Safety features sold us - 2016 Kia Optima
By akley - December 1 - 11:27 am
Auto hold braking, lane change warning, full body cameras, auto cruise follow distance and braking features are amazing and useful. The luxury items of seat air/heat, leather and electric EVERYTHING are icing on the cake. Stereo is like a theater. Very VERY roomy, front and back. Sunroof extends the entire top of car. Rides SMOOTH and quiet. Can't say enough good. Price tag was high, at least for us, but the car is certainly proving itself.

Really enjoying the car so far. The tech (radio/navigation/phone integration/etc) are excellent. Highwat MPG was better than listed on our trip. Surprisingly good acceleration.
I miss my CD's - 2016 Kia Optima
By Joe - September 24 - 11:03 pm
Why would the manufacturer decide not to put in CD players. We love our car which we have owned only one month, but on a recent trip through mountains both our "Sirius" and our "radio frequency" kept stopping as they could't pick up the satellite. I love our CD's with the continuous music wherever the road leads, so when I went to put in a CD and couldn't find a place for it I called the dealership and was informed they had discontinued the CD player. Now all we get is choppy music. I am very disappointed. I wish the dealer would have mentioned it, we probably would have not gotten a KIA.
Features removed - 2016 Kia Optima

Compared to previous years this is a big step back for the optima! A lot of the chrome highlights are gone! The dual exhaust chrome pipes are no longer! No more fog lamps either! The dash is no longer sporty looking! Was bad enough when the v6 was removed from the ex! I have a 2015 and won't go newer!

The car is worth the price. Shop around for best pricing. Don't settle, get the options you want.
My Jalopy! - 2016 Kia Optima
By Ruthi - August 30 - 8:11 am
I bought this car after owning a Chev Aveo that was bare bones. I did have AC put in the Aveo. The first time I sat in an Optima, I was in LOVE!!! And driving one... Oh YES!!! MyFuel economy has been amazing. Much better then my Aveo was. and holds the roads. I travel across country about 3-4 times a year. The Optima has made this trip amazing! I havent figured out all the technological things yet, so I rated them ok or N/A. All I can say is this is the most comfortable amazing car I have ever been in. I stopped speeding because I dont want to get out of this car....
Mama mia - I love my KIA - 2016 Kia Optima
By Joe Panozzo - November 14 - 12:39 am
We bought our KIA LE s fairly loaded - Leather seats, moon roof etc., Plus so many on line criticisms, but not so much by owners, so I thought there might be some issues down the line. We got a great deal and the buying experience was just about perfect. And after almost three years it has performed flawlessly. Only one trip to the dealer, and that was a great experience. I really like to lay back in the leather seats and look out the panoramic sun/moon roof at night.
Two Weeks & just filling up the gas tank - 2016 Kia Optima
By NoLa - February 2 - 9:38 pm
I brought my new 2016 Kia Optima LX two weeks ago for a good deal 16k. The ride is quiet and comfortable. I suggest drive in eco mode to save money at the gas pump. I'm average just about what is advertised. Also the car has a lot of sex appeal grown up/sporty look. I would highly suggest anyone to give kia a chance!
KIA Out Does Themselves Again - 2016 Kia Optima
By Tom Gage - October 17 - 12:27 am
If upgrading to the Harmon Kardon stereo system, you sacrifice a CD player. The sacrifice is worth it. You can use a personal Apple IPhone, Apple or other brand Ipad as well as an MP3 to play your recorded music with the USB cord. Other than this perhaps negative for some buyers, it is a delightful ride with all the top safety features and luxurious features of the finest cars offered by all top auto manufacturers and surpassing them. It should be noted that this is my second newly purchased KIA. The previously owned 2010 KIA Forte LX accumulated over 195,000 miles with only normally scheduled maintenance. BRAVO! I expect no less than the attainment of this achievement for my 2016 KIA Optima SXL Turbo when combined with the past exceptional KIA service.
