  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi All, I have been dealing with a slew of issues with my 2017 Optima FE (LX). About a week ago, I got in the car to go get gas (I was pretty low) and it would not start. It would sound like the engine is attempting to start, and all of the power accessories turned on (lights, multimedia, A/C...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hey everyone, I hope you all are well! I am trying to figure out exactly how I can remove my center console armrest on a 2017 Kia Optima lx since it has no physical screws to remove. When I lift the lid there are no screws to remove, and I am hoping I don’t have to take the whole center console...

    Hello all, As the title suggests, one day my mirrors stopped folding when I lock the car. The confirmation horn on the second click of the key fob stopped working as well. I checked and the mirror motors still work, when I flip the switch they fold and unfold. I’ve searched through for forums...

    I have a 2017 optima sx with the panoramic sunroof, no mechanical or cosmetic issues however yesterday I was on the freeway when the sunroof opened by its left. I tried closing it immediately but the buttons weren’t responding. I pulled over, turned the car off and on and was able to use the...
  7. The Service Center
    Hello folks, thank you for taking the time to read my post and hopefully help me out. BTW I love this car. I need the part that goes between parts 21 and 22. The parts guy at the local dealer is less than helpful.

  9. Hybrids
    Went out to the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid in my driveway this afternoon and went to start it up and after pushing the start button and the system self check a "STOP VEHICLE AND CHECK BRAKES" warning appeared in the middle of the digital display. Now for the fun part... The car was driven earlier...
  10. Hybrids
    While I had almost 75% battery when i plugged in for the night, when i got up the next morning, I was surprised to find what appeared to be a dead key fab, but once i grabbed the backup, and still had response from the vehicle when attempting to unlock it, I realized there was definitely...
  11. Engine and Technical Discussion
    I made a post as you know, trading in my 2011 kia optima with 101k miles on it but a replaced engine for this 2017 kia sportage with the 2.4 theta ii. I originally understood that after mid 2015, these motors had a “refresh” preventing them from having rod bearing issues like my 2011 did. Well...
  12. Hybrids
    It seems that right after I come to a stop, my car is reluctant to get moving again. If I've sat at a stop light (for example) for 10s of seconds, the car is very responsive when it's time to get moving again, just like you'd expect from a car with a high-torque electric motor. But if I come...

    I have just purchased a like new 17 Optima EX. It is "loaded" with whistles and bells and I am trying to twist my way through the manuals and make sense out of them. There are two things that are giving me a significant challenge. First, the User's Manuals that came with the car have a RED and...

    I was looking at KIA’s parts website and it lists the different headlight setups and it listed the ones with LED, HID as being compatible with my car. Mine has the two low beam projector lights and two standard high beams. They all use halogen. My question is, is it possible to buy the...
  15. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    First I would like to offer a 7 year belated thanks to homebrwd for all the awesome explanations in the stickied tire and wheel FAQ thread. I feel like I learnt so much and now realize that I'm more confused than when I started. I'm cheap and want to get some cheap rims for my 2017 LX. I found...

    I was in the market for a hybrid or PHEV and saw that a local dealership had a new (technically a "demo") fully loaded 2017 hybrid (EX trim + technology package + white leather interior) at a massive discount. I had had good experience with Kia (my previous vehicle was a 2015 Forte LX) so after...
