Sporty mom car for hauling teenagers!
The car is fantastic! It has the size and comfort of a midsize car, but looks sporty and is eye catching. I love the panoramic sunroof which adds to the sporty look. . The Kia optima has plenty of get-up-and-go, but is really great in the fact that there is also the economic/environmental feature available for better gas mileage. Even when it is in the eco mode I still have nothing to worry about if I need to punch it and get the car to move fast. . I have had virtually no issues with the car, and when anything does seem off, the dealership service center had been amazing. . As a mom of teenage twins it is a perfect size that has grown with us since they were in the first grade. The car has served us well moving from toddler car seats to carting around my teenage twins and their friends. It has plenty of legroom, both front and back, the seats are incredibly comfortable and the heated seats in both the front and back seats is always a hit during cold weather. . I believe my only complaint I would have about a car has nothing to do with performance but more with the interior of the car. I chose leather seats because I had small children and did not want cloth seats that would stain. Unfortunately what we have found is that the leather seats are still easily discolored and I have not been able to figure out a solution to get them clean. . The only other issue that we have had with the vehicle is the rear backup camera which works intermittently. When we discussed it with the dealership about how best to fix it there really was no good answer other than it was a common problem but it is not something that was covered under warranty and we could replace it but the cost was prohibitive.
