    Bye Bye Optima

    I know I didn't post a whole lot on here but I just wanted to tell everyone thanks for the great community and all of the excellent inf on these forums. Last week, I traded in the Optima for a 2013 Nissan Frontier. I loved my Optima and never had any problems with her, but I needed a truck. If you've ever sat in a Frontier, I don't have to tell you that it is nowhere near as refined or comfortable as the Optima. However, it can tow and haul things, which is what I need. Hoefully Kia keeps making these cars for a while and I can buy another once I am a baller and can afford 2 car payments

    Enjoy the Nissan. Have to get what you need when you need it... I know how that goes.

    Thanks. Here's the new ride - bone stock as of now. Tint is getting done this weekend and I'll be plasti dipping the wheels black too. I'm liking the truck a lot so far but there are a lot of things I need to do to it

    Had a Frontier, I do miss it. However had the rear end fail before 18K miles. Then there was coolant mixing with the transmission fluid. Hopefully they sorted those issues out.

    Let's hope so. What year was yours? I was told that a lot of the issues they had were sorted out in the 2010's and later. I almost bought a Tacoma but the Frontier had a bit more power.

    Good to hear. I'm really liking it so far. I have a feeling it's gonna eat up all my money though, so many things I want to do to it
