2006 Kia Optima 2006.5 LX-V6 2.7 V6 from North America
Impossible to beat
Nothing, runs like a dream.
I love this car. Lots of power and room. I did some reviews on the car and found out it just beat the Toyota Camry out in safety. The car is awesome, with the manual/automatic trans, it makes the car fun to drive. Plenty of room, and many features to chose from I almost went with the EX appear package, but I'm not a big fan of the sunroof or leather. I added 18' chrome wheels to it and it really stands out. I love to take my friends out in my car they freak out. You still hear about KIA (Killed In Action), but the performace on the car in unbeatable. My friends have Camry's and Accords, but even the Camry doesn't come with the standard features that the Optima has. The old Killed In Action KIA is long gone. Before you say Killed in Action go drive one and I promise that you will be surprised.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought one, too. Yes, Camry and Accord owners do stare. The Optima looks good, drives good, parks easy, and rides smooth. Besides, it's more car for the money than any other mid-sized sedan out there. It's superior to the model it replaces. This ain't the same old South Korean car company.
