  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    2017 SX owner. Not a big issue, but I was just curious; When you select "lower" for heat, does it also choose defrost as well? I ONLY want the heat to be in "lower" but even with lower selected, I can still feel it coming out the defrost vents! This is a small issue, and I really don't...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Couple minor things I've noticed, anyone else notice these or other little annoyances? 1) My dash illumination has a habit of going to MAX by itself. I have no idea why. I always reset it to 15, but fairly regularly I'll find it blinding at night and realize it has gone to MAX again. 2) The...
  3. 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...
  4. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, have a 14 Optima EX with 58.5K miles. So far I have already flushed the coolant, just did a full front brake service (new pads and rotors), getting a set of 4 tires this weekend (was still on the factory tires), and will do Oil Change and Engine air filter change before 60K miles. I...

  6. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Looking through multiple sites and shops for rims for my 13 SX, and its so hard to just narrow it down to a set I actually want to buy. There's so many options/colors/sizes etc, its hard to just pick one set. =(
  7. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Not sure if I can post this question yet as I'm new. Hello, Has anyone had problems with their Kia push Button not starting the car? I have and it has stranded me on a few occasions. Most times if I wait 10-15 min. it seems to reset and I can then be on my way. I notice the brake pedal remains...
  8. The Service Center
    I put less @ 7500 miles a year on a car. I have free oil changes for as long as I own the car from the selling dealer. I have had the car for 6 months and it currently has 2000 miles on it. I will basically be doing one oil/filter change per year. Here is what I am doing. I am supplying the...
  9. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Just curious if anyone has gone with Alpine Type-S gear and how you are liking it. I have a soft spot for the brand from my old RX-7 that was loaded with Type-R gear. Here's what I picked up for my 2015 EX: KTP-445U Power Pack SPS-610C for the front, leaving stock rears in for now SWS12D4...
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My wife has a 2014 TDI wagon. What a mess this is becoming. Most dealers will not take them on trades, and the used value is dropping. Also, VW can't seem to figure out what they want to do to compensate owners. Last month it was a $2000 rebate toward a new VW. Hard to pull off when they wont...
  11. United States
    Hey All New to the forum and just got a 2014 optima EX. I am loving this car and this forum. Just wondered if there are any other peeps from San Diego? any local meet ups? any shop recommendations for minor mods? local spot to go take good photos with my new car? anything to help out the NEWB...
  12. The Service Center
    I have a 2013 SX bought brand new. It is just coming up on 2 years old and I have never had a brand new car lose coolant like this one. First time they filled the coolant reservoir from the L to F mark. That was about 10 months ago. Now the reservoir is once again on the "L" (low) mark...
  13. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Today I received my NGK ILKR8E6 spark plugs and will install them tomorrow. Has anyone else installed these plugs in their 2.0T? I read they are better performing than the stock Denso plugs due to having a .022 gap and cooler heat range. They are listed for the 2008 Mitsubishi EVO X 2.0T...
  14. Classified Forum
    The reason I ask If anyone is a sneakerhead is because I'm trying to sell my original Jordan Oreo 5's. I got them around last Christmas at the release at my local footlocker and paid around $230 dollars for them if I can remember correctly. I have only worn them maybe 4 or 5 times and was...
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Its been 2 and a half years with this completely unfixable car. It just was never fun to drive between the steering and the suspension just having too much sway and being too stiff at times. Now i have a rough idle and the steering is just too vague to be safe on highway overpass turns. I have...
  16. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So I just put a pair of fast start 55W P15D HID's in my reverse lights and holly **** is it a dream, lol. It was a little work, I was sure the stock wiring and the cars brain wouldn't be able to handle the power, especially since I tested the things before I put them in and at startup they are...
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I am aware of the proper forum, but few people post there. I have stated before that my Infinity Basslink 10" sub (200w RMS) sucked so I replaced it with a proper dual 10" box and a Kicker 600.1 monoblock amp. This sounded great, so I went ahead and bought another Kicker 200.4 amp (50W RMS X4)...
  18. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My Optima now has an Injen short intake and an Ark cat back exhaust, but it also has a child seat in the back and a drawtite trailer hitch. Its a bit of a split personality situation. I have to haul the family around and tow my mesh utility trailer when i want to take out the trash or bring my...
