“We are proud that our vehicles have exceeded the expectations of our customers and that AutoPacific has recognized the Kia Optima and Kia Sedona for the second time this summer with the Ideal Vehicle Awards,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America. “Kia is constantly evolving and finding ways to suit the needs and wants of our customers. We are thrilled to see the incredibly high level of satisfaction our customers are experiencing with our vehicles.”

So how do you win this accolade? Well first, you have to be a 2015 or 2016 model, and you have to be owned for 90 days. AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards Committee will send out over 65,000 surveys that focus on 15 key categories owners would like to change about their vehicle, such as ride and handling, interior storage, safety features, power and acceleration, and technology. If you receive the fewest requested changes, you are named the winner of the Ideal Vehicle Awards.

You can experience the 2016 Kia Optima and the 2016 Kia Sedona for yourself at Folsom Lake Kia near the El Dorado Hills, CA area. There are other new and pre-owned Kia vehicles available as well. So what are you waiting for? Come in and see us soon!
