Very comfortable and roomy inside and the trunk as a lot space.

The only problem I have had with my vehicle is the crankshaft sensor which happens to be very difficult to get to under the wheel well. I really haven't had any other issues with the vehicle I do not like the fact that it has the engine turned towards the side of the vehicle it makes it really hard to work on the vehicle in such a small area the inside of the vehicle is really comfortable and roomy enough to at least fit 5 people and the trunk is big which is a big plus in my book it is big enough to put a Christmas tree.

The optima satisfies with above average features.

The Kia optima is a reliable, attractive and comfortable riding car. It has a lot of bells and whistles available when it was made (2004). Cruise control is particularly nice! The sunroof is fun and makes a warm day much more pleasant although the air conditioning will make a hot day very nice! Seats that adjust with the touch of a button; side view mirrors that can be adjusted from the driver's seat; a very nice music center with well placed and good performing speakers. The interior is attractive and very comfortable.

According to consumer reports this car 2004 optima was a winner. We got lucky

It is the best vehicle we have ever owned. It has 180,000 miles on it and we use it mostly to save on our new vehicle that we use to travel. We have always did the required maintenance on it. The battery got so old so we decided to replace it and found out we couldn't get the same one. Korea made a special solar battery that lasts a long time. I think the mechanic took the old one, he was quite expressed. Only problem was the sensor in the blower system. We just got this fixed. We love this car.
