Howdy from California!

My name is John and I am from the Central Valley in California, USA. I have been very excited about the K5 Optima for about a year and was getting close to getting a 2013 SXL, probably in March or April of this year. Now I am being very seriously tempted to wait and investigate the K7 Cadenza and maybe pull the trigger on the "7" instead of the "5". I look forward to this forum growing and being as supportive and technically helpful as the Optima Forum has been. There are already quite a few bits of wisdom for the "7" not even being available stateside yet. I'm glad to be here!

welcome to the forum John.

Good thing you didn't buy the Optima. When I saw the Optima I was surprised Kia was capable of designing such a car, it's what drew me into the brand. Also the Kia GT concept seen at many of the auto shows across the globe.

Thankfully I held off on getting the Kia Optima, as the Cadenza/K7 is looking to be a much nicer vehicle, also bigger too!

Would you be getting a Kia K7 as it becomes available stateside or going to wait it out?
I will probably get a K7 as soon as I can do side-by-side test drives and convince myself (and the wife) which suits us best. I am on the older end of middle-age, so a larger car with more amenities (class) would be as important as raciness and a sporty image. I really think the K7 will be a stunner in person, much as the K5 is. I may even purchase a Sorento SXL at the same time if finances coincide with any excitement that ensues when I see both of the new models (K7 and Sorento). I bought a Sorento in 2003 when they first came to the U.S. and it was probably the most trouble-free vehicle I have ever owned. I bought my daughter a 2007 Spectra new and she has had absolutely no issues with it either. Kia has truly got its act together I do believe. I wouldn't hesitate at all to buy another (or two). It's really pretty difficult to wait...
