Smooth driving. Comfortable seats. Family friendly.

2001 Kia Optima LX

My car is very smooth driving. It has a sunroof. It's very cheap on gas. It has a Huge trunk space. I fit my family in comfortably. The radio is great and can be adjusted to different speakers in the car easily. The air conditioner is amazing it is the coldest air I have felt in a car!
