2017 Kia Optima Hybrid

Summary:

Happy with the car

Faults:

The car is reliable. Accelerator if pressed down quickly noticeably lags before the car accelerates.

Steering is peculiar. The electronic steering occasionally feels "sticky"; noticeable while cruising at 50 mph and having to make subtle steering corrections.

Both items I have not had in for service.

General Comments:

Excellent MPG. I average 42 MPG.

Wish the car had a wireless Qi charger. Bluetooth works well.

Under the hood is intimidating; it doesn't appear a backyard mechanic can service it. Hopefully aftermarket hybrid batteries will be more readily available.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
