2002 Kia Optima SE 3.7 gas
I bought this car for 300.00 and it's still running. Very few repairs in this last year!
Brake lines were leaking.
50% percent of the sensors have been changed.
The air bag light stays on.
Transmission does not shift out of drive to overdrive part time. Does not shift well unless warmed up, even in the summer time.
This car was neglected by the previous owner, this I know.
Performance wise the engine still has a lot of power! I cleared the faults almost daily myself.
I would buy one and trade it in before 100,000 miles. Other makes have had problems early in their production, and some still do.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
