2011 Kia Optima Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Optima
It is a great car for the money.
The 2011-2014 models had an engine recall. The interior seat materials are not of the same quality as some it is materials. The nose is too long. It drags on hilly driveways and I do not feel like. I can get the seat high enough to see over the dash properly without my head brushing the ceiling. With all of these things being said, I love this car. It is a fun drive for a sedan, it is absolutely gorgeous and a decent car for the money. We have had no mechanical issues with it, other than the free, new motor at 100, 000 miles.
Kia is standing behind it, but it's not happening very quickly.
I love that it has a double sunroof and heated and cooled seats. I bought it used with a 175,000 miles, but it was a one owner car driven on hwy miles. However, it did start using oil and has been determined by Kia to be under warranty. They have agreed to replace the motor. My only complaint is that apparently the motor is on back order and they don't know when it will be in. Therefore, I have already been without my car for 3 weeks and don't know how much longer it'll be before I get it back.
2011 Kia optima ex fully equipped options.
I absolutely love my 2011 Kia optima ex! The color is white with the top being black and having a panoramic sunroof. It is equipped with fully loaded options. It includes a backup camera, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, heated back seat, two savable seat settings, Bluetooth, navigation, Sirius XM radio. Steering wheel controls that include radio volume, radio control, odometer settings, phone answer and end call, cruise control. Also the infinity audio system for optimal sound.
It is sporty and a dream to drive.
This car was recommended to me by friends. It has lived up to its reputation. It rides smooth and quiet inside. It has quick acceleration but a very good cruise control. It gives me good information on gas mileage and related information. I am the third owner of this car. It has been well kept. I get compliments all the time. Especially with the color. It is white with flakes and has a pearl color when seen at a distance. I have had many new cars but this is the best car I have ever owned!
Kia isn't putting their customers first. They should replace defective vehicles of permanently fix the problem.
There are a couple of flaws that could have been available when engineering this vehicle. One of the problems that really bother me is the rear view mirror falls off if you barely touch it. Another is the cover on the top of the shifter also repeatedly falls off. Also we have had to take it into the dealership multiple times because of recalls which is inconvenient and also could be a sign of a serious problem.
Kias are a top notch vehicle.
My Kia is absolutely amazing. Reliable, beautiful, and loaded. It has not given me a single problem since I bought it and paid it off. It is easy to maintain. I still get compliments on it, though it is a few years old. Looks sporty and sleek. Has amazing features inside the car. Heated and cooled seats has to be my favorite. Others I have talked to that have Kias love there's as well.
My optima is an eye-catcher. Very stylish and sassy.
About the only problem I can think of is that I have to take it about 50 miles away to get it serviced properly. I love the interior, very comfortable and the style of the exterior. Love the looks of it, I still look in windows to see it go by. Very reliable and good mileage. Loads of pep for a 4 cylinder motor. I would buy another in a heartbeat.
Super satisfied customer. More bang for your buck!
I absolutely love it! The turbo is a great feature. No problem with going from 0 to 60 in order to keep up with freeway traffic. It has been a very reliable car. With this car you get more bang for your money. Looks like a high end car but the price is much less. I definitely will be looking to buy another Kia when the time is needed.
The Kia Optima is a very beautiful car we get a lot of compliments.
Our Kia is great we bought it certified used and the warranty is great. Smooth riding luxury and loaded car. I wish the cars came with a spare tire but do not. The company did give us a flat fix kit with a one time use. The heated and ac seats I think are the best my first experience and I love it.
The Kia optima is a great car!
My Kia optima has been a great car. I have not had any major problem and it has 120, 000 miles on it. For the year it was made, the features are good. The one thing that I would change is the comfort. It is fine for driving around town but the seats could be more comfortable on long trips.
