    Hi! My name is Jessica, live in sunny southern California. I've had my 2014 KIA Optima Hybrid EX for a little over 3 years now. I love the MPGS since I commute about 50+ miles per day! I've been having issues with car washers (unknowingly) leaving my vehicle on and draining my battery! I just...

    Im looking to install a radio in the trunk of my 2014 Optima Hybrid. The radio requires a 12v all the time hot wire and ground. Easy enough for me to wire directly to the 12v battery for this. However I need to find a 12v power source that is powered by the ignition being powered on. Any advice...

    Hey everyone. I know the maintenance sub-forum is probably a better place for this question, but I can't post there so here it is: I recently purchased a 2014 Optima EX. It has a lot of miles on it, and I'm not sure if the intake valves have ever been cleaned, so I bought some CRC GDI intake...

    I've seen a bunch of threads about how annoying it is to have to click on the "I Agree" button every time you start the car on a 2014 with navi. And none of them have an answer on how to fix it. Well... a software update fixes it. I reluctantly dropped the $149 to do the software/map update...

    I should probably know this, but I am questioning what I assumed. I purchased a 2014 Kia Optima EX, used/certified from a Kia dealer near me about 13 months ago. Is the original 10/100,000 mile warranty still in effect OR did it revert to a 5 year/60,000 warranty due to the fact it's no longer...

    Hello, I've been on the forum a few times but just recently signed up. We bought the car used in October 2017 with 60 000km on it. So far put another 8000 on it. Its been great so far.

    Just got a used Optima EX Hybrid (traded in a 2008 Dodge Charger RT) and wow I am loving it so far. I'm downloading the map update as we (figuratively) speak and may make a few small cosmetic mods in the future.
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, just was curious if anyone else has experienced this. I drive a 2014 Optima EX with the 2.4L engine and do a mixture of highway and city driving. My car has 78K miles on it and only maintenance I have done to it are oil changes, front brakes, 4 new tires, coolant, basically have...

    Hi all, My name is Ron and I am a first time Kia owner of a 2014 Optima LX. Can the radio be upgraded to the ones that have the navigation built in? Plug and play? or ???? Will I loose any functionality (steering wheel controls, aux in, usb etc) Thanks Ron
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    OK - so this is completely my fault. I purchased a 2014 Optima EX a year ago. First time buying a newer vehicle. It didn't even register with me that the car wouldn't have a spare tire in the trunk. I noticed about a month ago, it has the tire repair kit. No spare tire and no jack. Any...

    Just picked up a gently used 2014 SX Turbo with Navigation. Been really loving it so far, but had a few questions/comments. The wife and kids are complaining about the low front passenger seat, so I will probably purchase the kit to raise it up. The emblem on the back of the car is a weird...

    Hey, one question. Can anybody tell me whether the connectors from the 2013 model fit the headlights from the 2014 model with the integrated drl's (plug n play). Thanks in advance. Sebastian
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Looking at a new(to me, most likely used) sporty sedan. Has to carry my family of four to school and back, family vacatins, and be my daily. Looked very closely at the Optima LX (great exterior, cheap interior, weak handling, ok performance) and mazda6 (funky exterior, great interior, great...

    My car died at an intersection after the HCS warning light came on. It would not start and they had to tow it to the nearest KIA dealer (not my normal dealer). They spent 4 hours testing, kept the vehicle overnight, and opened a techline case regarding this. Here was the result: Techline...

    All 3 of these lights come and stay on while the car is in use. At first it was just sporadic, all the lights would come on, then would turn off car and restart and they'd be off. Now they stay on all the time. Any ideas?
