Family friendly car with easy car seat installation.

My Kia optima has been a wonderful family car. It is easy to install car and booster seats for little kids, which is a top priority when you have young children. It has been a comfortable car, except when very tall family members visit and have to sit in the back. The tire pressure sensors are dry sensitive to changes that happen when the weather suddenly gets cold so I have had to go into the dealership for slight fill to turn off that warning, but otherwise have no had technical issues with the car so far.

Why I bought another Kia, and love it and how reliable and gas efficient.

I have not noticed any problems yet. The only thing I have had to do is replace my gas cap so far. I have only had the car about 2 months. I got it because I was in an accident this past 4th of July and some guy turned in front of me and wrecked my other Kia I had it was a Kia spectra 2009. It totaled my car and the airbag deployed so I went and test drove other cars and ended up getting another Kia because they are good cars and have a good safety rating, I recommend. Kia to anyone looking for a great car.

You should be driving a Kia.

I think that the Kia Optima is super amazing. The handling is so well. It cruises like no other vehicle I have ever own. I have never had any problems with my Kia Optima. Mine is of the color black which looks so sweet when it is nice and clean. The car is extremely reliable in all forms. In terms of comfort, the seats are so comfy. The power seating is amazing. At the press of a button, you can sit taller or shorter whenever you like. I will never get rid of my Kia. I highly recommend it to anyone.
