Good but not great

The most important thing that drove me to write this review is the not so great reliability. The car has issues with the battery and hybrid system in general that lead me to change it at around 55k Miles! Air mass issues are also common The car itself is great I've drove it at high speeds to test it and it did amazing, has good insolation especially through the thick double glass ( could be better on floor sound proofing) Overall I'd give it a 3.5-4 out of 5

Best driving car Ive Had

I absolutely love my Kia Optima! Drives like a Cadillac! After 2.5 yrs of using my car as an UBER, I have had zero problems... Customers love the back seat leg room, and huge trunk for luggage. 40mpg avg

2nd KIA Optima Hybrid I have owned

We love the car! Comfortable on long drives and the hybrid is great on gas. Drives very nice and plenty of power when you need to pass. The navigation system, heated seats & steering wheel, memory seating are all standard on this model and would not get another car without them now that I have had the experience.

Awesome Car!

Traded in my old Tahoe for a 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid and I could not be happier! First time owning a Kia and the car has been great, you get so many features for the money. I’ve had the car for just over a month and am averaging 43mpg in Dallas, TX so the EPA is accurate and I’m saving a ton of $ at the pump. My car came with the technology package (blind spot monitor, lane departure, auto emergency breaking front and rear, nav) which has been super helpful driving in Dallas traffic. Also got lucky and ended up with the panoramic moonroof and two tone paint (white with black pano moonroof) which make this car look really sporty. Definitely doesn’t look like a hybrid. As long as it remains reliable I’ll be very happy with my purchase. Loving this car.

Great Gas Mileage on Sharp Car!

I've got 32,000 miles on this car and I am extremely happy I bought it. I average 45 mpg and no issues with the car yet. Only thing I've had to do was change oil and air filters. I'm almost done with my lease and my boys do not want me to give it up because it sounds like a space ship when I pull up and electric motors are running. Great pickup when passing, and very smooth shifting transmission even though it's not CVT. Highly recommend.
