It's what's on the inside that counts
The Kia would not start..repair shop in Waldorf replaced the starter relay..vehicle worked for 2 days returned for repair..kia repair shop said it was the battery(I had a new battery in but the Kia Mechanic said it was not strong enough) bought a new battery from Kia of Waldorf..vehicle worked for 1 day returned to kia repair shop then they Said it was the starter. This so far has cost me over $1,000 paid to Kia in Waldorf MD. I would NEVER buy another Kia...going to Honda to shop and pray that I can get a reasonable trade-in price for this horrible nice looking car. It's not whats on the outside but what's on the inside that counts.
Great car! Handles wonderful!
Loved the Optima after upgrading from a Forte due to highway issues with it. Lots of room, dashboard has all the bells & whistles you could want. Quick pickup, gas mileage is great if you aren't using the A/C which burns gas fast. It's a great car and I loved it! Unfortunately turning it in after nearly 3 years due to mechanical issues. Battery went after 1 year of use, starter just went on it 2 days ago, collision warning system keeps shutting down while just driving with error message. Everything was covered under warranty, but I never had these fast problems with my Toyota's. Trading it in tomorrow for something else. Plus they did away with the Optima line.
Great car, OEM tires are junk
Leased new, car is very comfortable. HUGE ISSUE with Nexin OEM tires. Had to replace all 4 tires after 13500 miles due to wear. Dealer would not replace until I purchased new tires. OEM tires were rated at 70,000 miles and Nexin company offered Sox $143.00 total toward new ones. Replaced with ANOTHER BRAND TIRE,cost apx $800.00
