Smile Kia Hybrid Lover :)

Hello I'm a relatively new Kia Optima Hybrid owner. I bought my car in October 2012 and am absolutely in love with it. It is by far the best vehicle I've ever owned. I had concerns over being able to drive it in Alberta's winters, but I am thoroughly impressed with how capable and efficiently it drives, even in some pretty horrid conditions! I live in Gibbons, AB and commute to Edmonton daily, which is a lot of driving on notoriously bad highways in winter. I owned a Hyundai Santa Fe prior to this car, and I traded it in for this. Couldn't be happier!!! I've checked out this forum intermittently over the last few months, and thought I should join so here I am! . I am a 36 yr old mom of two boys (13 - soon to be 14 and getting his learners license! Oh boy!! :-/ and a 10 yr old) I work private security in a construction company, and use my car for personal as well as at work. I have an amazing hubby (who wants to buy a Kia Sedona in the next couple of years) and we have 3 dogs; an Akita, a sheppard/Rottie cross and a Min Pin/Chihuaha cross; all 3 are rescues. I look forward to reading and learning more about my car and Kia's in general. Thanks to the people who created this forum!

As jetech says... WELCOME...
I/We hope you continue to enjoy your Hybrid Optima..
If you "see" anything not PG13 here please notify us..
We strive to be family friendly even if it's considered "old fashoned".
We ask respect for ALL posters even "if" your "point of views" are different.

I would also worry about a 14yr old behind the wheel ...although some children of our farmers drive much larger/more expensive/and capable of doing much more damage machinery (Tractors)... It has to do with how mature your child is... Good Luck!
