"This is the first new car I have ever owned. To tell the truth I wasn't even looking at Kia whatsoever until the dealer mentioned it. For the price the car is awesome. The only problem that we have had with it is the CD player had to be replaced because it kept skipping if it was hot outside."
"WE BOUGHT OUR '03 OPTIMA NEW, THE PRICE WAS RIGHT, WE WANTED A 5-SPEED AND THE DEALSHIP WANTED TO GET IT OFF THEIR LOT. WE
GET ABOUT 26MPG WITH THE 4 CYL, 5 SP. THE CAR HAS NEVER ABANDONED US, THE SERVICE AT THE DEALERSHIP IS GOOD. BODY PAINT AND INTEROR PLASTIC FADE IS A WEAK POINT, AS WELL IS DEPRECIATION. WE LOVE THE APPEARANCE AND '03 WAS THE ONLY YEAR THE OPTIMA DIDN'T PUT "KIA" ON THE GRILL. I HAVE HAD ALOT OF PEOPLE WONDER WHAT THE CAR IS. A LINCOLN? AN ACURA?
OURS IS SILVER AND LOOKS CLASSY. IT'S JULY 2007 AND OURS HAS 39K MILES ON IT. I
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE OPTIMA IF YOU LOOK AT IT AS A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP. THE CAR WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU."
