  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I owned a 2013 Optima SXL for several years. Last year, I rear ended someone and totaled my car. I hit a early 2000's Explorer, which suffered minimal damage, but my Optima was absolutely crushed. The most concerning part to me was that my airbags did not go off. My wife and I will be having...

    I just bought a certified pre-owned 2018 Optima. It does not have any charging ports in the back seat. If I install some on the back side of the center console, will it void the factory warranty? Thanks!

    It's been quite a while since I have been on so posting here to start things off fresh. Have 102,000 miles on my 2012 SX and it is still my daily driver. Up until the extended warranty expired at 100K I had almost zero issues with my car. All regularly scheduled maintenance done at the...

    My 2015 Optima EX only has 11k miles and I've noticed this issue for a long time now, maybe since new. I'll windex the inside of the windshield and within days or a week, it'll develop a thin film of something on the inside of the windshield again. Almost like what you see from heavy smokers who...

We still have 60,000 miles left on the warranty on this car, plus it's paid off, so I'm trying to find a way...
