:angry: Guess I should have waited for the 2002's to come out before buying the 2001 Optima. The resale value dropped over 9k in the first month. Needless to say, I've got to keep this heap for another year. It all started out okay (for the fist month), then my headlights kept burning out. I have to replace them at least every 4 or 5 months. I don't even do that much night driving! This care has cost me more than anyother car I have ever owned, becuase I had to replace about every sensor you can think of. Each sensor has cost over $250. Now the spark plugs need changing and that's not a simple task, and who knows where the fuel filter is located? The dealer won't even tell you!! For now, all I can do is wait until next year.
