A used 2003 Kia Optima LX V6 has an average retail price of $4,732 and 110,000 miles.
Getting an engine upgrade also means an upgrade in standard features for the 2003 Kia Optima LX V6. With a 2.7-liter, 170-hp DOHC V6 and 4-speed automatic with sport-shift under its hood, the LX V6 gives the mid-size sedan a lot of kick. Though most of its features are the same as the base LX (power windows, locks, and mirrors, air conditioning, CD player, new cruise control, and intermittent wipers), the LX V6 adds on wood accents in the cabin for a more upscale look.
Dual front-side airbags are standard, boosting Kia's emphasis on safety. Other standard equipment includes a tachometer, front and overhead consoles, and a tilt steering wheel. The rear seat split-folds for cargo versatility. Unlike the base LX, 4-wheel ABS is an option, along with a 6-CD changer. Generally, drivers of the 2003 Optima LX V6 like the fuel economy, which is average for a mid-size, at 20/27 mpg. The overall price and long-term warranty are the initial draws, but the long list of standard features and roominess please most owners. More horsepower is desired even on the V6.
This overview covers the LX V6 trim only.
