    Cute and sporty Kia Optima EX

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    The Kia Optima EX is a wonderful car. It holds a lot of space inside for other passengers, making it comfortable for everyone. The car does wonderful with gas mileage, and is such a smooth drive. Surprisingly, the car does well on all terrain; for example, when taking my car through the mountains for a camping trip I was surprised how well it managed going on the steep inclines and declines. I have had the car for 3 years now and haven't had any problems. Love this car.

    2016 Kia Optima: An Amazingly Smooth ride with luxury leather!

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    My Kia Optima 2016 is my second Lease with Kia. My first Optima (2014) was a dream. Awesome ride. Very sturdy. Everyone who sat in the back would always tell me, how much space they had. So, it was obvious when I turned in my lease, I would choose Optima again. But with some upgrades. The leather they use is a sturdier type. Very comfortable and will last a Very long time. I'll have my car 3 years with no sun damage. Can't wait for my next lease.

    Kia Optima: Take it to the street.

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    I really like this car. I have had such a good time driving it for leisure and professional purposes. It's a comfortable drive and spacious for a tall guy like myself. The only thing I have a problem with is that it doesn't come with a spare tire. It's something that you have to buy separately from the dealership. Aside from that, I'm very pleased with my Kia Optima.

    Panoramic Roof and Safety Features

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    The first one we had got major electrical issues and we ended up having to buying another one. Is fast and has good mpg rate that doesn't go fast. Has been reliable in weather conditions and other scenarios. Is comfortable for even 5 grown men to drive around in. Has a good engine structure and safety features are limitless on this vehicle

    Problems in Kia world aren't the end of the world

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    I absolutely love my car. I'm only rating it a 4 due to recent issues (abs light and blind side light). I schedule an appointment and was advised to come back another day. Not the best customer service. I should have been offered a loaner. I scheduled another appointment and I hope to have a better experience and have an easy fix.

    Epitome of the modern day car

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    In my opinion, my Kia optima ex is a great car with very few flaws. The car is very comfortable and spacious, giving extra room for most of my passengers. The car comes with a variety of charging ports; including 2 cigarette charging ports and 2 USB charging ports in the front and back seats.

    - Matt M

    Kia Optima the most spacious vehicle

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    My vehicle is very reliable. Got no problems. It saves me a lot of money on gas especially because I drive far to go to work. It's very spacious. I can fit three car seats, an infant and two toddler car seats. I would highly recommend this type of vehicle to anyone who's looking to Buy a car.

    - Marianne B

    Great car for first time drivers!

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    The 2016 Kia Optima ex has been a very reliable car. It gets amazing gas mileage and have not had any problems with it. It's a very spacious car for still being a small sedan. I would definitely recommend a Kia Optima for anyone looking for an affordable reliable or first time vehicle!

    - Kay O

    The Kia is very great on gas. It has a good system.

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    It drives very well no problems and very reliable, the radio works fine the tires are great the engine works very well and the car works well in the snow. Not to mention the mpg is high you can go a long time without putting gas in the car. But overall it is a great car to have.

    - NAOMI I

    The 2016 Kia Optima is an overall good buy and reliable vehicle.

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    Good fuel economy, a smooth ride, sporty roomy, gets around good in snow, reliable, comfortable seating, lots of convenience features, heated seats, Bluetooth, touchscreen, steering wheel controls, traction control, MP3 player, multiple USB ports, decent power, memory seating

    - Stacy E

    2016 Kia Optima is a great car. Very roomy, great on gas and good features

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    Only issue since purchasing is brakes squeaking. Had it back to dealership 3 times before it was fixed properly under warranty. Otherwise love the car! Love the back up camera and Bluetooth features. Also has a CD player which I love. Very good on gas and easy to.maintain.

    - Wendy T

    I love my Kia Optima ex because it runs smooth.

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    My Kia Optima ex is a great car, I bought it in 2018 and runs very smooth. This Kia saves gas and you can't hear the motor at all. The tires don't get wasted fast and when it is time for a tune up, I don't have to spend much money on doing it. I love my Kia Optima ex.

    - Luis R

    sleek and stylish. Looks more expensive than it is

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    I have no issues with my car since I bought it brand new in 2016. Gets great gas mileage. Great for everyday and vacation travel. Very comfortable and reliable. Great for road trips due to being very spacious. Has 4 doors with power windows and easy to use features.

    - Melissa S

    Kia Optima - Best car there is!

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    My car has Bluetooth compatibility, it has a lot of space for a sedan. The only problem I see with my car is that the speaker on the dashboard keeps coming up but other than that there is no issue. The speakers are loud which is nice. The car runs relatively quiet.

    - Britt O

    Push to start is a nice feature

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    I like the leather interior and push to start feature. The car drives nice and gets good gas mileage. I have not had any issues since I got the car. I have a black car with black leather interior and I like the look of the car. I like the Bluetooth feature as well.

    - Lauren G

    Spacious, smooth and reliable sedan

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    What I like most is it is very spacious. The back seat is larger than A Jeep I was looking at, a lot of space for 3 children and 2 car seats. It is a very smooth-quiet ride, safe and reliable. Great on gas. And the price is ideal for a single mother like myself.

    - Jessica C

    In love with this car. But mostly on how gas efficient it is.

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    This vehicle runs very smoothly, it is spacious enough to get my four kids comfortably. I love the seat heater on front seats and wheel. It is great in gas that's the best part of it. I also love that I can program my garage door opener to the rear view mirror.

    - Michelle A

    Pretty on the outside weak everywhere else

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    Small things like the door handle and door trims break or just fall off over time. There's not much durability on the body as well. The car typically has issues with the power windows where I swear I hear a whistle sound when I reach a certain rate of speed

    - Kenny R

    a honest Kia review by owner

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    I like the performance and comfort of this vehicle. Its small but cozy and sleek. Problem would be size for sure, its tight in the back. The features included are great, no complaints there. I would recommend this car for a couple, not so much for a family

    - karim G

    This car has a big trunk.

    2016 Kia Optima EX

    I have not had any issues with this car. The only thing that I don't like is that my phone randomly has trouble connecting to the radio. Otherwise the car has performed problem free beautifully. One of the best features is the really spacious trunk
