    Just picked her up from the dealership this morning! Absolutely love this car. I have been wanting an Optima for so long, it still doesn't feel real. The drive back was about 50 minutes, so I tested out some of the extras like the adaptive cruise and lane departure warnings and blasting music...

    I just purchased a 2012. Always liked the look of the Optima. Wish I wouldn't of waited so long to get one now!

    Hi all! My name is Dave. I just purchased a low mileage 2012 Optima LX and could not be happier with the comfort, feel, and overall style that the updated Optima-line up features! I've been browsing these forums for a couple months now and was deciding between an Optima or a Sonata, but...

    Type B Badges in Red... I got these cause they were alittle different. I tried plasti-dip and I could never get the texture correct, and to be honest I didn't like the flat black. Adding a glossifier would have just added more texture problems so I decided to go with 3M Black Metallic Gloss...

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I was at my dealer today to have my 2013 LX's steering checked. The steering wheel wasn't centered, they adjusted toe-in and made me happy! In the waiting room I was checking out a 2013 Optima brochure and noticed that the exterior color choices did not include Dark Cherry Pearl Metallic. A...
