    Hey there, This is my first winter driving a front-wheel drive vehicle. All of my Lexus vehicles were rear-wheel drive, which meant brand and size were crucial to holding the road. I know that FWD cars do have better handling in poor weather, but need some input before I make my winter tire...

    I just bought a new to me, 2015 Optima EX. I love it. I just sold my 2010 (bought in 2009) Kia Soul. Loved that car! 440,000 Kms on her and she is still going strong! That is why I am still a Kia man!

    Am I going crazy here or is ~$2100 + labor + tax crazy to replace a light bulb??? I hit a deer last winter and part of the costs when fixing it was indeed a $2096.41 "Lamp" for the drivers side. Can they not just buy a new D1S bulb and replace it? I'm absolutely flabbergasted they want this...

    Just purchased new 2018 Optima SXL. Only issue was with the memory seat settings, corrected by setting. Like the fit , finish and handling of the car.

    So I've been trying for a few days to source some new plugs for my 2014 SX turbo, and the only place I can find a set is a Kia dealer who needs to special-order them in at $48 PER PLUG. No thanks, especially since they won't lube it up first! :lipsrsealed: I've found that NGK's website(s) do...

    I have a 2016 Kia optima Hybrid EX. Looked at threads already trying to find how to switch my climate control from F to C. What is listed to do doesn't work in the threads I found. Hold down the mode button then hold down the dual button for 3 or so seconds. Tried it repeatedly and nothing. Need...
