Best hybrid value

by on July 22, 2017

This car has the comfort and feel of a luxury car for a price of a regular car, great mileage for a hybrid sedan, extremely quiet and soundproof, very reliable tech inside of it. Highly recommended.

Amazing car

by from Pennsylvania on July 7, 2017

I loved everything about the car. I'm really into music and the sound system was amazing. There was a TON of trunk space and a lot of room for passagers too. Great car. Would recommend to anyone.

great looking car for the price! Great mileage when traveling. Although mind did not come with premium sound. The stock stereo sounds amazing!

Has all the bells and whistles and then some. Heated BACK seats and cooled front seat options? Awesome. Almost everything about the car physically is perfect. The trunk is TINY. Sacrificing space to the luxury of heated back seats isn't a bad thing. The panoramic roof is nice. The rear view camera helps a ton, you NEED it in this car. You can set your seats to your size... Its a nice looking car over all. Gas wise, I'm not super impressed. Less than $40 to fill up but I feel it should last 10-14 days per tank, I do average driving. At it's lowest it went to 26.2 ... I thought something was wrong with the converters. I think milage fluxes based on various reason. But NO lights came on. Drives Smooth. Quiet. SPACIOUS. I don't see how some owners don't feel the transition switch from gas to electric during the first 6 seconds of first accelerating. Its evident. Also it takes about 3 seconds for the gas and power to push your acceleration but once its there your flying and won't realize til you pass other cars with ease lol. Overall I LOVE my car! I bought mines with 69,3k miles , which is a but high but the Carfax was amazing and it was well maintained, it was a GREAT price, literally a STEAL and I got an additional $800 made it better. Bought it January 14th 2017 and so far have put almost 2k miles on it lol. It drives awesome!!!!! So glad I bought it.

Unhappy

by from Napa, CA on August 6, 2016

My 2016 Hybrid Optima gets only 15 mpg in town which is where most of my driving is. It's a little better on the highway but I rarely go on the highway; I feel duped.

I've put 50,000 miles on my vehicle. Had to go to the shop 3 times for various issues. Only get 20-25 mpg. And the seats are extremely uncomfortable. I would know, Im a taxi driver and i sit in my 13 optima hybrid all day after 1 year of driving it became devalued at least 10,000$ less than what i bought it for. This car looks great but that is all.

I've had 2013 Optima for yr and a half, @ 28000mi. I have had no Problem with it so far, Love the C.Y.A. Plan that my dealer offered, along with the on board maintenance count down really keeps me worry free. At my most efficient drive, I had the MPG counter to 62.3 and distance to empty at 637 full tank. average drive I'm getting about 33mpg city/45mpg hwy-mi.
