Kia Optima Review

  • This car is very nice and it has some of the pro like it has a solid handling facility and gives good mileage of 21 mpg as well as the price also it is affordable. The only one thing is the seats re a bit uncomfortable.

  • i love the handling of optima. the way it cruises on road is just an amzing experience. the pricing is the only issue
