  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    My 2019 optima SX has started having a rattle from the driver's door or b pillar on the driver's side. The sound is intermittent at lower speeds, but pretty constant the second you hit sixty. Oddly enough, the sound disappears when I crack the window. I know how "hard" it is for dealerships to...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    so I got side swiped the other day and it damaged my mirror on our 2016 kia optima ex. I bought a replacement and switched it out. Now here comes the issues. I went to lock it after replacing the mirror and it let out a long honk and stayed locked. I had to bust out the key to get back into the...
  3. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I've googled a little but haven't really seen an answer. Are there any common issues with the leather lining the door panel of an SX separating from the door panel? This happened on my Mustang and was apparently a common problem for the model as the glue and the lining of it's leather/vinyl trim...

    I have a 2010. For the longest time, my front drivers door lock wouldn't work via button or keyfob. Now, all of a sudden, all four doors are acting that way. When you hit the "lock" button on either door, you hear clicking sounds from the doors like they're trying. The lock itself will even...

  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    The stupid things that happen with this car, '11 EX-T, that have never been seen before, at least by me in the 60 years of car ownership. Headed to Atlantic City yesterday and about 75 miles from home on the Garden State Parkway running around 70/75 mph and the interior lights come on and we...
  9. DIY : Appearance And Body Modifications
    Couple of weeks ago i noticed that one of my front illuminated door sills was broken.. and at a same time wondered that why there was no such things in rear doors at all:confused: So i fixed the front one and straight after that started to think that how can i do this same thing to rear doors...
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    For the life of me I dont know why my driver door side speaker only gets a mid bass single meanwhile all other speakers receive the same I thought my speaker was blown or the tweeter and i changed speakers out with a good one and that didnt solve my problem. I rechecked the amp wiring and...

    My buddy saw another Optima with what look to be door sill protectors that extend out and down the side skirts. Anyone know who makes/sells these?
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Has anyone succeeded in programming a 2012 Optima w/HomeLink mirror and a Chamberlain B750 rolling-code garage door opener? I just bought this new garage door opener and am having a heck of a time trying to get it to work! Grrr. I seem to recall having a little difficulty years back with my...

    I'm deadening the SXL and wanted to know if anyone has a writeup or link on how to get into the inner door skin. wondering what all needs to be done to deaden the door skin. I have searched and didn't find anything (I'm sure I may have missed it)
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey guys, I am having a problem with my driver's door. Sometimes when I use the keyfob OR press the button on the handle, all the doors lock but the driver's door. When this happens I have to lock the car manually with the key. I'm assuming it's the lock actuator but was wondering if anyone...
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So, it appears a shopping cart... or someone's door? met with my drivers side door at some point today. I noticed this tonight while in my garage. I know it's just one picture and it's hard to say but I am not going to be able to take it to my body shop guy until Friday. Looking at this, can...
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have a '12 SX and as you can see from the photo below the material on the armrest has completely worn through from where my elbow rests. As far as I can tell, the armrest can't be replaced individually - it seems I'd need to buy the entire door panel. Does anyone have suggestions for a way...

    Hey everyone I have an issue with my doors locking properly. So before I had this issue. Double press the lock button, I get honk feedback, side mirrors autofold in, interior lights turn off, blinkers flash. Now it's not doing any of the above except for lock. Interior lights eventually turn...

    My driver side front door lock rocker "rattles", which is noticed during volumes of 15-30ish. Naturally, higher volume fixes the issue by masking it :) lower volume and driving does not cause this item to vibrate annoyingly though. Anyone else have the exact issue and able to fix it? If it's...
  19. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, so this is really annoying and I am not sure what to do. I have a 2014 Optima that just crossed 68K miles. For some reason, the switch used to select if the lights will always be on, off or only on when the doors are open has broken ( never actually use the switch), and now my...
