Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Kia Optima PHEV estate?
If you’re buying a Kia Optima Sportswagon PHEV through the official approved used dealer network, make sure they’ve added the additional two years of coverage to the car, bringing it back up to seven. Insist that the car comes with all the relevant charge cables and check that they’re in good condition.
Make sure the alloy wheels haven’t been heavily kerbed and that there aren’t any serious dents or scratches in the paintwork. Check the interior for signs of wear, too. It is tough but can show scuffs in some of the cheaper bits of plastic. Examine the boot carpet for stains and make sure that the roof lining is in good order, because some estate owners like to fill their cars to the ceiling.
