Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Traded my wife's 2013 Optima SX Limited on the new 2016 SX. Did not get the Limited because my wife does not like the quilted interior and it's her car. Anyway, with options, the SX has everything the Limited has except for the noted seats. In any case the black leather with red stitching looks very sporty. This is a great mid-sized family sedan and I would suggest you at least give it a look. We are very happy with the new Optima.
