    Glad to be here, I'm Jon. Currently in the florida panhandle. I found this forum in my searches for info about mid sized sedans while checking around for a new car. We lost one vehicle during hurricane Michael, but where there's loss, there's gain. Did plenty of my due diligence, asking the...

  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My wife and I bought 2 new EX's in 2013. The only difference was that hers had the Nav and Electronic packages (sunroof, rear camera, etc). At 68k miles I gave mine to my daughter. I took my wife's with 24k miles. I drive the exact same 92miles 5 days per week. My EX got 34 mpg every tank, every...

    Hello - I'm from the Dallas area and this is the first time I have been to this forum. I have been extremely happy with my Optima but I am having an issue with one of my "HID Headlights/LED Positioning Lights" - this has brought me to a search for a solution. The passenger side Headlight...

    My average mpg is usually about 25 or so, but as I was driving it just kept dropping and dropping really fast every few seconds. It's down to about 5mpg right now and I'm worried something might have happened? My car never did this. I didn't drive very far cuz I'm at work so idk if my gas is...

    I'm about to purchase a new 2014 Optima SXL in a few hours. I did my search and loan through Penfed and my cost before TTL will be slightly under $31,000. That seems like a darn good deal right? Also, Penfed is letting me borrow $39,500 at 0.49% over a 3 year term. The total cost including TTL...

    I just got off of the phone with Ryan at Nameless. They are down to 7 Intercoolers with no plans to make any more in the foreseeable future. Just a heads up for anyone thinking about getting one. They also cut 100 bucks off the price tag.

    Recently I'm seeing that my exhaust tips seem to get black drip marks on them almost instantly after cleaning them. I noticed this a few weeks ago after having washed the car, and a few days later exhaust tips were really black.....I cleaned them again yesterday, and today there's already drip...

    Never thought I'd notice a big difference, but our full 18.5-ish gallon tank really adds some drag. Had it at a little over 1/4 tank when i drove the 130 miles home from my parents place after the holiday, and got 37mpg average. Usually would only get about 32-35 on a relatively full tank. Also...

    4k miles on my 2013, and had to lock up the brakes. Good times. I hope they got to the grocery store a few seconds earlier than they would have otherwise! Or at least had some stains to clean up... Oh, and excuse the music - my daughter got to pick today. --BL

    Haven't had a chance to upload pictures, but I freaking love this car. Titanium Gray, Premium Touring & Technology packages. Not looking to do anything major any time soon other than privacy tinting.

    Hey guys, have a 2012 Optima SX - car has 2250 miles on it. There is a loud noise, sounds like road noise but don't think its that... its like dutdutdutdut Doesn't matter if your turning or driving straight. You notice it more when driving straight cause you don't hear the wheel or anything...
