Pros: "Pretty good gas mileage."

Cons: "Big blind spot on front passenger side."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"I have had my 2010 Kia Optima for 4 years. When you are in the drivers seat, there is a HUGE blind spot over to the right side of the windshield. This spot is over where the Passenger side view mirror is located. The mirror (which is huge) combined with the passenger door frame metal (where it meets the windshield) on the right, together make an enormous blind spot. I have on Many Occasions, almost hit both cars and pedestrians. The seats are not electric. Gas mileage is passable and it's not the most comfortable. It only has 1 cd player and not lumbar support. Also the drivers vanity mirror has no light, which is stupid. Don't buy this car."

Pros: "great gas mileage"

Cons: "no power seats"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"The only downside is no power seats. If you are on a long road trip and you need to adjust the seat for better comfort you will need to get off the road to manually adjust the seat. That is important if you have back or leg issues."

"Just got the 1st inkling that all may not be well in Minnesota Happy Land. The Engine Light came on... So off we go to the Out-Patient Clinc (aka "the Kia Dealer"). They haven't seen me in so long a time, I'll e-mail my photo ahead so I'm recognized! Happy New Year!"
