General Kia optima review

2004 Kia Optima EX

It provides a comfortable interior as far as seating is concerned. Gas mileage is fairly good on this vehicle. There have been several issues associated with this car though. Door lock issues making it unable to lock the doors because they do not unlock without having to remove the interior door panels. And several engine sensor issues which caused the car not to start, and also causing a rough idle

Was top of the line in the year made

2004 Kia Optima EX

Its old and has high mileage and makes a lot of noise. It is not very reliable and I am scared every time I drive it that I might break down. It is fairly comfortable and I am sure it was very fancy and luxurious at the time it was made. It has a lot of automated options like power windows and locks and a fancy a/c system.
