    Hello other Optima lovers! I've been casually stalking this forum since I had my first Optima back in 14, unfortunately my 2015 SWP LX was taken from me in a bad accident; however, I now have a 2011 EB SX Turbo which I adore. I've started modding her a bit, nothing too big, just the 3.0 K...

    I'm in Phoenix, AZ and I own two Optimas - 2012 SX and a 2013 EX. Except for the disappointing MPG on the highway, I'm a real fan of the Optima. Right now I'm just trying to figure out the right way to do a mirror tap for my radar detector.

    My friends call me the unofficial KIA spokesperson. :rolleyes: They can't understand how I could have a S550 parked in the garage and drive a KIA almost daily. I guess they never will. I own a 2010 Forte and a 2013 Optima...looking to add a new 2016.

    Hey all, Just found this forum doing a Google search, and read thread on GDI intake valve deposits. I will add to it when my account has those privileges. I will also expand on more of this and I see as in all forums, plenty of misinformation on GDI engines today and the issues, causes, and...

    Intro: Jordan Hites Ohio 1993 Honda Civic EX Love the new Optima, but too poor to own one. Now that that's out of the way, on I75 today, I saw a purple Optima with front tires looking to be about 275 wide (maybe lowered as well). Does anybody somebody in the western Ohio region (maybe) that has...

    Greetings, From Rockford, IL. Picked up a 2013 Titanium SX on New Year's Eve to replace an old work car and found this site shortly after.

    I just joined after perusing these forums and finding a LOT of valuable information. I bought my LX used in April, a 2013 off-lease LX with 37,500 miles, so the previous owner really racked up the miles quickly. I'm not doing too badly in that department myself, with 10,000 additional miles...

    My name is Joe, I'm from Ventura, CA, I'm active duty Navy and I've had my Optima for about 6 months. The suspension and handling seem really soft especially at freeway speeds. It's hard to keep the car straight, it's like it wants to float all over the lane. I also don't like how bouncy it...
