The 2018 Kia Optima: Why It's a Good Buy for Fitchburg Drivers

Good fuel economy & good acceleration. If you are a new car shopper, then likely one concern you have today is the cost of fuel. With the 2018 Kia Optima, you'll be more than pleasantly surprised at just how far you can go between fuel-ups with either of its three available engines.

The first and standard engine for this model is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that's combined with a six-speed automatic transmission. This is a pairing that delivers a zippy 185 horsepowers while simultaneously offering an above-average fuel economy of 25 miles per gallon in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

For those Fitchburg car buyers looking for a bit extra, there are two turbocharged engine options. The first is a 1.6-liter engine paired with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission that really gives you a feeling of power behind the wheel as it churns out 178 horsepower. Plus you get better fuel efficiency with its EPA-estimated rating of 28 mpg city and 37 highway. The other turbo option is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's even more satisfying to drive with 245 horsepower but the fuel economy here does drop to 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Spacious cabin renown for safety. Both drivers and passengers will enjoy just how spacious and comfortable the cabin of the 2018 Kia Optima. The front-row seating has a nice cockpit-like design that incorporates refined ergonomics so that both the driver and front-seat passenger will feel relaxed and supported during long drives.

Your Kia Maintenance Schedule

There's a lot of work that goes into owning a car, especially if you want to keep yours in good shape for many miles to come. The best way to make sure your Kia lasts a long time and runs smoothly the whole time you drive it is to schedule regular maintenance. In fact, a little bit of maintenance can save you tons of potential repair costs. One of the toughest parts about keeping up with maintenance on your Kia is knowing when it's time to take your car to a mechanic. The best thing you can do is talk with your local Kia dealer and figure out a schedule for when you can take your car in. If you're in the Madison, WI, area, the best place to schedule your Kia service is Russ Darrow Kia of Madison.

Finding Your Kia’s Maintenance Schedule

Determining how often you need to have your Kia serviced starts with figuring out the recommended intervals between various types of service. For example, your tires need to be changed a lot more often than transmission fluid but not nearly as often as you should change your oil. You can find more information about the recommended intervals between each type of service by reading your owner's manual or talking to a mechanic.

In addition to keeping up with the little maintenance tasks, you should also have a tune-up done at certain milestones to make sure you're keeping everything in good shape. A lot of mechanics will recommend you have a 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000-mile maintenance appointment at the very least. However, you should never wait until the next maintenance appointment if you think there's something wrong with your Kia.
