2013 Kia Optima SX Review
Great family car. Very reliable and safe
So many gadgets.
Good Car All Around. — I think the Kia is a great vehicle with very little to bring it down. it is a great family in car with lots of power. The fuel economy on this car is very good. Over all this is a good vehicle for around town, or even as a commuter car.

2013 Kia Optima Review
I love love love how my 2013 Optima looks and for the most part how it handles, but I am having some problems with a couple of things so far.
Having steering wheel, lock, and ignition problems.
Gorgeous Car, Great Ride But Having Some Problems. — First it is very tempermental about allowing me to lock the doors with both the door fob and even manually. If I get out of the car and I hear the bell chiming, I know it isn't going to lock, but I've tried everything to find out why it's chiming. I can get in and drive across the parking lot and try it again and it will be fine, so I know it's not anything I am doing. Very aggravating since I'm replacing a vehicle that was stolen, I certainly don't want it to happen again. The next thing that happened is that my husband was backing the car out and put it in part and shut the car off quickly and the car totally locked up. It wouldn't let the key turn, and the steering wheel was locked tight. I had to call roadside assistance and they said to push in on the brake, turn the ignition and yank on the steering wheel to the left real hard at the same time. Well, that did work but again...very disappointing. Now today, I made a quick stop to run in to a convenience store and the key wouldn't turn to let me shut the ignition off. I tried several times and finally gave up. Then I made another stop and it was fine. Scared to take in too far away from home....this is my 3rd Kia and this is the first disappointment.
