    The first time I ever came across lap3 was when I met a good friend of mine. I met him through Facebook where I had no idea someone tuned with a KIA lived 15 minutes away. I had owned the car for a year and was not aware of the platform for optimas. After a good long conversation with him about...

    Unfortunately I'm having a trunk issue where it opens randomly while in park and driving. I'll close it and it will laugh and pop open. I'll close it once and it's happy, but sometimes the trunk and I go back and forth maybe 5-10 times. Been searching on the forum but haven't really found the...

    Bought my 2015 new in 2015, looking at a 2018, maybe 2019. Bought it for my fiancé, who since upgraded to a Sportage, so I sold my 2008 Mazda 6 and started driving the Optima. It’s just an LX, does my 125 mile daily commute well, did a couple things aesthetically, but it’s stock. Definitely...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just called Kia Canada to see if I can get the cars history. I even called the 2 dealers that show up on carfax. I was told the only warranty repair that comes up is, valve cover gasket, oil feed line and tubes and the turbo. This was done this passed summer. So the turbo has less than 6k kms...

  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Got my car yesterday. Traded my 13 KOH EX PREMIUM. So far loving the acceleration. Ride is a bit stiff but that might be due to the winter tires I have on. Got an oil change done today with Castrol edge 5w30 synthetic and changed the air filter with a K&N drop 8n filter. I'm a bit disappointed...

    When I turn my AC on Auto or the highest fan setting when it's really hot out hear in Florida, it seems overly noisy. Almost like another unit in the engine area has kicked on to help. If I turn the fan down a few notches, the sound dims down. Whatever the sound is, it seems louder than the...

    Hello everyone. I'm Zeeshan from Memphis, Tennessee. Got a 2015 Optima SXL in Ebony Black just last week with 38,500 miles on it. The car is practically brand new with no signs of wear at all. Guess you could say I lucked out. One major factor in purchasing this car was the Infinity sound...

    Hey all, Just picked up my 2015 SXL and love it, love it, love it. There is one thing that popped up and I wanted to ask you about: I was driving in a high traffic area (LA, peak hour..:rolleyes:) for maybe an hour or so, used Eco mode and Sport mode for a bit, all in all maybe 20-30% of the...
