  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I plan on taking a 1,000 mile trip in the near future. Just wondered what I could expect for fuel mileage with our 2019 Kia Optima LX with 2.4 engine? I should average 70 mph because the road is near empty of traffic, and 70 mph will be a good speed to enjoy the scenery. The manual on the Kia...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi, everyone. I've just bought my 2019 Kia Optima Ex with the 1.6L turbo engine. It's rated 27/37mpg. So far, with about 300 miles on the odometer, half of which is highway, I'm averaging 30mpg. Driving with the sunroof open is probably making things worse. I hadn't seen any recent posts about...

    Hey everyone, my name is Dan and I'm the owner of a 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0. I recently traded in my 2011 Kia Optima SX for my a 2015 Sonata and I'm starting to feel like I made a mistake. I should start out by saying that when I first saw the new 2011 optimas, I fell in love...
  4. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, just was curious if anyone else has experienced this. I drive a 2014 Optima EX with the 2.4L engine and do a mixture of highway and city driving. My car has 78K miles on it and only maintenance I have done to it are oil changes, front brakes, 4 new tires, coolant, basically have...
  5. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I bought my 2013 SX GDI Turbo a little over a year ago with 16k miles on it. At that time I was averaging around 26-27 mpg city, 30-32 highway. A couple of months ago my mileage dropped quite a bit to where I can't even hit 23 mpg now. I tried cleaning the throttle body cleaner with crc...
  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    With my 2015 SX-L the warning light would come on when the display said there was about 30 miles or so predicted to be left and then that estimation would go away and not show any numbers anymore. If I went 30 or so miles though and then fill up I could put in about the full capacity minus about...
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I was thinking about replacing my 2015 Optima Lx with another one after the 5 years/60k miles bumper to bumper warranty runs out. I only drive it about 4K miles per year. It looks like a good move, assuming the trade-in is about $10K, which is about 50% of the original cost. On the...

  9. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I guess I'm most interested in what others are getting with the 2.0-liter turbo, since that's what I've got, but those with other engines may feel free to join in ... just be sure and tell us which engine you have. At about 2,000 miles on my car, I'm now getting about 21.5mpg IN TOWN, with...
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My wife and I bought 2 new EX's in 2013. The only difference was that hers had the Nav and Electronic packages (sunroof, rear camera, etc). At 68k miles I gave mine to my daughter. I took my wife's with 24k miles. I drive the exact same 92miles 5 days per week. My EX got 34 mpg every tank, every...

  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    After owning my 2015 EX for 10 months finally took a road trip this weekend. Drove round trip from Portland to Seattle, averaged 34 MPG. I'm pretty happy it gets this kind of mileage. What is your best MPG? Yes, I know it's sad I have not driven the car more given the fact I have only 2450...
  13. Hybrids
    I'm very disappointed with the fuel mileage of my '14 and really thinking about trading it in for a non hybrid. My most recent fillup was 10.23 l/100km or 23 mpg. I do not drive it hard. The only thing I can think is that I have lots of very short drives to/from work. I buy regular unleaded...
  14. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    This has probably been asked, but could not find it in a search. I have a 2014 EX, 19k miles, running original Kumho solus tires. They are just about bald. Typical? I drive like a grandma, mostly city miles. Thanks!
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Does anybody know how your current mileage is updated on the Kia owners website (kia.com)? My current mileage is about 3,000 more than what it's showing. My car is serviced at a Kia dealership. I dont' see any way to update it through the website. Am I overlooking something or is this...

    Hey all! Been a while since I've been on here. Glad to see it's still going. I've got a 2012 KOH. I just rolled over 82Kmi. Yep, 82,000. I feel it's still going strong. People still oggle it all the time. I recently went on a trip and I had to wipe nose and fingerprints off the glass after I...

    I am interested in other KOH owners who live in Vancouver and what gas mileage you are receiving .I have owned mine since July and in the city averaging about 8.5 l per 100 klms .Thoughts or comments ?
  19. Hybrids
    I drive almost exclusively city driving and I , at the best of times I only average about 30 MPG ( US) 35 (IMP) >from my readings on this forum it seems everyone is getting way better mileage than I am . What am I doing wrong.I would like to add Vancouver is hilly not San Fran hilly but more...
  20. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Finally took a very long trip. I thought I read somewhere that KIA was sued because of misleading mileage numbers? I don't see why as I was able to hit those numbers and better. Everything was not in ECO mode unless specified. On a trip from PA to NY 69 miles of mixed driving mostly highway I...
