My niece is looking at a 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid with 9k miles going for just short of $19k.

Dinosaur me didn't know Kia had a hybrid, any opinions / experience welcome.

Thanks.

Same platform as the Hyundai sonata hybrid. I believe they have a 100k battery warranty.

Wayne Gerdes did a cross country hypermiling trip in one and seemed to like it and had good results.

Stueveo,

Thanks for the info. 100k warranty, nice. Very familiar with Wayne's articles, I reference him frequently on hypermiling tips. I'll post him a note over on Cleanmpg.

Beautiful spacious car! Pretty sure it has Lithium batteries.

I followed Wayne during his cross-country trip blogging about every stop and meeting up with people. (I think he drove the Hyundai version). He drove coast to coast on two tanks I think, I know he averaged like 60 mpgs!!!
