History
WOW - Has Kia come a long way! I first test drove the new Optima (2011 SX) in August of 2011. I was impressed! I know I wanted to get my wife into a new car, but she was fine with what we had. As 2012 was right around the corner, I decided to get her over to a Kia dealer to at least see the Optima and see what she thought. I was really surprised at how much she liked it, since for the past 3 months prior she was opposed to a new car. After driving it, and feeling how much power there was available to her she was hooked! but the dealer we were at did not have the Corsa Blue. They were only interested in selling us their in stock inventory, and went as far to tell us that the blue was discontinued! We left a $500 deposit and headed for home to do some research. I ended up finding our Corsa Blue SX a mere 20 miles away at another dealer. We got down there, told them the deal we had on the table at the other place, and decided that we would buy it here if they could match the deal. They came within $200 so we thought it was worth the money to have the color she really wanted. We have both been very happy with the car since, and I am having a great time making subtle mods.
