    Hello all, Matt here. Live in the Southwest Chicago suburbs and recently totaled my previous vehicle. Have rented a bunch of Kias as I travel quite a bit for work and I really like the look and feel of the car. Was an easy choice to replace my old car with this new one. I got the EX model, but I...

    Hello everyone, I just bought not running 2011 Optima hybrid in order to fix it and keep as my daily driver.

    Hey everyone! I'm brand new to the Kia family and so far I've been really impressed! The only question I have, is how do you turn off the AEB function? It's killing me in stop and go traffic and honestly just not a great fan of it. I barely get around someone and it brakes pretty hard. Is there...
