    Hey all. So at one point my lady and I both had an Optima, and now we have none. Traded my hybrid in today. One year old and 25.5K miles and I didn't enjoy any of them. Was glad to dump it.

    Can't wait for enough consistent nice warm weather around here to do a full top to bottom wash/detail at home, but the hand wash place near my house did quite the job I must say. Loved this color on my old '11 LX, and love it even more on this car... :shocked: Edit: I have NO idea why the...

    So I just bought a '13 Optima SXL, and I know it comes standard with Hill Assist... But yet I do not see a button for it.
