2003 Kia Optima SE V6 from North America
A lot of bang for the buck!
Nothing has gone wrong with the car so far. There was a recall on the air conditioning compressor, but the part was replace free of charge before it ever went out.
The exhaust did smell like rotten eggs for about 4000 miles, but the smell is gone now.
Drove it from where I live in Washington state to Reno, Nevada just after we bought and had no problems at all. Performed very well, and was a very comfortable ride. Also, we had the air conditioning on most of the time with no problems. Gets pretty good gas mileage too, about 25 MPG on the highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
