Looking for a used #Kia #Optima Hybrid, new #Kia #Rio or new #Hyundai #Elantra as my next car: ^WG

I am not sure where the base 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid that Chris and I drove is right now but I did see it on the LA Auto Show Press Event show floor last month. New 2011’s currently have $1,500 on the hood and the 2012’s have $1,000 on the hood. The 2011 had an invoice price of $24,760 minus the $1,500 bringing the new price to $23,260 minus any holdback. That said, I made a request to buy our used 48 state Optima Hybrid with maybe 15,000 miles on it (I am guessing that it is having even more miles placed on it in a press fleet somewhere?) for just under $20K. I am not sure if Kia can do this or even if it is still available but it does show how much I like the Kia Optima Hybrid. I am also considering a new 2012 Kia Rio EX or SX sedan with the Convenience or Premium Package or Hyundai Elantra GLS with the Preferred Package or Limited with the Technology Package as well.
