    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...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi, I am new to these forums as me and my fiance recently purchased a 2015 Kia Optima SXL a little over 2 weeks ago. It had 120,000 miles, and we expected it to have some slight wear and tear, but we did get a good price for it in our opinion. But when we purchased it, we were told there were...

    I just got my 2015 optima a month ago and it was completely stock. I started with cheaper upgrades first. I put 15% window tint all the way around besides windshield, replaced the emblems with 3.0 k logos from k5 optima store as well as the k5 air valve stem caps. I just finished the last thing...
  5. The Service Center
    Hi All, Ive had my optima since 2012 and never had any issues. They kept sending the recall mail about engine software update and finally decided to do it. The next day my car does not start. When I press the start button it keeps clicking but does not start. All electronics work. Was reading...

    Hello Optima Forums, Someone I know owns a 2014 Optima and they've recently run into an issue that I'm seeking some help with. They went through a car wash and their antenna broke off. Can't attach pictures just yet as my account needs a few more posts. I've seen a few places online selling...

Anyways i hope i am welcome here our cars are very similar and i think if i am not wrong the motors...

    Hi folks, my rear view mirror only dims intermittently, has anyone encountered this issue? It works for a while then "un-dims" at night.

    MY19 Optima GT cruise control not maintaining speed Hi, We picked up our new Optima GT a couple of weeks ago and have noticed that the cruise control isn't maintaining the set speed very well. On moderate hill climbs it's dropping down by as much as 15kph and then on the downhill run its...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I received my tune and installed it right away on my 2013 SXL! The install process was a breeze because David Chung gave me a step by step walkthrough. We were messaging each other in real time and he took great care of me. Within 10-15 minutes I was all done. You need to upgrade your spark...

    As the temperatures drop, I went to use my heated steering wheel for the first time this year on my 2012 Optima EX and it isn't working. The indication light that is supposed to light up on the button does not light up when pressed and the wheel is not heating up. I already checked the fuse...
  13. The Dealership
    Went to this dealership which is 68 miles from my house to look at 3 Optima's that were listed on the Kia.com website and their own website as certified pre owned. After buying the CPO car and taking it home I called them up after a couple of days and asked them to send me CPO paperwork for my...

    I have a 2018 Optima, and a Samsung Galaxy S9. Android Auto is working great, except that I am not getting notifications of new text messages. I am getting notified of Facebook Messenger messages. I'm using the default Samsung Messaging app if that matters. Any advice?
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I'm trying to understand the likely cost of maintenance of Optima. I found 2014 Optima SX turbo (pretty loaded) with 43k miles. The car was sold in 2015 so its still covered by Kia's warranty. I called Kia to ask about transferrability of the warranty and it turns out that the 10yrs/100k...
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    2015 EX, noticed this morning that my interior lights were not turning on when any of the doors open, overhead switch is in the middle position, I believe that is 'Auto'. Lights work if I manually engage them... Any thoughts on this problem? Not sure if this is just a coincidence but I just had...
  18. Engine and Technical Discussion
    greetings I've my 2013 SX Optima and working on different mods that actually help increase HP/Torque as well as help the engine. I'm looking for BOV but the way Kia set up the Optima's I don't think it's a game changer to add it. Still, knowing that the forum is full of experts, I'd like to...
