    Hi Everyone, I drive a 2015 Optima SXL and before that owned 3 different Subarus. My most recent was a 2005 Forester XT, with a 5-speed manual trans. I bought it stock with 34k miles on it in 2012 and quickly began the downhill spiral into modding. I did all of the work myself and when I sold...

    Hi all, I have a 2014 Optima Hybrid, bought brand new about a year ago and have about 13,000 kms on it. I don't drive much ;) Generally I am happy with the car but I haven't found the hybrid to be very beneficial due to our cold winter and my short commute to work results in fuel mileage that...

    First post, first time 2014 Kia Optima EX owner! Previous was a 2011 Kia Optima LX AWD, and loved it - except she drank a bit too much gas and wanted a more fuel efficient car! My reason for joining the forum are two-fold - one to keep track of any and all things related to this beautiful car...

    Attention NOVA dudes and surrounding area members, would anyone like to have a meet within the next two weeks, and have a meet at a chipotle I say around 3:00 then maybe grab a quick bite, then cruise through 66, and to a frozen yogurt shop? :D

    Well, I was heading to do some errands on my way to work today around noon and saw a 2013 SWP SXL in my rearview on I-66 going through Gainesville. We kept up w/ each other all the way till my exit in Fairfax, but he did just about everything (and more) to his car that I was thinking about...

    Hello everyone! Finally decided to pull the trigger and picked up a used 2013 Optima SX Limited, Corsica Blue. Liked the look of them for quite a while now and seriously started debating it and researching it over the last few months. Traded in my 07 Acura TL. Totally loved (and still do) the...

    Saw a black sx (I think) last night with black rims and lowered with tint. I was turning into the cleaner off of courthouse road in Fredericksburg. Today when I went up to the Washington Navy yard in DC I saw a white sx with black rims and a chrome lip parked at the hospital. Nice to see other...

    What's up folks! I see a number of Optima's on my commute and am wondering how many of us are on this forum and maybe we can do a meet up someplace. I see a few hybrids, along with the others around. If we have enough interested parties, we could plan a meet up somewhere convenient. Let's see...

    Hi all, Been lurking the forums as a guest for a while. Picked up the new Optima SX in black with the premium package last Friday. Previously drove a '04 Hyundai Sonata. Definitely liking the Kia right now. Nice to meet you all and hope to gain some better knowledge on taking care of the...

    Hello everyone, I got my black 2013 Kia Optima EX with everything except NAV on 8/11/2012. So far it has been an interesting journey. I had the car only 2 weeks when a lady in a Sonata hit me from behind at a stop light. She he me hard enough to set off her airbags and, I think, total her car...

    What's up all. I'm a new 2012 SX owner in Northern Virginia. Previously owned a lot of cars geared towards high performance. Pretty happy with this car so far, had it for about a week. Wish there was an ECU load available though, that's depressing! Anyways, I've already ordered a **** ton...
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have 2012 Kia Optima SX, and have acquired all the OEM Mobis Parts from Korea in order to install DRL's on my car. Unfortunately, taking the bumper off the car myself is a little more than I trust my mechanical skills to. Anyone in the Northern Virginia area want to install these for me at a...
  17. The Dealership
    Hello - I am proud to say we recently purchased the 2012 Optima Hybrid from O'Regans KIA Dartmouth (Nova Scotia, Canada). We did look at other vehicles, but ended up coming back to these guys for a second time. We purchased a 2008 KIA Spectra only two years ago from the same people. No...

    New Hybrid owner since April. Already drove it around three provinces and ready for its third oil-change next month likely. We still have the KIA Spectra as a second vehicle. Love this Optima and its mileage. Currently the AVG is sitting at 5.8 L/100KM with a half tank down. Phil - Halifax...

    I know there are quite a few of us on this board so I figured I would start this up so we can get to know the local enthusiasts and possibly set up some meets, photoshoots and what not. I know the winter months are upon us and sitting around a parking lot is getting to be out of the question...

    2012 Turbo EX w/ Premium Touring Package, Titanium Silver/Grey Interior. I did test drive a SX, liked it but with my Chronic Back issues (wasted youth jumping out of perfectly good aircraft and fast-roping way too much!) chose the 'softer' EX ride instead. However, I was hooked on the Turbo...
