Forget the old Kia reputation!! New Kia is great!!! by MikeyMike from SC on 07/20/2004. Trim: 2002 Kia Optima LX V6, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Excellent interior comfort (great seating), 4 wheel disk braking is great, quality CD/radio/cassette stereo with 6 speakers, very enjoyable driving experience with the V6 with automatic being very smooth and quiet, great looks, great fit and finish to this car. I purchased new and now have 10k on it and no problems whatsoever. I am impressed with my dealership, too.
Cons: not having the keyless entry system standard on the LX but just on the SE model. Will add it aftermarket soon. Gas mileage has been a steady hwy 25-28 mpg since passing the 10k mark. Prior to that, hwy mpg was about 22 at best. Wish I had the leather interior but the cloth material is nice and seems to hold up very well.
Overall review: I traded an older Toyota Camry in on this Kia and in my opinion this Optima has quality of built and features that rival any of the Japanese autos including Toyota and for a lot less money. The long warranty is another plus. I really feel this Kia has a lot of quality and is a joy to drive each day. Already thinking of getting the new Kia Amanti next!!
