  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just curious about that, folks. Zero issues with this car with regular fuel (always use Shell or Chevron), thankfully, but just curious if there's any noticeable difference with premium, like it's the case with most turbos. I was surprised not to see any reference to premium fuel in the owner's...

    Hi, I have a 2016 Kia Optima LX+ (2.4L) and recently filled a couple of tanks of premium 91 fuel from different stations and was blown away with the results. I always thought that premium fuels were a waste of money, however now I'm starting to question this. With Regular 87 I get: (from...

    Does anyone know if there is a way to program the car doors to unlock when approaching without having to push the button on the door?

The current optima has always caught my eye from the beginning. I decided to get an economy car add stopped by the Kia dealer...
