    Hello folks, thank you for taking the time to read my post and hopefully help me out. BTW I love this car. I need the part that goes between parts 21 and 22. The parts guy at the local dealer is less than helpful.
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just got my new 2016 Kia Optima SXL yesterday! I need a car cover for it though, and am having trouble deciding on one. Need to spend less than $200 on a cover. I was looking at the CoverCraft Reflectect. Then I noticed that it has the "mirror" pockets on the cover...a lot of different types...
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    We've got a 2016 Optima SXL that should be delivered soon. It has the Ivory Nappa leather seats. I'd like to get some kind of "tasteful" cover for the center console armrest. I tend to rest my arm there a lot while driving, and would like some protection for it, but something that doesn't...

    I scratched my steering wheel the other day. Not very deep but it leaves a rough touch. I tried some leather healing milk but no luck. I decided to cover it for now and when I get a chance I'll ask either my dealer or a detailer about the scratch. For now I found a steering wheel cover...

    Hi Guys, My driver side bulb is out and I'm trying to get it replaced. The housing cover is stuck and won't open. I've unscrewed the White reservoir and put it to the side but for the life of me I can't open the cover. I've read somewhere that there is a screw somewhere underneath but can't...

    2014 SX-L with D steering wheel. Has anyone found a steering wheel cover that works yet? My wheel is worn badly and I'm tired of it. Hate to replace it that's for certain.
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    In case you weren't aware of this...the lower cover on the SX/SXL has a removable skid plate. The skid plate is the part with the "fins" below the silver/chrome trim. Once the cover is removed the skid plate is held on by the silver/chrome trim, about 14 screws (9 of these screws hold the...

    Talking '11/'13 Anybody know what the difference in the SX rear bumper cover might be, or is it a combination cover and lower panel that is SX only?
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Anybody on here that has a 2016 Kia Optima SX with a rear end like the one pictured? The lower cover with dual exhaust appears to be the same style as the single exhaust cover - not the "normal" cover on the Optima SXs/SXLs I can find pictures of. There is a seller on ebay that claims to have...

I assume the battery...
