Did you even find that go pro from the 4runner video?

Han Lin says:

Im curious what car do you drive Dave?

senorgato70 says:

Dave, would you ever consider doing a quick review of the trim levels for
your reviews? And include the key differences between trim levels? 

KatiushaVN4 says:

Steering wheel is light and grab a little bit?!?!?

pat mahiney says:

you forgot to signal at 5:15 when you made that turn and also you have a
rip on your sleeve by your wrist on the left arm

Ventura Santos says:

Beautiful car

senorgato70 says:

The Optima is one of my favorite cars in the segment. Exterior design is
dynamic and sporty and the interior is sublime. I’m just wish it had an
AWD option.

Here’s a GREAT 2014 @Kia Optima SX Turbo DETAILED review on @EverymanDriver
with @IMDaveErickson.

TheJackEbrown says:

I love my 2011 kia optima sx turbo. It was a bit uncomfortable at first til
I broke the seats in and the ride is a bit harsh but it handles great in
the curves. Its fast as heck too. I just raced a 5.0 litre mustang on a
curvy road the other day and totally out handled him. Very nimble car.
Great passenger room. I’m a big guy and smaller cars usually drive me
crazy. I’m a bit claustrophobic thus the reason I had to have the panaramic
roof. Honestly….I bought it for the amazing sound system. It totally
makes my tunes rock. I love the USB input. All my music is on a 32gb usb
memory stick I purchased for about $25. NO need to spend $300+ on an ipod..
My only complaint about the stereo is you have to hit ‘random’ everytime
you restart the car. That is so annoying and then it plays the same few
songs everytime until it actually goes into a real random pattern. Now that
summer is coming I’m loving the cooled seats. Like sitting on a block of
ice. The only problem I’ve had is the engine was replaced after a spark
plug exploded and like a dummy I kept trying to restart it thus scoring the
cylinder wall with the fragments. Kia of course replaced the engine under
warranty. Gas mileage could be better but I love to floor it too much!LOL
my previous car was a mercury sable..so you know i’m loving this car!LOL Is
Spicy Red and very sexy!! 

Govin Jodha says:

Sorry dave but im pretty sure the keyless entry feature is not a new
feature on this vehicle, it has been available from the refresh since 2011.

Tech Defender says:

Dave why didn’t kia send the sxL turbo? 

fernando montano says:

Kia and sista Hyundai SUCKS!!! Bulletproof 4 best cars to buy…
TOYOTA,HONDA,NISSAN AND SUBARU.

Franky just says:

Fantastic job bro, the car is nice for the price. Not to sue about the
turbo badge on the side of the car.

TheTallMan35 says:

Steering a bit light and throttle response could be better especially off
the line? You must have been in economy mode, or perhaps they don’t offer
different driver modes in the trim level you were testing.

James Lepair says:

Great video Dave. Unfortunately we don’t get the KIA Optima SX Turbo here
in the Seychelles. So I went for the KIA Optima 2 Litre with the Sports
package. Looks exactly like your tester vehicle from the outside. I’m very
impressed with the quality and finish of this vehicle and you would never
feel that it is a KIA, this car oozes quality like a premium brand. I never
thought that one day I will own a KIA, never in a million years, but i’m
glad I do. Cheers Dave

GiantTurkS says:

The ride is super rough i can’t believe it! But looks better then any BMW
with 4 doors so grab 1 asap!
Dave review mainstream trims for a change… no1 options their car to 70%
mark up so its usually irrelevant. We need more base model videos online
and they don’t exist.

sparater says:

A heads up for everyone that considers buying/renting this car, the
passenger seat on all models is ridiculously low. There is no height
adjuster, and they require you to go purchase special height adjusters… 

Nic Garcia says:

I love KIA


Sotiris Vasilopoulos says:

beautiful but its like a civic copy-paste

ultravioletrayz says:

I noticed that in both this review and in the 0-60 time trials you didn’t
utilize the drive mode select feature and I was curious as to why you
didn’t? The drive mode select adjusts the steering weight and transmission
shift points which would have a noticeable impact on both 0-60 times and
steering feel. I own a 2104 Optima SXL and can tell you from experience
that the difference in acceleration and steering response is much improved
when in the sport mode. I’d love to see an update to both videos utilizing
the sports mode of the drive mode select feature. Keep up the good work!

r1pster says:

If you choose a camry over this… I don’t what to say about you….

Scray1 says:

Why are golf clubs always used as a standard for trunk space?
