Dunno about that, but I've driven the V6 and it's pretty nice.. seems like it's a better ride, BUT then again,.. I don't own a V6 model.. but I DO wish that my I4 had better MPG.Originally posted by Spec SX@Sep 1 2005, 09:15 PM
I have the 4. I have never driven the 6 but from what I have heard from some people that have the 6 they wish they had saved their money by buying the 4 becasue the 6 doesnt have much more power than the 4. The 4 will get up and go pretty good.
I don't know where these rumors come from about who makes Hyundai and Kia engines today. All engines used by Hyundai and Kia are built in their individual engine factories with technologies borrowed from the industry as a whole. Since 2000 Hyundai went to their own in-house designs.Originally posted by jimhood82@Oct 3 2005, 01:15 AM
does anyone know who actually did make these engines?
I had someone tell me that the 4cyl is a Mazda light duty truck engine... true?
anyhow, i have been driving my optima for a while now, and even at 80K Miles, it is still impressive. And I certainly would never call this underpowered.
