Overall:

My budget was 10K and after test driving several vehicles including a Highlander, Corolla, Camry, and an Accord, I chose the Optima because of comfort, style, and the way it drives. Plenty of get up and go yet still refined. The only thing I dislike is the lack of a spare tire.

Would not recommend. Did not like the way I felt like I could not see. It gave me a bit of a claustrophobic feeling. Driving it was uncomfortable and a bit scary a times.

Too Much Plastic, Not Good Quality — this car is NOTHING like I had researched on, the one I got is definitely a bad nightmare, handles terrible,, mediocre gas mileage- the steering is a danger , as it drifts left to right,, you have to constantly correct it-something just is NOT right with the steering and I have taken it back to the dealer several times,,, they always said they cant find anything wrong,,, On top of everything else the seating and comfort is horrible,for long drives,,just not a car that I will ever buy again,,,,

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Its okay for an everyday car

Cons: Does NOT ride or handle good in snow or ice of ANY amount- Steering drifts left to right on its own, feels like bad linkage in the steering column
