    Buy It. Love It. — Best car ever! I will definitely stick with this make of vehicle. Very happy with their performance. It's a 4-cyl luxury car that has a DOHC engine. It's like driving at least a V6 with a cold air intake. Love. Love. Love. Not to mention the steering is really tight. It's awesome. Roads with lots of bends are my favorite.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I love this car.

    Cons: I don't like the hubcaps or the lack of tint on the windows.

    My Baby — I loved this car when it was mine. Nobody had it or knew what it was. However when i first got it i hated it because i thought it was a girl car but it grew on me. I had so many memories in this car. Even got it up to 137 :-D

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Looks expensive, Clear gauges, smoothness

    Cons: Can be bad on gas sometimes, Flimsy windshield wipers!

    Best Car For The Money — Can hit a deer doin 60 mph and and live to tell about it (me not the deer). Air bags didn't deploy but it left the deer in pieces all over the road. Damage to car wasn't that bad considering we hit dead center.

    Pros: best value/price and consumer reports likes it too!

    Cons: nothing

    Kia Optima From A 16 Year Old Male Perspective — The torque and horsepower leave much to be desired but overall the car is clean with great features like stereo control in the steering wheel and it looks very nice from both the outside and inside. Performance-wise the no-lift shift option is fun to mess around with adn the skinny tires allow for lots of lean when taking hard corners but the hankook tires could be stickier. Also the brakes are really quite good allowing for tire lock-up on dry cement which i've actually had to use twice and the tires started smoking but the brakes are very reliable. Gas mileage is in the mid twenties and reach 30 is driven conservatively. Overall it's a good car with a lot of nice features but i wouldn"t recommend it for anything more than grocery getting.

    Pros: Interior and exterior design, braking, safety features

    Cons: acceleration and torque

    Jesse's Review In The Kia Optima — I like the look of it a lot. Very sporty! Looks good, accelerates nice, handling could be a little better. I like the digital fuel gage and the climate control. I also like the infinity system. Looks good with the duel chrome tips. I wish i got the leather, but the cloth doesn't burn in the summer.

    Pros: nice looks

    Cons: a little too much body roll around corners

    Compromise Between $ Value And Performance — My teenage daughter totaled my Honda Accord-2002. Replaced with this car, Lot of extras, nice interior. Suspension system by Mcpherson great, Michellin tires, safety wise excellent, Great warrenty, Excellent Miledge 21 CTY per gallon. Needs more refinement for Left turb and right turn and Sluggish transmission. But a Big bang for the Dollar.....

    Owner for 0 years, 1 months

    Miles Driven per Year:180

    Pros: Highest legroom, Safety, Infinity Audio-6 speaker,

    Cons: Performance sluggish at 180 mile,
