  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    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...
  2. 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.

    Hello from Australia's Capital with my 2017 Optima GT.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  9. The Service Center
    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...
  10. 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 bought them and went to have them installed and they said they didnt fit. They came from china. I just want to know if anyone has purchased some of these in america or a...

    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...

    Hey everyone I am thinking about getting an Optima I used to have a 2012 SX but recently had an Altima that was totaled in an accident but I have decided I miss the Optima and want to get an SX or SXL again for my next vehicle. I found a nice 2017 SX Certified...

  18. Hybrids
    Hi everyone! I'm planning to buy an Optima plug-in but I can't find any official tech info on the climate control; what is your experience with it? Is A/C pushing fine? Is A/C working in full electric mode without turning the gas engine on? Can't find info about heater too: does it turn the gas...

    This is my first Kia and it will mainly be used for daily commuting. I can't decide between a 2017 LX with 33k miles or a 2012 SX Turbo with 66K miles. they are roughly the same price. I am leaning towards the SXT since it has nicer interior and seems like it would be funner to drive but the...
