2009 Kia Optima LX Review
says:
The Optima is bit more elegant, more flair in and out for the models up to 2010. Even the 2008 Optima still look very good. Not as many mechanical problems I am told and research.

Kia Optima: Good Value Family Car — Talk about value for the money. This car has been a good and relatively reliable all around family car with plenty of comfortable space for four (sometimes five). Looked at Accord, Fusion and Sonata and ended up with Optima. Great rear seat leg room - much better than Fusion. Gave up more supple leather and more horsepower from the Sonata, but paid 10% less. Liked styling and additional standard equipment and better mileage than Accord. Needs better front seats. Newer versions have improved the leather but cut down rear seat headroom.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great Value: Standard Features, Great Warranty, Tons of Passenger Space.
Terrific mileage with 22 in spirited around town and up to 32 on long trips.

Cons: Front seats totally lacking in lumbar support.  Leather surfaces are hard and feel almost plastic like.  V6 only slightly more sporty than 4 cyl.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fit/finish quite nice. Sporty-looking. Warranties are super.

Cons: Adequate power. Upholstery looks nice but could be sturdier.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It has it all

Cons: Id like an adjustable lumbar

I Really Enjoy Driving This Car, Although It Needs A Few Upgrades (ex. Exhaust System) — For a 4 Cyl, the acceleration is very good, and is a TON of fun to drive. The appearance could have been a bit for B.A., but I think overall it looks fairly nice. The gas mileage is really good too. Interior is easy to keep clean, although the back window is a mother effer to clean from the inside!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage; the ride is smooth; good sound system; speed

Cons: If you're tall, this is NOT the car for you!
