    2019 Kia Optima LX 2.4 engine I know 5w-20 but what brand and full synthetic or semi synthetic. I have used Motorcraft 5w-20 semi synthetic oil on my last two new cars with good luck. I just got a reply from our local kia service department, and they say they use Mobile 1 semi synthetic, but...

    Hi guys I’m looking to get rims and tires for my car and there’s just so many options that I get lost. My car currently is stock with 205/65/16 and I want to get a better looking rim and quality tires at a budget. I went to tire rack and it shows that I can go up to 20s but I don’t want that...

    Hey Everyone, I'm Johnny and I'm from San Diego, California. I own a 2015 Optima EX with a little over 37,000 miles. It's black with grey interior and believe the dealer said it was the luxury edition I could be wrong the wait worded it. I bought it back in November of 2017 and so far it has...

    Hey all, Just picked up my 2015 SXL and love it, love it, love it. There is one thing that popped up and I wanted to ask you about: I was driving in a high traffic area (LA, peak hour..:rolleyes:) for maybe an hour or so, used Eco mode and Sport mode for a bit, all in all maybe 20-30% of the...

    Lurked on here for a while, pry a good six/eight months and I finally decided to join mostly because I need some help and opinions on some things. I’m Ethan from Illinois by the way.

    Hello, everyone! My name is Daymon and I'm the new owner of a 2013 Kia Optima SXL. I currently live on Fort Bragg, NC but was born and raised in a small town named Delton in Michigan. It's about 30 minutes out of Kalamazoo, MI. Because of that and the hunting influence my dad had on me growing...

    I am a new owner currently living in New Brunswick, Canada. I got my Optima at the end of last year and is my favourite car to drive. It is an Optima 2013 EX Luxury, got it for pretty cheap used from a desperate dealer who was looking to move the car off of the lot ASAP to make room for a bunch...
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I had a first service today and the cost was $148 for total 5w-30 oil, oil filter, filter gasket, tires rotation and 1 hour work. Even if the first one was free looks like a little to much to me for the oil change. What do you usually pay for oil change at dealership?

    Just got a used Optima EX Hybrid (traded in a 2008 Dodge Charger RT) and wow I am loving it so far. I'm downloading the map update as we (figuratively) speak and may make a few small cosmetic mods in the future.

    Hi everyone, I recently bought my first KIA (2018 Optima EX) and I absolutely love it. I am 49 and still a big kid with my toys. I own a small Computer service in the western North Carolina area and needed a professional-ish sedan, but I love sports cars. My Optima fits that bill perfectly. I...

    Just picked up a gently used 2014 SX Turbo with Navigation. Been really loving it so far, but had a few questions/comments. The wife and kids are complaining about the low front passenger seat, so I will probably purchase the kit to raise it up. The emblem on the back of the car is a weird...
