"The only complaint about this car is the nav system screen. It is entirely too bright even when dimmed, & quite disturbing at night, & it has to warm up in the morning before the buttons work. It would be a perfect car if the screen dimmed a lot more. But I love, love, love the heated steering wheel."

"My Optima is loaded. Its sleek looking at has everything you could ask for. The problem is, they put in everything you'd expect in a luxury vehicle without the steep price. The quality just isn't there. The navigation screen is terrible. It is sluggish and hard to get to respond to touch. It takes way too much effort to get the keys to respond correctly when typing in a destination that I barely use it and opt to use my phone's navigation instead. My least favorite quality about the car is how loud it is while driving. Not necessarily the engine or tires but the amount of road noise is deafening. You absolutely cannot use handsfree calling because neither you nor that other caller can hear each other over the wind and road noise. I've had several recalls and maintenance issues as well, including a blown gas pump. Its a sleek looking car but overall I'd much rather drive something else. I'd buy a different car today if this one hadn't depreciated so quickly and left me upside down.."
