Why a kia? My wife and I chose the Optima over the A4. She could have had anything she wanted. Chose the Optima. In fact, after 78,000 miles of just oil changes, brakes and tires, we are finding that it is tough to replace for the value, comfort, features, and warranty that you get elsewhere. No regrets at all will do over and over again if we were given the choice and very well may consider it within the next few months I could only imagine the nightmare that the A4 would have been maintenance wise.
