Kia Optima Owner Car Reviews

2017 Kia Optima GT Nav review

I'm the owner of an MY18 Kia Optima GT in red. In my opinion, it is a great car. Kia has come along way since the ’90s. Good on you, Kia. I have owned three cars made by the Kia group, and each time they have surprised me. As far as handling, performance, looks, comfort and economy go, it’s great. Each day since buying my Optima GT, I can’t wait to drive it again...

2017 Kia Optima GT review

As an owner of 4WD and SUV vehicles for the last 15 years, against the current trends, I decided to make the switch back to a mid-size sedan because of the value they currently represent, and I decided on the Kia Optima GT. I have to say I am extremely happy with this decision for a number of reasons...

2017 Kia Optima GT review

Having been a loyal Ford customer and the owner of six XR6 Falcons in a row, I thought it was time to try another brand as I could no longer buy another new XR6. After much online research, I decided on a Kia Optima GT. After finding a suitable colour, I did a deal over the phone and took delivery a couple of days later...

2017 Kia Optima GT review

My Kia Optima GT MY17, wow, what can I say? This car is amazing. Its performance, quality, price point, everything about this car has met my expectations. The turbo engine is very responsive when needed, meaning city and highway driving are total pleasures. The fuel economy has been what I expected: great fuel economy when driven accordingly, but put the car in sports mode and, look out, it will use a little more fuel...

2016 Kia Optima GT review

"The power to surprise". That's Kia's slogan. Maybe five to 10 years ago, but these days I think they are better than that. We now expect good cars out of Korea, and they regularly deliver. My Optima is no exception. I'm one of the few people it would seem that still seeks out a medium/large family sedan...

2012 Kia Optima Platinum review

I have owned my KIA Optima Platinum for almost three years now, and not once have I regretted my decision to purchase this car. Before purchasing the Optima I had a fairly good idea of what I wanted in my next car; leather seats, sat-nav, sunroof et cetera and was seriously considering a 2007 Lexus IS250 or a 2009 Alfa Romeo 159 Ti manual...

2012 Kia Optima Platinum Review

Famous for having a brand name that is an acronym for "Killed In Action", Kia is also well known among Australians for pumping out cheap, yawn inducing cars in the 1990's that you wouldn't even wish upon your own mother-in-law.. unless you wanted her to die violently in a single vehicle accident...

2011 Kia Optima Platinum Review

  Just back from Brisbane, drove down in the Kia and back in a Avis rented -Mitsubishi Mirage. The timing belt went in the Kia. So far my Kia Optima which I brought new on the 25 May 2011 and has done 44,000 Klm. I have had the car serviced as per the handbook...
