2007 Kia Optima EX 2.4 I4 from North America
The best car under 25,000 on the road!
At just a few thousand miles timing chain broke. Kia's awesome warranty completely replaced the engine without the slightest problem!
Most comfortable leather I have ever owned, SPECTACULAR Infinity Audio system, Moonroof is great, unbelievable power from a 4 cylinder. Fit and finish is superior, exterior styling is beautiful. My '04 Spectra got me past 625,000 miles, lets see if the Optima does the same.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Are you a traveling salesman to put so much mileage on your cars in such short time? Do you know if the broken timing chain is a common problem or a fluke on your particular Optima?

I've never heard of the timing chain breaking on the Optima's 4cyl. I've got 45k miles on mine now with no issues. Must have been a fluke.
