    Hello all, I bought a used 16 optima lx. First time Kia owners. I have a question please. I have the stock lx radio. The Voice recognition and phone buttons don't work without power on the radio first. Is this normal? Thanks.

    Hi all! I am new here, and am very grateful to have found this forum! I am about to purchase a 2016 Optima SXL from a Kia dealer in another state. It only has about 18,000 miles on it and from the pictures I have seen, it looks pristine. However, I noticed the other night that the faceplace...

    Hello, I'm considering purchasing a 2015 Kia Optima and had a few questions about upgrading the stereo, remote start, etc.
  4. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just curious what you guys think about trading in a 2013 sx with 100k trouble free miles for a 2019 ex with premium. The biggest things I was looking for was Android auto and the smart cruise control to help with my daily nightmare commute. Looks like the decontented a few things like power...

    Hi everyone, I don't post here very often but I have a question concerning headlights. I have a 2011 LX. The stock halogen lowbeams are a bit underwhelming at times, I make relatively frequent trips on long dark highways at night, and I use my highbeams when I can but those would undoubtedly...

    There are arguably more aftermarket wheels available today than ever before - but how do you know which ones fit? Your vehicle requires a wheel with a specific bolt pattern in order for it to safely fit. This is determined by the number of bolt holes the wheel has and how they are spaced...

    And it was mentioned how off the offset was and that it probably would not work/be safe. Can this be confirmed one way or another since I saw this photo posted on a K5 facebook group. So what's the verdict, I would love to throw these badboys on my SX

    Hey guys, I recently replaced my front bumper and fender due to a hit and run. My issue I’m having is that the left side of the bumper where the fender and bumper meets won’t pop in all the way. What should I do? Should I take the bumper off and reinstall it? Please advise.

    I’ve had it this car for about a month and it has a weird hesitation problem when you let go of the break and right before you hit the gas it feels like it’s going to stall but it doesn’t. Also when you take your foot off the break and let it glide for a few seconds it has the same feeling. It...

    Hey Group, I just wanted to check and see if anyone on here has the 1.6 Turbo engine with the Dual Clutch Transmission. My 2017 Optima is the Turbo Eco model and while I love it, I have questions about the reliability of the DCT. Has anyone had any issues with theirs? How do you maintain it...
  13. Hybrids
    Currently I have a 2015 Optima EX with 25,600 miles. I'm considering switching over to a New 2017 Optima Hybrid EX. What do you guys think about your Hybrids? I know the EX is a step up from the LX but how does it compare to the Premium? Looking at doing this on 1/25/18 and any and all input...

    I was looking online at other cars I was interested in and then stumbled on a review for an Optima LX Turbo.<br>It looked like it had everything I want for a good price.  I wanted a car with long lasting and inexpensive 16 inch tires and no sunroof, but with a good amount of tech features such...

    I have a 2015 Optima LX with the factory 16"s. I have been looking into getting them vinyl wrapped, but it seems most threads on this are pretty old. Anyone ever wrapped the factory rims for the 2015 LX? I am curious if they can be fully wrapped or if only the fronts can be done. Thanks in...
