    ... and now there are two in my garage. My wife's 2017 Sorrento EX and my 2017 Optima SXL. We love them. Got a sweet deal on the Optima in February;, it was the last 2017 on the lot and they were dealing. Plus it was the very end of the month, which helped greatly. Beautiful car.

    I dont know if it's normal, but my battery hybrid system never exceeds this point. I currently only used the Optima in city. In the image you can see the highest point i ever reach in battery charge... :\ Is this normal?

    I was in the market for a Subaru late last year. However after running into multiple dead ends and only finding high mileage Outbacks locally, I decided I needed to broaden my search. Ended up test driving a 2008 Optima EX and was pleasantly surprised by it, but wasn't too happy with the price...

    Hey just posting some pics of our Optima. We got it on Saturday, and I decided to go and do a photoshoot with it. lol Sounds weird, but its kind of a tradition now. Nothing has been done, just straight up stock with tinted windows. Anyways, let me know what you think! Thanks.

    Hi All, I finally turned 1000 miles on my Optima so I thought I'd check the oil and tire pressure. The dealer had written down 33psi for all 4 tires on my delivery check list. I checked them today and they were all at 53psi:shocked: What the ****? No wonder I felt every single wrinkle in the...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So it's taken me 5 or so months to like and hate Kia. Customer service is terrible IMO with them. It all started when I blew my spark plug on my motor and it needed repairs. I called Kia and they helped me with getting a tow truck through roadside assistance. All seemed well but when it...

    If anyone told me 5 years ago i'd want to purchase a KIA I would have laughed at them. Anyway, i just bought a used 2013 Kia Optima SX w/ technology package and premium touring package in titanium silver. She had 9450 miles on her when i drove it off the lot. Ive been lurking around here for...

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I know everyone got their own taste and appeal but sometimes you see mods on people's optima and its just straight up ugly! My #1 is having tinted tail lights. I first fell in love with the optima is cause of their rear ass. The tailights just makes it look amazing. Having tinted tail lights...
  16. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I did a search on these forums and couldn't find anyone with this same problem. Sometime when I start my car the radio will say "Loading Sirius" and won't ever actually load it. It is different from the "Acquiring signal" message. I get that driving under bridges and is to be expected. If I...
