Kia Optima FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Optima here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Are SUVs better for older drivers?

    Yes, I agree that SUVs are a good choice of vehicle for older drivers; as you say they afford you a good view of the road ahead and your surroundings, and they're easier to get in and out of. They are, however, larger and that can make them awkward for older drivers who have a greater tendency to bump into things. If you choose an SUV the CX-5 is a good one. Should you decide against the SUV you could look at the Mazda 6, Subaru Liberty, Toyota Camry, Kia Optima or Honda Accord. All are good cars. Another to think about is the Subaru Outback, a high-riding version of the Liberty.

  • Good price for 2014 Optima?

    Unfortunately you'll cop the full whack of depreciation. As a trade-in you could anticipate getting around $25,000, if you sold it privately you could possibly get $30,000.

  • Kia Optima firm suspension

    Most Asian car companies tune the suspension of their cars to our local road conditions, and they typically end up firmer than the settings they would use at home. You could lower the tyre pressures a little and see if that improves the situation. Other than that you could take it a suspension specialist, like Pedders, and see if they can help.
