    Just purchased a 2002 Kia Optima in red, low mileage and great looking body. Has anyone had problems with; 1)the engine light come one. The seller says it was sent to get fix but halfway to my house the engine light game back on. 2) the front passenger door sticks. It opened when it feels like it, with or without the key or keyless What should I do besides taking it in to be looked at by a machanic?

    Good and cheap but watch out if time is important to you.

    <p>What can you say about Kia? They are cheap and they run very well. However, individual parts tend to stop working. I actually lost count of how many times I had to return my Kia Optima to the dealer because of the engine light. Fortunately, with the 5 year warranty and good service, I never had to pay a penny to fix any of the problems. Two of the major components in the car, the computer and fuel injector have been replaced and the alternator has been replaced twice. Since I am retired, I had the time for all of these repairs. But for working people I cannot recommend a Kia. The warranty is great but better reliability is more advantageous when you are working. If you buy a used Kia, the price will be right and you might get one with lots of new parts. But it is a gamble. If your money is real tight and you need good transportation, the Kia might be a good option, although many American cars also sell real cheap when used. For people living in the Sunbelt, the Kia might also be a good choice since the AC has never failed.</p>
