New Wheels

I bought a 2012 Optima EX Turbo this weekend. I deem it the common man’s luxury car. LOVE this thing already. So fun to drive and has all the bells and whistles; heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, voice command for everything, hands-free calling, wireless music streaming (via Bluetooth), built-in navigation with a really intuitive user interface (that actually works), dual sunroofs (front and rear), rear view camera, powered “folding” side mirrors, cooled glove box, an 8-speaker Infinity sound system (that sounds great)… the list goes on.  It’s got a little 2.0L engine, but the Turbo kicks it up to 274 horsepower, making it really quick.  And it still gets around 36 MPG on the highway.  Kia really did it right with this one. I’ve had two BMW’s (2005 and 2006 3 series) and this thing is every bit as nice and fun to drive.
