  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    The other day I changed my cabin filter. It started getting hot here in Texas so I turned my temperature all the way down and the AC on. When the dial is at 3, I get no noise, but once I hit that 4 it sounds like something is out of place. I rechecked the filter to make sure it was installed...

    HI...thanks for the help in the past and looks like I still need some help. 2016 SXL and when changing oil, I do use the OEM Kia filter without question.

    Hi everyone, I went to local autozone and other auto stores nearby my house and there is nothing on getting an air filter and cabin air filter for my 2016 Kia Optima Lx-T. I don't want to go to my local Kia shop just to purchase a $50 air filter. Might as well get a K&N Air filter for that...

  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    With the 2016 Optima (outside the US) coming with a "clean air" system, these vehicles usually have a different cabin air filter than the standard ones in our cars.

  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I had to ask the oil change technician to repeat himself twice when he told me the price of the cabin filter. $79.00!!! That's insane!! he took the old one out and it was filthy with leaf debris and dirt, but at that price I told him to put it back in. The thing is a cheap piece of...

    So basically as the title says, the optimas (as much as love them) are not very acoustically sound vehicles. I have a kicker 800 watt sub and amp in a nice Ported enclosure in the trunk. It booms when the rear seat is down, but it is very much lacking when the seats an windows are up. Any ideas...

    With the automatic climate control system, I'm trying to get air from outside into the car, without the thermostat affecting the temperature - basically what is a "vent" setting on manual a/c units that I've had. When I push the off button, then turn the fan button up a notch or two, it seems...
