Great car runs great love the look needs stronger door handles inside in stead of cheap plastic and better sound system all in all good vehicle for a beginner to work on and learn how to drive stick shift is a little rough on the cluster panel of rpm

Pros
Better sensors and back up cams

Great Car
Great all around vehicle, city driving and tripping. Good gas mileage. Nothing more required that regular maintenance. Good looks and convenient steering wheel buttons for various operations.

Pros
Expect this vehicle to last a long time past 41,000 miles we now have.

Best Car I Ever Bought
I bought my 2009 Kia Optima LX 2.4 L 4-CL new. Almost 7 years and 103,000 miles later, it is going strong. Other than tires and brakes, my repairs have been rear shocks, and, now, a front wheel bearing. My Op has proven to be comfortable, reliable, fuel efficient and stylish. I find its performance to be quick and its handling responsive. I could not imaging paying more for a comparable model of another make. The Sirius XM Radio is addictive. It is great on road trips. Many people do not see the value of the this car, that does not bother me.

Pros
value, comfort, reliability, cost of ownership

Cons
none

Great value
Bought the car used 4 years ago at 3500 miles and have used it a lot for commute as well as long travel (~8-10hrs each way) back and forth between Canada & USA. It is sitting at over 85000miles now. Haven't really had any major issues with it at all. It has been a reliable car all around. Safe to drive. Comfortable. Has nice basic features like Ipod connection, satellite radio. Good amount of cup holders and storage space. Trunk space is decent. Interior noise is good - don't hear the engine on city streets, and barely hear it on highways, and the shocks are decent for a smooth ride. Exterior design is obviously not sexy but is akin to a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. Looks average - nothing special but not an eyesore. Overall, great value when I bought it. Kia wasn't that big when I got it so the price was relatively cheaper than equivalent class sedans with Toyota & Honda.
