Kia Optima SXL: You won't be disappointed!

2013 Kia Optima SX w/Limited Pkg

My 2013 Kia Optima is a wonderful car if you're looking for a reliable, sporty, and high performance vehicle! This specific car is a SXL so the added features are amazing. There is options for heating and cooling seats. There is a GPS that is amazing as well. There are controls on the steering wheel itself so there is no need to have to look over and down. The car also works well with Bluetooth. You can listen to all of your favorite music and be able to take calls hands free. I really Appreciate this feature because it gives people comfort and safety at the same time. Speaking of safety, this vehicle comes with a review camera so when you are backing up you're able to look at the video in real time with parking lines so you can receive assistance backing out and parking.

Wonderful well worth the price car

2013 Kia Optima SX w/Limited Pkg

This vehicle is wonderful the gas mileage is perfect the interior is nice and looks like a sports car even though it's not the price of a sports car. The car keeps up pretty well but does have to be looked at quite often there's always something little that is wrong but usually it's an easy fix and doesn't cost much money to fix these little problems overall this car is very good

Beautiful car and full of amenities

2013 Kia Optima SX w/Limited Pkg

My nokia is a great dependable car it has a 4 cylinder turbo. I have had the car for 4 years and it has 150 thousand miles on it. I have had no issues with the car other than normal wear and tear u put on a vehicle. I have had to change the rotors pads and ball joint. It gets really good gas mileage at least 28 on highway and about 25 in the city.

Love My Kia Optima SXL! Luxury car at my budget price point!

2013 Kia Optima SX w/Limited Pkg

I love that Kia mails me information in recalls. I feel safe in my car. My car handles well in snow and rain. I love all the features I have. From the sunroof to the heated and air conditioned seats. It's a comfortable car to drive and seats 4 adults comfortably. It's a luxury car at my budget price.

SXL turbo is the car to have for those who love stylish cars!

2013 Kia Optima SX w/Limited Pkg

I love the turbo engine on my SXL and the full moonroof. It rides quiet and fast. I've had a problem with the navigation a couple of times freezing, but it doesn't register in the system when I bring it in. It is a fun car to drive and my stepson loves the sport shift.
