    So my wife's 2013 Optima SXL has had an issue over the past month where if she has to brake suddenly the RPM gauge drops to 0. It will stay at 0 until the car is stopped, shut off and then turned back on. Also when this happens the car will stutter/loss of power for a few seconds on...

    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...

  10. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    This might not come as news to anyone, but I just noticed the other night that there are lights in the front doors below the armrests, that shine down onto the door pockets. I rarely have anything in those pockets so never noticed the red light, but had a water bottle in there the other day...
