So some idiot pulled out in front of me while driving home (after getting off work early) on Friday. Since reading about all the recalls on the 2.0L Turbo model engines I've veered away from looking at Optima's. Anyone ever had/have a Koup? Looking at 2012-2013 SX models.

Hope no injuries, and not familiar with the Forte, but it's still a Kia so I'd expect it not to be trouble fee.

The non turbo Optimas are still decently fast. If you opt for a loaded EX you'll basically have an Optima SX, minus the turbo and a few other minor bits (several of which can be bolted on if you really want).

I think I'd worry more about the car's maintenance history than engine recalls but that's just like, my opinion man :)
