On October 13, I purchased a black 2013 kia optima ex w/prem & tech packages at Southpoint Kia in Austin ,tx ( I live in SA but started calling around and austin gave me best price) Price after rebates ($1500 total rebates- $500 for kia motor finance and $1000 because my husband owns 04 optima) but before ttl and f & I extras was $24910. I bought service contract for $1100 but no gap. I absouletely LOVED this car ..I was averaging 30-32 mpg which was my main reason for buying the car (gas). It helps that it looks great. Long story short..I was in an accident on 12/18, I was/am ok but the car is now totaled. My first thought DMN..I should have gotten Gap. Anywho, I am blessed and am actually going to walk away with $1500 after loan paid off despite not getting gap. So had to replace my car and yesterday just purchased the tit. silver 2013 kia optima sx (not limited) w/tech and prem package. I called same dealership, my sales guy was no longer there but of course they were happy to help me. Paid $27505 (invoice less $2500 rebates). plus ttl I did get gap this time and I got them down to $800 on the service contract. I will cancel the service contract I bought on the totaled car and get a 95 % refund since only had it for 2 months. I did alot of research and think I got a great deal. Hope this helps. PS- It is wise to get gap..unless you put alot of $$$$ down.
#450 of 476 KIA new incentive for Jan 2013?
Jan 03, 2013 (11:32 am)
Does anyone have access to information on what the new incentives for the Optima will be? The current deals end 1/7/13. I am only eligible for the $1000 lease incentive at this time. I don't qualify for the $2000 competitive cash, college grad or military so wondering if I should wait and see what comes out next. Sometimes new deals are worse, sometimes better... Thoughts? Currently the best deal I can find on the SXL is $31,537-$31,800. I am in SW FL.

I bought EX with Premium and Technology- 29,100 MSRP paid $24,900
Plus VA sales tax, and $389 Processsing fee.
I also got a few hundred $ high on my trade than I anticipated. I got a few internet qoutes in advance, so negotiation only lasted 15 minutes. Easy and overall pretty happy

Have driven a few new ones at work and what a sweet ride these are! Comfy seats, smooth ride and a nice dash...nicer than the Sonata truth be told, I like the look a bit better also. these were the LX models so the EX must really rock! Since these were rental units, they were base LX's but did have Sirius/XM which is very cool. A lot of the rental units that we move have SAT radio which makes longer treks a real pleasure especially when driving across southern Florida from Lauderdale to Ft. Myers/Tampa...go between the '60's, '70's and '80's channels and am a happy camper...especially love the cars with the controls on the steering wheel, a much safer way to go between channels.
Got to give Kia/Hyundai a round of applause...they are finally building cars that folks really want to buy and the excellent warranty is just the icing on the cake!
#456 of 476 Kia Optima EX - purchasing
Feb 23, 2013 (8:12 pm)
Good night all, I am currently looking into purchasing a Kia Optima EX maybe standard. I didn't know what would be a good purchasing price. I went to one dealership and was quoted MSRP 24735.00
359/month * 72(6 years) at 2.9%
based on good credit. My credit is above 750. I had dealer check last year and they said it was above 800.
What do you think. I am willing to pay out of pocket whole thing, but not sure if I should look for a better price. Thanks for any help.

1. 2000 off msrp is easy for the Optima; much competition in that segment
2. with your good credit, join penfed (PFCU) for $15 and get a 1.49% apr loan

Be careful what you pay---either leasing or outright purchase. There is no resale value with the Optima. NONE at all. With that said----the car is beautiful and rides well. But KIA is giving these cars away. That's a really good thing for you because your buying and you should be able to get a terrific deal. Don't let they dealer sway you into thinking invoice or below is not possible ---because it is---Again the big downside of this whole thing is the trade in or resale value. They will give you nothing close to the value---reason----the low selling price of the new models. It's cheaper to get a new one than buy used.So---as the song say's "Be happy". Bottom line--- don't pay anything even close to invoice. Pay below. They will take the deal. Then you have a fighting chance when trade in time comes around. Take it from someone that knows---I'm stuck for another two years on a car I want to unload in the worse way. My Optima is a loaded hybrid that is real crap--2011-- seats are as hard as a bleacher if not harder and 19 mpg in the winter. The car bucks and stammers until 30 mph. Horrible hybrid car ---then add those terrible seats---- well--- you get the idea.
