Overall:

Absolutely love the car. Comparable to the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry of like years, but on average about $10,000 less for virtually the same car. Very quiet, very fast, user-friendly and luxurious. Zero buyers remorse. I highly recommend it.

Overall:

I have a 2017 Kia Optima LX. Purchased it in 2018 with a little over 40K miles on it. Long story short it now has over 180K miles on it. The oil burns extremely fast on this car, constantly having to get oil changes and changing spark plugs. The oil burning out fast has been an issue way before the 100K mark.
