Review of the 2017 Kia optima over all quality.

I had this vehicle for a little over a year now. So far I have had no problems with this vehicle. It is very comfortable. It has Bluetooth connection, rear view camera, and two different drive modes, which are eco friendly and sports mode. The ride is very smooth and has an has a lot of trunk space. The seat seats can also be folded down for larger items, especially when moving. Over all this is a very good and reliable vehicle.

Great car that feels like a luxury sedan without the price.

I really like my car. I have had it for about 6 months but it is been a good car and I hope it lasts a while. It is very sporty and comfortable on the inside. It'll go fast too. It has a lot of technology as well, I can connect my phone via Bluetooth and listen to music and talk on the phone handsfree. It is great on gas. I haven't had any problems with the car so far.

Bluetooth connectivity makes it very nice to make calls & listen to music.

The engine is rather weak. I wish I would've spent a little bit more money to get a stronger engine. The interior is nice although it seems a bit cheap compared to other car brands such as Honda that I have driven in the past. The car is very comfortable itself and it does come with some surprising features for a base model such as a back up camera and touchscreen.
