  2. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Recently I decided to lower my hybrid after driving a Stinger GT and my buddy's car with coilovers. I wasn't looking for a much of a drop but wanted to get rid of some of the lean while cornering. While the lowering springs helped, another issue that was minor became larger. The Kumho TA31...
  3. The Service Center
    I just purchased a used 2016 Optima EX (6k miles). Love it so far, except for the AM radio reception. Sometimes it's great and sometimes it's terrible – even in the exact same conditions. I know AM reception is impacted by many factors, but if those factors remain constant, the reception should...

  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My daily driver since April 2012. Have had zero issues mechanically other than a bad battery cell in the first 6 months which Kia promptly replaced. Still a pleasure to drive everyday and still (I ain't kidding) gets a compliment from someone every few weeks. The car was a very good...

  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I picked up a 2015 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 with Ultimate package today and traded in my 2013 Kia Optima SXL. While I wasn't a fan of the new Genesis' EPA fuel economy estimates, I did fall in love with the build quality, technology features, and overall comfort with it. Plus, I got it for a STEAL...

  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey guys. This morning it rained harder than I can remember for this area. There was water over a foot deep crossing 395 at 6AM in rush hour traffic, but even at 40 mph my Optima didn't hydroplane once. It never lost contact with the road. I was impressed. I can tell you that the Nexens did...
