Kia Optima is the most dependable and enjoyable automobile we have every owned.
Our 2006 Kia Optima is one of the best cars I have ever had. And that ranges from a '46 Ford coupe hot rod, to a '70 corvette stingray. It runs well, is most comfortable on long drives, handles like a dream, and gets good gas mileage. Since purchasing it new in 2006, the only mechanical work done has been 3, 000-mile (now 7, 000-mile because of upgraded oil!) Regular service: oil change, filter, and 10-point vehicle check. We have every feature available on the car, and from leather seats to sun roof, it represents all we want in a family car. Right now, we have 117, 000 miles on our Optima, and I'll probably have it checked thoroughly and new tires all-around, and keep it from now on out. It is that good of a car!
