Sorry Buick by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/19/2012. Trim: 2011 Kia Optima LX MT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: 12000 Miles Averaging about 500 miles on a tank Love the looks and it seems to be getting better as it breaks in. Tracking is better to.Dont know why maybe getting used to it.
Cons: Tires could be better they are loud and they might be why it used to pull to the left however tracking much better now.Wish they where Michelins. Wish MPG was more in line with window sticker.Sticker must have been estimated on real gas and not what they sale us in KS/MO. Makes a difference where gas is bought wondered what happend to good MPG in my old cars. The computer tells the tale. Could youse a little sound proofing.
Overall review: I used to be A Buick man I traded both mine in for this car as they had almost a half million miles on them. Would have bought another but used prices are to high. Thanks cash for clunkers!! Checked new Regal out but just to expensive and to much forign content. For An American Brand Plus No 3.8. Thanks KIA,Tthis car was just to good a value to pass up.Love it so far.

Best bang for your buck.. by DW from SW Florida on 12/12/2011. Trim: 2011 Kia Optima EX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Styling; fun to drive; eye catching design; features
Overall review: This is my 14th new car and without a doubt the best. The styling looks like a $ 40-$50,000 car and all for under $30,000. Has the appearance of a Lexus without the cost. The interior is classy and driver oriented. The panaromic roof is an Optima exclusive and adds even more to the look of the car. I have owned this for 2 1/2 months and averaged 35mpg highway and around town I am getting 24-25 mpg. The 5 yr/ 60,000 mile warranty is something that no Ford, GM, or Chrysler offers and the build quality by far surpasses any car I have owned.

SX Turbo Kia by RAMcharger on 09/24/2011. Trim: 2011 Kia Optima SX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Turbo power, combined with excellent gas mileage, very attractive appearance, comfortable layout, and fantastic pricing makes this an unbeatable value. Car handles well, but needs more noise insulation.
Cons: Not much to complain about. Wish you did not have to order both premium packages to get certain basic amenities that are normally standard, like heated front seats and power front passenger seat. Hated "spinner" wheels on SX and made Dealer swap with warranty (wheels are numbered and matched to car) for Sport Design Alloy Wheels, which are a much better match for two tone grey the SX normallly comes in. Car does not have daytime running lights (solved by leaving headlights on...timer turns off 2 minutes after ignition is shut off). Only 1 CD in any radio configuration. Multiple disc not available
Overall review: Once this vehicle starts being assembled in USA (instead of Korea), more options may be available without having to be tied to a package. But fully loaded (heated and cooled front seats, NAV, Upgraded radio, panoramic glass roof, heated rear seats,etc), this car is an unbeatable value for under $30k.

Best value on the market by Bflour on 10/19/2011. Trim: 2011 Kia Optima SX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I have owned this car for 5 months and I love it. Great styling, comfort, and performance at an unbeatable price! Great value!
Cons: There is too much road noise. The steering tends to pull to the left however, I understand that it is just a matter of an adjustment to the computer controls to correct this.
Overall review: Great car, great value. Traded a Cadillac and have no regrets. Would recommend to anyone.
