trouble from the day I bought it
Its a beautiful car inside and out, but having trouble with the hybrid system, The dash flashes check Hybrid system, shut car off, then surges at 40 km per hour, I'ts done this every since I bought the car, and mechanic in Canada don't know how to fix the problem, Now Kia Canada is involved, I sit in tears cause I have no help from anyone
Very reliable and nice drive
Perfect car for all your need in city and highway drive . Excellent gas mileage with fun drive and beautiful look. Tons of options in EX trim
Coolest Car I’ve Ever Owned!
I love this car and all of its amazing features! It is completely loaded and drives great! It is extremely fuel efficient and exactly what I need!
Very nice car.
The passenger seat should be outfitted with an up and down feature. This lends itself to a very uncomfortable position for passenger. There must be a fix for this poor situation.
Kia is the best!!!
Awesome for the money!!! This is my 2nd KIA and never had any trouble from my KIA SPECTRA EX nor my OPTIMA HYBRID so far. Great gas mileage for long trips..thank you KIA!!!
it?s gone now
After owning this vehicle for only a little over a year I sold it due to Kia?s poor quality. This vehicle always cracked and popped as if it were made from cheap materials. Also, it has defects the doors would randomly unlock themselves. It did get great gas miles and 200HP for a Hybrid is really decent.
Superb Interior with lot of features
This car has all the features i was looking for... Premium audio, Navi... My only concern is the mileage. was expecting around 35-37 but getting only 31 MPG.
So far so good great even
Luxury, good gas milage, peppy a little power. From Indianapolis to Chicago 2hrs stuck in Chicago traffic 2 1/2hrs and back to Indianapolis 1/2 tank of gas very pleased
The car meets all of my needs as of now looking forward to getting an a bigger car possibly the Sorrento Kia dealership is awesome as well as their service and parts department
More Power Than You May Think
When I began looking for a new car, I had to consider that this time around I'd need good gas mileage, a lengthy warranty, four doors and a low enough price as not to break the bank on something that loses value as soon as I sign the paperwork. The Kia Optima Hybrid was this car. I was impressed with the variety of features but in particular, the seamless way the motor and engine worked together to create pretty peppy car while delivering a lot of torque. It had me sold from the first test drive that I could take it on long trips to vacation or visit family without needing to stop for fuel on the way. With a full tank, my range states 561 after having driven normally and topping it off. The bells and whistles are many and I was fortunate to find a 2016 model being sold as "new". It was the dealer's loaner car. I had no issues with the already nearly 4000 miles on it due to such a long warranty. The car is just fun and it's nearly silent stops are still amazing to me. The tranny is as smooth as silk and the inline 4 cylinder (2.4L in this case) is plenty when coupled to the electric motor. The brakes are so amazing. They feel as though the car could instantly stop. This is the Premium model not the EX, the latter is the fully loaded one. Whether you buy the eco-hybrid or a gasoline powered Optima, you are getting a great car. The resale is a bit of a stinker but I don't buy a car only to sell it 3 or 4 years later - that's what a lease is for. The stereo - which I figured to be a letdown - isn't. It's average to above average quality and has plenty of sound as well as SiriusXM for those on the road trips. Very happy with it thus far but it's only been a little while. Driving a hybrid is a different animal but thankfully the learning curve isn't all that much. I'm not one to modify a car but in this case tinting the rear glass and maybe upgrading the 'bleh' REAR speakers outta do.
