  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hello my 2016 Kia Optima is acting funny, the RPMs are dropping to zero, and it makes it hard to accelerate after that. Two lights come on a red one that looks like a steering wheel, and the yellow traction light. Also not sure if it’s a related problem but I put on my blinker and my headlights...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello my fellow Kia Owners, Long story short I am having to replace my front end and some on the back end. I figured since I’m already doing it what are some swaps I can do that would look good on my Kia. I am replacing my radiator support, bumper cover front and back l, grille, bumper beams...

    I am at a lost for my Kia Optima Hybrid 2012. I was driving down the highway passing up a car and all of a sudden I lost power. The car would not accelerate creating a dangerous situation. Luckily I was able to exit into some road. I turned off the car and tried to start it again and I got the...

    The high beam and low beam driver side on my 2014 Optima EX are not working. It is unclear in any information I can find if there is a particular fuse which could be the problem. Can anyone clearly direct me which fuse I should be looking for? Are the low beam and high beam bulbs separate...

    Anyone seen the new Kia logo design? How do you guys like it? I had added the new logo vinyl sticker to both front and back badges and my steering wheel. Here’s how it looks on my 19 optima.
  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey lads and lases, I was curious if anyone has tired to program one of the 2020 Kia key fobs (the ones that look like detonator switches😂) to one of our cars, specially the 2011 optimas. I figured they all run off the same basic principles of how they function and the types of signals they send...

    Hi, I am a new owner of a Kia Optima from 2012 and I also have a problem with the reverse camera, more precisely, when I put the lever in reverse mode, the display does not change (as normal, given that it has the camera on the back ). Has anyone else encountered a similar problem to help me...

  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi, I have a 2013 EX T-GDI and the engine blew at 126,000 km about a year and a half ago. It was replaced under the recall at the time by Kia free of cost of course. The manager was rude and mentioned that he would not replace it again if it blows.. I read online that after the the engine...

  11. The Service Center
    My back passenger side window is not rolling up or down. For a little while the driver control switch would only roll it down, but the passenger would be able to roll it back up. Now neither is responding. Any ideas on where to start? Motor, I’m guessing? I believe I’m out of warranty for...

    Hello All, I never would have thought I would be in this position ever in my life. Like I prepare so much just to avoid minor things now this lol, it's crazy. My 2015 kia optima is around 70k , I have maxcare warranty from carmax till 100k and I did the recall upgrade so my engine is covered...

    Howdy all! First Kia...bought it for the standard safety features. I came here because I get ZERO indication that my FCW or AEB is active? I commute 40 miles a day in heavy traffic...assume I would get something...but nada... The Lane Assist (car in two lanes) and steering wheel icons show...

    Hello folks, thank you for taking the time to read my post and hopefully help me out. BTW I love this car. I need the part that goes between parts 21 and 22. The parts guy at the local dealer is less than helpful.

    For those waiting for the 2011 Kia Optima, what color will you choose? I think the car will look best in black.
