  1. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hey all. Late 2016, I got my engine (long block) replaced, which was ironically before the first recall was issued. Luckily I was still under warranty anyway. I just took my car in today due to the recall that was issued out recently. They checked everything and did an ECU update and gave me a...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    With Lane Keep Assist I keep getting the warning to keep my hands on the wheel, even if they are. For example, if I am going down a very straight road and dont need to move the wheel yet my hands are on it, I'll get the message. Any way to change the sensitivity of this message? Or delay the...

    I noticed that the back of my '16 Optima looks very similar to many other cars so I got a wild hair and decided to try to accessorize. The triple plated chrome pieces I purchased were not very expensive at all. So, in your honest opinion...do you like my added fixtures, or would you get rid of...
  4. The Service Center
    Alright guys I need some help! So last year I installed a new head unit into my car. Sorry not sure what head unit it is exactly since I bought it used off of a member here and he also forgot what the exact unit is. Anyways, when I first installed it into my car it kept making the fuse for the...
  5. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I'll be logging off for the last time today and just wanted to say it's been fun to see what everyone has done to their cars and how much like a community this is. Keep it up gents and ladies. I'm quitting forums as a whole. See ya guys on the streets. Do me a favor and pay it forward again...
  6. Engine and Technical Discussion
    So, on my way to work today, my normaly torquey SX decides it wants to rev really high, yet not want to go past 100km/hr. Again, no CEL light, but a quick scan tells me: "Turbocharger boost control position sensor circuit high" Limped the car to the dealer. First bad plugs, now this. Never...

    I'm wondering what my options are, to upgrade my audio system on my car. I don't want anything super crazy, I just miss having some bass, and the stock audio system is lacking. All the stuff I see, says I'll lose my hand-free calling option. Anyone here get the upgraded audio on their 2014...

  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey guys! So I got a call from my dealership to check out their new inventory that came in recently. I was around the area so I stopped by, got a comp car wash (I was lazy so why not LOL) and saw this used white 2011 SX-T with 33k miles. They're asking 23k for it, but I'm pretty sure some...

(Found this program online) 1. Wash vehicle 2. Clay vehicle 3. Wash vehicle 4. Coats of Zaino Z-2 with Zaino Z-6...
  12. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Recently bought a 2012 Optima EX 2.0T. Love it, but I can never leave anything stock..... I am very interested in performance upgrades, but do not want to void my warranty. So ECU tune is out, right? CIA? Cat Back? BOV? Etc..... Any personal knowledge of how the dealership saw these...
  13. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hi, I am new to the forums ('13 SXL). I am trying to find out if I can shut down the engine but allow electrical components to keep on working. This is a huge annoyance! I cut off a call the other day, using BlueTooth, that was rather important. Is there a workaround for this? I apologize in...
  14. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I see a few Optima(s) around the Houston/Katy area in Texas and most have different badges, some I have never even seen before. But I am perfectly happy with my Kia badges, and would rather change other stuff. I'm not weird, right?
  15. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    It seems I have light colored residue all over my door panel and anything I touch. It makes the car look filthy but in reality it isn't. I think it may be skin cells but I'm unsure. Anyone else have this issue? Dave

    Just cleaned her up today.
  17. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I play music from a USB thumb drive. It seems like 30% of the time I restart my car, UVO will not continue where I last left and will restart playing music at the beginning of the library. And every time I restart my car, I have to press the shuffle button again to turn it back on. Is there a...
  18. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Forgive my ignorance, but I from the amount of people I have heard this from, including trained service techs, I have to ask... Can a manual transmission be sealed, and is it on this car? Last time I checked, transmission fluid is actually called ATF, or Automatic Transmission Fluid. So what...
  19. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi all... I have a brand new 2013 Optima LX with around 300 miles on it, and for the last couple days, my digital clock won't keep the correct time. It only seems to happen when I haven't been in my car for several hours. One thing I did do was install all new LED lighting in the interior and...
