    Greetings all! Just picked up my first Optima today. It's a black 2014 SXL. Test drove about 6 different Optimas over the past week. Absolutely in love with it. I look forward to learning more about these great cars. Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend as much as I am!

    Hello, everyone! First time Kia owner after owning a number of Hondas (still have an Acura MDX and Honda Prelude Type SH in the stable), I picked up a 2013 Optima SX Turbo in red, which as I'm writing this, is being shipped from up north. So for now, my obligatory first pic below is courtesy of...

    Hi, my wife and I bought a 2012 Optima T-GDI. Love it except when hard accelerating the steering wheel feels very strange and way too responsive like a 1 inch pull either way makes the vehicle lunge toward that way. Anyways, tell me what you think.

    Just bought a 2016 Sparkling silver Optima on Saturday. Didn't intend on getting a 2016 but the price was right.

    Hi, I bought a 2016 SX Turbo with the technology package at the end of May. I have been enjoying the new beast. Had a lot of fun playing with the paddle shifters in the north Georgia mountains/hills. I originally wanted to buy a car with Apple Carplay. I gambled that Kia would send out an...

    I purchased my car at Ray Skillman Westside but don't really want to go there for service as the area is pretty sketchy. I am considering Butler Kia near 96th and Keystone. Any thoughts? For those of you who live in the Indy area, which dealers would you recommend for service, etc? Thanks, David
