  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So my wife's 2016 seems to be getting worse and worse with the adaptive cruise control. The issue is anything to the right of the car, either traffic in the right lane, or a car in the turn lane, seem to trigger it to slow down, sometimes rather harshly! Cars on the left don't seem to cause...

    MY19 Optima GT cruise control not maintaining speed Hi, We picked up our new Optima GT a couple of weeks ago and have noticed that the cruise control isn't maintaining the set speed very well. On moderate hill climbs it's dropping down by as much as 15kph and then on the downhill run its...
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I did read the owners manual, and if I missed what I am about to ask I am sorry. I just picked up my 16 SX Turbo yesterday and I have a question about the adaptive cruise control. Is there a way to use the cruise control in the "old school" setting where you don't use the part that keeps the...
  4. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    As a disclaimer, I have read the owner’s manual about the adaptive cruise control. Of course, reading and using it in real life may differ. I’ve had the occasion to make the rather boring trip from Las Vegas, NV to Phoenix, AZ several times over the past few months. I use the Sport mode and set...

    2013 Optima EX with 57,500 miles. Cruise control activates (green "Cruise" illuminated). Sets and maintains speed just fine. When you try to accelerate using the ACC/RES steering wheel switch, it starts to accel and then the cruise control completely disarms (green indicator goes out)...

    My 2016 Optima has an issue with the cruise. When the target speed is set it will maintain good but when it overruns three or four MPH going down a grade, when again on level ground it will drop 3 or 4 MPH below set speed before re engaging with a heavy surge of throttle. Anyone know if there...

    since there's very little info on the manual trans 2011 Optima's, i decided i would get a cruise control install thread started. there's 2 ways to do it. 1. find a used LX or EX wheel without paddle shifters that has cruise installed on the wheel. wiring plugs directly into the clock spring...
  8. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So I was driving my wifes SXL the other day with the cruise on, when the car in front of me slowed for a turn, the adaptive cruise slowed me down to almost a stop, and then accelerated once the car had turned. I was wondering if anyone knows if the brakes lights come on when it slows like this...

    I have a 2011 Optima with a 6spd manual transmission. I'd like to add cruise control. Has anyone done this yet? Is the part I need the steering wheel wiring harness setup?
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I am not sure of this applies to all variants, but I discovered on my hybrid that if I hold down the set button and try to scroll with the trip button the center display no longer scrolls. Thought that was weird, wonder if that happens to others too? Anyone have an idea what might cause this...

    My Optima didn't come with a cruise control because it's the manual. But I found online the factory switch and wiring about $100. Before I purchase it, I wanna know if the cruise control module is already in the car and just not hooked up. Would anybody happen to know? It's the only thing...
