    I have noticed that my 2018 PHEV does not charge when I use a public charger. I have tried two different ones and they do not seem to work. Is there a reason for this? I have no issue with my home charger. They were both free chargers. One was at my work, so I know it works. When I plug in the...

    The other day I changed my cabin filter. It started getting hot here in Texas so I turned my temperature all the way down and the AC on. When the dial is at 3, I get no noise, but once I hit that 4 it sounds like something is out of place. I rechecked the filter to make sure it was installed...

    At first I thought maybe it was just faint and I couldn’t notice it. To test I turned the air off, turned the vent seats on and placed a piece of paper resting upwards on the back of the seat. There was NO movement whatsoever on the paper. I thought maybe just the butt cushion had the...

    Got a really good deal on a 2018 Kia Optima SX. I was looking online and read that Adaptive Cruise, AEB and 360 Camera were standard on it. I was an idiot and didn’t check when I FaceTimed the dealer. Any way I could get these parts ordered and installed? Or am I SOL?

    So I just purchased a base model Optima a few months ago, I didn’t have the money at the time to get the model up with the sunroof and leather seats. I’m going to get leather seats installed next month, and I wanted to get the moonroof installed as well. From what I’m told though, getting a...

    Looking for a good led bulbs for my car. I’ve looked many places and on amazon there’s several ones but I’m not sure besides reading the reviews? I see there’s some with a fabless heat sink and some with a fan. I’m assuming a fan will make noise and I’m not ok with that. So does anyone has...

    Went to Kia dealer today to get remote start installed. I was told Kia did not have a remote start kit for the Turbo and they would outsource to DES to have remote start installed. When I purchased the car two weeks ago the salesman assured me that KIa had the remote start and $850.00 was added...

    This is the first time in a long time that I love my car. I drive a lot and my old car (2015 Prius) just did not make me happy, especially when gas prices dipped right after I got it. I've driven plenty of high-end cars and to me, the Optima really has that feeling. It's a little heavy...
