without giving up all the luxuries.

this car is loaded with value and displays excellent reliability in all areas of operation. I find the excellent gas mileage and smoothness of highway cruising especially pleasing. The air conditioner keeps the interior c chilly under the hottest conditions and the radio sounds rich and full as does the CD player. Trunk space is more than adequate as is leg and head room. I love this car.

I have spent my etire life working in the defense and and space industries. Including the B52 bomber and the NASA Apollo and Space Shuttle programs. I know quality when I see it. The Kia Optima has it. Materials and workmanship are first class, and form, fit and function are near perfect.

After much researching and looking at used vehicles, I came upon the new 2006.5 Optima. What a wonderful car for the money$ Nice features, 25-29mpg (auto:4cyl.), awesome cd, interior cabin, 100k warranty and as my son says this car is "sic". I have driven about 3k miles and I truly can say that this is a great buy if you need a new vehicle

I've had my car for about 3 months and I love my new baby! I have the V6 engine & it has some kick to it & it rides so smooth. I had the 2004 Optima before this one & that was a great car also, I had it for 3.5 years and I had no problems with it... They have really improved over the years and I am so impressed at how fare they've become, the Optima are much more upscale from when they first came out, a lot of people can't believe it's a Kia I'm driving.... I lot of people underestimate Kia but don't I tell ya, they are becoming one of the best cars to have and at a great price!!!

Best car BY FAR

by from on March 3, 2011

I had never even hear of Kia before driving this car. Needless to say, I was SHOCKED. I loved it! There's nothing bad about it. The ride is smooth & it looks beautiful on the inside & out.
