This is the second Kia we have purchased. We purchased a 2006 Kia Sorento 10 yrs ago and traded it in for a 2016 Kia Optima. We have never had one problem with our Kia and that's why I keep going back. I absolutely love my optima it's all black in and out and it drives so smooth and it's just the perfect car I wanted. Great gas mileage also. I would recommend this car to all my friends or who is in search of a great car.

After weeks of online research relating to safety, comfort, styling, and price, my wife and I were impressed with the courtesy and professionalism of the sales team who went over the standard features and each option we selected. After a week of driving in heavy city traffic, we are very impressed with the quiet and comfortable ride, the excellent mileage, and how much safer we feel with the blind spot sensors and rear-view video and cross-traffic sensors. The touch-screen and voice commands for the GPS, sound system, and other at-a-glance displays are user friendly, as well. We feel we got a great deal and that the time we invested in researching this purchase will pay dividends in savings for years to come.

They went over the whole car with us which was so awesome. I would come back here in the future and get another vehicle. We had alot of fun test driving also. When we sat in the car it was so comfortable. The back seats are so comfortable that you can fall asleep.

2016 Optima SX

My second Optima, coming out of a 2013 SXL into the 2016 SX. Big difference between the two. Ride is much better in the 2016. Nav and Haron Kardon audio system are very good. great interior design, not as sporty as the 2013 but well laid out. The display is big enough to have the nav and Sirius together side by side at the same time and you can still read both. One complaint is the Sirius traffic and weather services are buried in the menu system and not easily accessible while driving. The interior came in a brandywine leather. Great dark red wine color. fit and finish are excellent. heated steering wheel, blind side warning system, very well appointed for the middle model. Milage is very good, hit 33MPG on a road trip and it's not even broken in yet. One complaint,. We just had a snow storm and you turns can't lift the wiper up to clear the snow from around the arms, the hood blocks the arms from lifting so the well that the wipers are in froze solid with ice. You can always tell when they design a car in Calif. Also, make sure you request a spare tire kit. they come with tire inflation package which is useless if you have a blowout.

I had been intrigued with the Kia Optima for a while, and when I went to check it out, I was really pleased. I bought the EX model. Though I was moving from an 8-cylinder to a 4-cylinder, I found that it has all I need under the hood. If I really need to punch it, the shift mode lets me get whatever I need. The inside is finished as nicely as a much more expensive car, and there are all the bells and whistles that I could ever want. The white paint job is beautiful, and the Sirius radio & speakers give me plenty of entertainment. Heated seats & steering wheel, back-up camera....it was a home run at under $28k.

Most comfortable car I've ever owned

If this review needed to be less than a sentence, I'd say this car is "well-rounded". Great value for the price, decent amount of power, and refined look. Very comfortable interior on the EX model. Fully powered leather seats, heated seats and steering wheel which is a dream! The technology in the car is ideal and intuitive. Extremely clear Bluetooth for my music and hands free phone calls. In addition, there are three USB ports and three 120V connectors (one of each in the backseat for passengers). It has a massive trunk.

We are only giving this 4 Stars due to the length of time we had to wait. From start to finish it was 7 hours. Our experience is not like others where the sales rep and manager haggle back and forth for us to have a higher down payment, or haggling over how much monthly payment will be. Our wait time was due to how many different people process the sales transaction. You have you sales rep, the sales manager, then the financier, then then one who handles the tax, tag, and title, and then the one who prints the paperwork for signing and then the one who finally sits with you to sign all of the paperwork. With that said.... Jay Brady, our sales rep was fantastic. He understood my needs of the lengthy drive there. He handled many of my questions by phone. He called when he said he would. And when I did not return his calls right away, he did not hassle me every hour of every day (like other dealers do), but instead, waited for my call. When we finally drove to Fuccillo Kia of Cape Coral, he made sure we were taken care of. He truly worked for us and on our behalf to make the deal happen. THANK YOU JAY!!!!!
