    I bought my optima in 2017, it’s an SX with just about every option that was available. Got it with 55k on it and it sits at 110k as of today. I’ve got the common misfire on Cylinder 2 and I’m between either cleaning or replacing that injector. Have NGK 1422’s I’m picking up tomorrow... I’ve...
  2. The Service Center
    My wife has about 600 miles on her new 2019 Kia Optima. She started to get out of her car at the store and the car alarm went off. She tried to start the car and it would not start. A lady came by and told her to press lock then unlock on the key fob. That worked. The alarm stopped, and she...

    We've found another solid deal, but time is super limited on this one! The Vantrue N2 Pro Dash Cam is packed with features including 1080P recording quality, front and cabin-facing cameras, infared nightvision, motion-activated parking mode, and more. Regularly priced at $199.99, it's marked...

    It almost sounds like a computer speaker. No surround effect. is that normal? I don't have the premium package so stuck with the 6-speaker system

    So I just bought a 2015 SX trubo a week ago and I loving it, I had no idea how nice Kias could be. I am looking at a K&N 69 Series Typhoon, the K&N web site does not list it as compatible but K5Optima store does. Has anyone with a 2015 installed it?
  7. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    https://imgur.com/a/MjmRDJM Here is a screen shot of the oem parts of an Optima front bumper. Items #9-12 deal with the air ducts, my question is can I get away with only buying #11 and keep the remaining structure of the current setup, or would I need to buy all 4 parts? Any help would be...

  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I'll post here.... I got me a new DD to keep the miles off of the SS. (EAT IT HAIM! :P :lol: ) As dead as things seem on here sometimes, the Soul forums are on life support. I have to admit, the car is fun to drive, for different, yet a little of the same reasons the SS is fun to drive...

    Hi gang, I just picked up a 2014 SX and am really enjoying it so far. Coming from a VW Jetta, so quite an upgrade. I live in northern VA (Purcellville). I'll be looking at installing a new head unit and backup camera, but I will post that in the regular forums once I have access to post I...
  13. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I can't tell you how many friends, relatives and acquaintances have been surprised (or even shocked) when they've looked closely at my Optima's and realized how well-equipped and well-appointed they are. Granted, both my Optima's have been SX-L's, and therefore fully-loaded, but people just...

  16. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    The news I have is a good news/bad news one. I had purchased a 2014 Optima SX Turbo from a Denver metro Kia dealership back in April of 2014, but after rolling in quite a bit of negative equity the payments were starting to kill me. I called back to the deal last week and spoke to a Matthew...
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Long story short I was allegedly speeding going 95 in a 75. Yes I'm a idiot. Speeding is no excuse. I was putting people lives in danger. I got pulled over. Expected a ticket. Nope. Cop pulls me out of the car and arrests me. Confused, I ask why. He says I was drag racing. Haha ok so now I'm...

    We just bought it after looking at an Infiniti Q50, Acura TXL, Honda Accord, and a Toyota Avalon. First, honestly, we had to get past buying Kia over an Infiniti. We were so shocked at the quality, reliability, sporty performance, and up-scale interior with almost every feature known to man.:cool:
