    I was under the hood this morning just checking things over after a dealer visit for the engine recall. I noticed a small block of foam stuck to the engine block just above the alternator and next to the spark plug. Don`t remember seeing it before but it looks like it has been there a long time...

    My mom's 2012 Optima EX engine seized and replaced under warranty last week. I posted her experience in thread Engine Failure thread. You can read my post in there for all info. Have the replacement long blocks been revised to prevent the oil starvation issues that cause the engines to...

    Just purchased a 2013 Kia Optima LX. I'm located in Kentucky. I had a jeep Wrangler before my optima. But looking at making some mods to the Kia and just wanna see what's suggested. First thing I'll probably do is tint the windows. But I can't decide if I wanna do 5, 10, or 15. Thankful for any...
