    So, I'm having a headache over the last week. I found a nice 2015 SXL with 46k miles. The car is leased via Kia Finance. I want to buy from the buyer by us making a joint payment to Kia to pay out the lease. Question is: will Kia transfer the title in my name right away instead of: (1) in...

    Hello, newbie here... I've been admiring the Optima for quite some time and I'm planning to buy one in the next week or so. I'd love to have an SXL, but that's not in my limited budget at the moment. For starters, I'm going the pre-owned route(2016 or so) and the max I can spend is around...

    I was looking online at other cars I was interested in and then stumbled on a review for an Optima LX Turbo.<br>It looked like it had everything I want for a good price.  I wanted a car with long lasting and inexpensive 16 inch tires and no sunroof, but with a good amount of tech features such...

    What color are you getting ... Exterior? Interior? I personally wish Kia were a little more creative with their colors.

    Hi everyone! I'm looking at possibly replacing a car with a new-to-me Optima. I've read about some engine issues that the model had, and came here to look for more info. The thread on engine failures is an impressive resource! The three cars I'm looking at are a 2011 Optima, 2013 Optima, and...

    Greetings all! For years I have dreamed of owning a 2011+ Optima SX. After much research and comparison it always came out on top for my personal needs. I originally wanted a SWP one, however where I live they GO FAST! And the ones you can find have some dings, dents, scuffs, etc. However, Now...

    If there were enough chargers around I would have put the 1K down :cool:

    Looking to buy a CP-E catback in great condition for my 12 US SX. Live in Pittsburgh, so unless you're close, it'll need shipped. Just seeing if I can get offers before having to buy one brand new. Let me know.

    With the new 2016s here, let's compare prices paid and the overall buying experience. Be sure to include your tax rate and dealer fees if you post your Out The Door price.

    How's everybody doing? I was hoping some of you could help me out in finding a place where I can purchase SX bumpers online. Anyone who has gone through the process of switching out the bumpers, any insight would be much appreciated.

    It should be a common check when buying a car to have a four wheel alignment measured. Do some or most auto shops provide a CHECK at no charge with an oil change or a small charge? It's the fixing they want to charge $65-120 to do plus any parts you may need, right? Seems around the midwest...
