I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Love this car!

Two complaints the brake pedal squeeks when you press it and the Eco mode is too restrictive at times. Otherwise this car is amazing! I love getting 36mpg when I have a lead foot and 50 when I'm being conservative! The power from this 4 cylinder is astonishing! I am completely surprised I do not have more speeding tickets! Handling is amazing and becomes more sporty when you take it out of eco. Fun to drive, has more power than expected and is a hybrid, couldn't ask for a better combination!
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.

Its a great car, low miles and great warranty! Gas mileage is amazing and it's a smooth drive. The hybrid is a great option for all commuting.
They contacted me by email I have not purchased the vehicle yet but I’m considering it I will probably consider purchasing the vehicle but I am narrowing down the likely vehicles to purchase

This car is fantastic! I love the look and feel of it plus it's a hybrid so if you're concerned about your carbon footprint this is a great car to buy or lease. Plenty of leg room but you do lose a little trunk space due to the battery but still a great car for the money. I like not having to plug the car in and appreciate that it toggles between gas and electric use. Really sharp exterior and interior design! I brought it to a garage near my house for an inspection sticker and they said that the inside looked like an Audi! It's a sharp looking car that performs really well and it's better for the environment. I also like the fact that the side mirrors unfold and the interior dome light comes on when I approach the car. Great safety feature! I would definitely recommend this car!
This is my third lease from Gateway Kia and as always I received exceptional customer service. I would highly recommend working with Gateway Kia, they listen to your needs and do whatever they can to make the deal work for you.
Amazing cockpit-style interior

Bought it new in August 2015. The 2015 Optima Hybrid drives well and is somewhat responsive when not in ECO mode.
I currently have 54,018 miles on the car - mostly highway commutes.
There have been a fair share of electrical problems - none of which disabled the car.
Just the a few days ago, while on a highway, the transmission gave out. Mind you that I'm an avid user of cruise control at 60-70mph. The car started to lose fuel efficiency in the past year that I've owned it, giving me nowhere near the advertise MPG. I found this strange because in the first year I've owned it, I actually achieved more than the advertise MPG rating - typically 43-47MPG. I want to rule out my driving habits and I've mostly payed attention to MPG in the summer. I am in the low 30's to 35ish even on the highways. The GDI engine is irritably loud when you are outside the car. Inside is a different story.
On a plus side - the car is pretty comfortable and I love the cockpit style driver seat. Long commutes are easy with this car.
I've had terrible service for this hybrid, but I'm not factoring that into my review.
