Default New 2012 Kia Owner

Hello Gents ,

I finally found a good website for Kia Owners. I just bought a 2012 Kia Optima LX 2 days ago , and may I say I am completely satisfied on the purchase. I came from 2 used Hondas. They were both good cars, but due to old age they started to fall apart.

This was my 1996 Honda Civic. Let it go at 110,000 miles. Though it has low mileage , it had a history of blown headgasket , and a coolant leak that wasn't taken care of from the first owner. Me as the second owner , suffered countless overheating issues and decided to throw in the towel. It also made me go to work almost late on my second day after hire because it was overheating like hell.

Then this was my 1993 Honda Accord. Let it go at 198,000 miles. It don't want to pass California emissions and it was falling apart , suspension wise and cosmetic wise. Eventhough I take great care of my cars , I hate shelling alot of money for repairs.

Now this is my new wife. Slightly used and I love it.

It's the only picture for now. I'll take more later on. It feels good driving a car with 200 hp when I came from cars with 125hp (Accord) and 106hp (Civic). Plus having more features, safety, room and convenience.
