This vehicle has been very reliable. Not many problems.

2003 Kia Optima

I really like my Kia optima. Size of car is just as I like. Performance has been good. I like the body style. I have cruise control which is very convenient. Air conditioning works very well. . I have side airbags. My seats are very. Comfortable. They are cloth. I have a four door which makes entering and exit very comfortable. This has been a reliable car and I haven't really had many problems with it. I have replaced a fuel pump and one belt in the time I have owned my vehicle. I have not had many repairs on this vehicle. This has been a very good vehicle. Looking forward in the future to perhaps purchase a new Kia optima. The newer models have a beautiful new body style. I only have 68, 000 miles which is great for the year. I give this car an. Excellent review. I would buy this car all over again.

Good size ample sitting with plenty of legroom for all>.

2003 Kia Optima LX V6

Haven't really had any problems with my car. It performs really good since I received it, in 2013 and it is up to 300,000 plus mile and it's barely starting to miss a little but otherwise it is still working good. I rely on it a lot and it's been great in all types of weather. I have slept in my car several times and it was great! Also it fits all the people I need to have with me. Its basic but great for me I highly recommend this make and model to everyone. I am planning to look for another one when this one is done.

The life and time of a 2003 Kia optima.

2003 Kia Optima

Well when I bought my Kia it was the top of the line for Kia, mine looks like a Cadillac inside, since then they have come up with the cadenza and another vehicle. Very nice cars, I have been told that mine has an unusual grill. I have almost 300, 000 miles on mine its been a great car, it has never left me stranded. I tell everyone everywhere I go what a great car it is.

- Lori M

Very smooth. Reliable. Not a bad car.

2003 Kia Optima

I do not have any issues with my car. She runs great. The outside is a little beat up, but she does great. She is a little old for my taste, although she rides very smooth. It has leather seats, not so great in the extreme hots and colds though. A/c compressor went. I can live without a/c though. Great car all around though.

- Gabrielle G

Good budget and gas friendly car.

2003 Kia Optima

The car is really well made and reliable. The cloth seats on the inside are really nice and comfy for long car rides. The gas mileage for the car is also good for the price (about 30mpg). The car has some get up and go. It is very lightweight and turning in the car feels like you are driving a go-kart. Very fun.

- Robert H

It's blue and beat up but she runs

2003 Kia Optima SE

It's old and runs a little rough. The gas mileage is good and it hasn't failed me yet. It's grey and the front right headlight is bashed it. It's been in many crashes but it's still going. Nothing on the car is new and it's all dented. The seats are comfortable but the ride is a little bumpy

- Julia E

Good car good gas good deal.

2003 Kia Optima

My 2003 Kia Optima is silver with a sunroof. Took a while to get used to but it runs good. Heat air conditioner leather seats. Good on gas very reliable to and from work to and from states also. But I love my car do not know what I'd do without it. Thank you for your time and interest.

- Sherman T

The fact that my little car gets pretty good gas mileage is most important.

2003 Kia Optima

I basically like my car: comfort, fairly good gas mileage, dependable cooling and heating, the color. I don't like the fact that I bought the car used a few years ago, and some of the electrical parts were out, affecting the locking mechanism and the power windows (still an issue).

2003 Kia Optima LX

My engine light keeps coming back on, catalytic converter, pumping gas is awful, it clicks off every 7 sec or less and sometimes spews, and my steering wheel is a workout to turn. All fixable, never has broke down on me, air is always cold, rides cozy, stylish, and has a sunroof!

- Amy L

Sunroof - all weather sunshine.

2003 Kia Optima

Had core problems when I first bought it, had to keep taking it to the shop for service, they couldn't figure out what was wrong, took 3 visits before it was fixed, otherwise has been a good car gets good gas mileage, like the sunroof even though don't use it very often,

- Karen S

It looks like crap, but drives great, and the A/C blows very cold.

2003 Kia Optima

It's an old car, but it runs so good I hate to buy a new one and have a car payment. It has had very little maintenance/work done on it and seems to thrive. I literally have never changed the brake pads and have been driving it for over 14 years.

- Jana D

They are smooth cars to drive in my opinion.

2003 Kia Optima

My KIA Optima is a 2003 car. It is a pretty good running car. As long as you keep up the maintenance and take care of it. After 10 months of having my vehicle I took my car to the shop and they told me I need to get a new engine.

- Belitha B

It has a DVD player and CD player.

2003 Kia Optima

It's a newer car and really doesn't need anything.

No problems with it other than the struts need replaced and the brakes need redone. Normal wear and year maintenance maintained.

Great mileage and safe to drive.

Great car, good mileage, never any repair problems if you service it regularly. Would definitely buy again and recommend.

It is a very reliable car overall if you take care of it.

2003 Kia Optima

Just want new. Not only that it has some damage due to weather and people's carelessness. Not a bad care though.

- Jasmine B

It is the perfect size for me to be honest.

2003 Kia Optima

I broke a engine mount that is about it, the locking mechanism is broken for most of them so I fixed that.

2003 Kia Optima

I had this car for 15 years and still runs great. It needs a paint job. It has 47,000 miles on it.

- Robert I

Needs an alternator but it's hard to change. Uses a lot of gas.

2003 Kia Optima

It's roomy, drives smooth. I don't like how complicated diy work is. Often times requires a shop

- Katrina D

I like that it can accelerate quickly when needed. I dislike the difficulty in getting parts when things break down or oil changes with the "old car" oil. I complain about the placement of controls like the cruise and windshield wipers.

2003 Kia Optima

It's fairly reliable. Although I have my complaints, it gets me from A to B.

- Rachel R

Any problems have been easy to fix without taking to a shop. Son was in an accident and was not hurt due to the great build of this car. Has great response.

2003 Kia Optima

Handles well on the road. Comfortable to drive. Very well built.
