    My wife and I love our Optima Hybrid. In early April I took it in at 55,000 miles before the bumper to bumper 60K warranty expired. There was a clicking noise in the front. They diagnosed the problem as some front brake parts and a control arm. They ordered the parts and told me to come the...

    When I turn my AC on Auto or the highest fan setting when it's really hot out hear in Florida, it seems overly noisy. Almost like another unit in the engine area has kicked on to help. If I turn the fan down a few notches, the sound dims down. Whatever the sound is, it seems louder than the...

    Hello all. I've owned my '13 Hybrid LX for about a year and a half now. I've put about 40k on it since then. I've done all the repairs and maintenance myself so far. It's been a decent car. Thanks.

    Hi! My name is Jessica, live in sunny southern California. I've had my 2014 KIA Optima Hybrid EX for a little over 3 years now. I love the MPGS since I commute about 50+ miles per day! I've been having issues with car washers (unknowingly) leaving my vehicle on and draining my battery! I just...

    Just got my 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid this last weekend. 104K miles on it but was used for a 60-mile daily commute so mostly hi-way miles on her. Was concerned that they might have been Uber miles but the owner was a Marine living about 30 miles from Pendleton. Took her for a run up to Los...

    Hey fellow forum members, I recently picked up a Stinger GT2 and my hybrid is now being driven by the wife, still in a lowered state with wider tires. The 2017 hybrid has been the most fun I have had with any of the hybrid Optima KIA made. They did an excellent job with it although, I wanted...

    Im looking to install a radio in the trunk of my 2014 Optima Hybrid. The radio requires a 12v all the time hot wire and ground. Easy enough for me to wire directly to the 12v battery for this. However I need to find a 12v power source that is powered by the ignition being powered on. Any advice...

    Ever since getting the 2017 Hybrid, the car felt solid with pretty good handling. I've driven it somewhat hard with the OEM tires and it felt pretty good but I always felt the tires were the weak link and I wanted it to roll a bit less in corners. Back in December, I drove a Stinger GT and my...

    I just got a 16 Hybrid EX. I always join the forums to find out as much information I can get. That being said, is there anything I should know about the car? Or, is there a mod that is a must? Thanks in advance.
