Lexus hybrid could be what the world needs

The Lexus hybrid is hands down the best vehicle I have ever owned. The seats are comfortable for long or short rides. There is plenty of room for our small family of 3, and I don't feel like I am driving something that's too big for me. It really is the best car ever, I hope it lasts another 125,000

Kia optima, negative points.

The Kia optima gets only fair mileage, is somewhat bouncy (shocks are stiff), and my wife is not really comfortable driving the car due to mirror placements.

It has a really smooth ride and is great for long road trips.

It has a smooth ride and good gas mileage. Has a nice body shape and looks good. Heated and cooled seats. Roomy back seat.
