2001 Kia Optima from North America
This car looks and drives nice, but is not mechanically dependable
I haven't seen my car in over two months. It is now at its third mechanic, and they still can't figure out why it won't start. They have run all the tests.
The timing belt, crank sensor, coils, plugs have all been replaced. Fuel pump has been checked.
Mechanic said the car is possessed because the antenna goes up and the radio comes on by itself, with no one around it.
This car looks nice and rides very well (when it runs).
It is very comfortable to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I see you put that the car has 200,000 miles on it. What do you expect on a car with 200,000 miles? I doubt any car with that many miles is going to be trouble-free.

How on earth do you expect a 200K plus mileage vehicle to be reliable for any length of ownership without you being the original owner and knowing of its service history? Did you purchase it for $1000.00 or something, this 8 year old vehicle?
