    Hey kids! So for all of us super stoked folks who love our new optima a bit too much.....i might be a tinge bit nervous about the fact that there isn't a locking gas cap available for the 2019 optima?? Any suggestions? Thanks! PS. I love my car!!
  2. The Service Center
    So I bought this 2014 Kia Optima about a month ago. I notice that the gas cap doesn't click when I tighten it. I've had the check engine light come on after getting gas twice. It goes away fairly quickly though. Should I get a new cap? Is there a recommendation on what I should buy? Thanks.

    Any sites where I can find a replacement tow eye cap? I could only find black ones on ebay. I'm looking for a white one.

    My rebadged 2016 Optima LX (Sparkling Silver) Installed my badges/emblems that I purchased from Optima Store. Here is some quick phone pics. :) I'm happy with all the badges except the horn badge. The horn badge I received was slightly scratched and one of the edges was a little rough...

    Install both today. I put a lot of strut bars on over the years the best I have ever own. The cap is worth the price. Thanks K5 Optima Store.
  6. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Too often but not every time I hear a whrrring sound in the area of the gas cap for about a second - sometimes a little screech at the end - and two service writers have opined that (1) it's the fuel pump fan and OK, and (2) its air pressure escaping and OK. Any thoughts on what it may be are...

  11. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    When I got my 2015 SXL I started modding everything. One thing I always do is remove the word "Kia" (and most "Optima") from everywhere on the car. But on my chrome rims I could not find a center chrome rim cap replacement I liked to replace the stock Kia branded ones. I did not want a...

    Hi everyone!! I have a question about the removal of the center cap of the OEM 16" rims and how durable the clips are holding the center caps. I was shown that it just pops off by pushing it out from the rear. Is there a proper way to do it? Also how is it holding up for people who pops...
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just purchased a '13 LX Hybrid that came with the miracle Nitrogen tire refill. I believe that this is an unnecessary money making gimmick, which was verified in my search of previous threads on the topic. My question is, should I delate and refill with 78% Nitrogen (air) or just add air to...

    Hey gang... I had my rims powder coated including the SX luxury rim center cap but I don't like the look of them. Doing searches on this forum and google, I can find the bore circumference but all results yield caps for the smaller diameter hole in the LX/EX rims. Id like to (1) buy some red...
