  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Have anyone pulled the trigger on a new 2016? I'm thinking of upgrading from a 2013 EX to the 2016. I love the new Moss Gray color and what they have done with the interior. They are no rebates currently offered for the Optima and a few dealers I emailed have limited color/option choices...

    So, I'm a Hyundai guy. Have a Veloster Turbo, but might need to be trading it in for something more family friendly soon (we'll see....). I've always liked the look of the Optima, so I'm kinda vetting this car right now, and so far I really like it. Anyways, Hyundai has their "circle discount"...
  5. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I do not have a lot of knowledge on car parts for non production models. Will the cost of the tail lights go down or skyrocket when the 2014's come out? I am thinking hard about these and the past few months of ebay stalking for cheaper priced (3-350) has not been successful. I am...

  7. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hi all, I just replaced the "Luxury" 18" rims on my '13SX and would like to sell them. How much do you think they're worth? They have about 1000 miles on them, no blemishes, no TMPS, and no tires, though I do have all of the original lug nuts, if that would matter to anyone. I just need an...
  8. Canada
    I am in the process of trying to find the best price for a 2013 Optima SX in the Ottawa area. Kia 417 offered an all in price (before HST) of $32,800. That is with no trade. I am just not sure how good that price is. I don't know their factory to dealer rebates or any other hidden incentives...

  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I think I finally convinced my wife to get rid of her bus (2010 Chevy Traverse). She (I am) is seriously considering a EX with premium non turbo but wanted to know what on average everyone paid for there after all the haggling. There is one on the lot where I bought mine for 23.9 and USAA...
  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Well im looking to purchase my 1st Kia ever. A 2012 optima ex, no packages. I've done my research but I figured I would ask if im making good deal at 22500, before the $1000 rebate, down payment, and trade in
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello everyone, new member here. I have been doing research on the Optimas and so far I like what I am hearing. I had a pricing question. I set up an appointment with a private owner for a 2011 Optima LX. It does have leather seating with heated driver and passenger seats. It doesn't have a...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    A local Kia dealer here advertises "Kia employee plan pricing" for our company, another dealer "invoice or below". I'm trying to find how much "Kia employee pricing" is as a percentage based of the invoice, or dealer cost. Anyone working for Kia willing to share? Thanks Peter

    Is up on Truecar, the price of the EX/SX Premium package is up to $2950 reflecting the addition of the Infinity/UVO system.
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've been looking for a loaded EX Turbo for several months, and they've been nearly impossible to find. A few weeks ago, I learned that there was a ship docking this week with EX Turbos headed for the southeast (I'm in the Charlotte area). I remember the number 25-30, but I'm not sure if that...

    Though these aren't solid numbers yet. Expect them to be very close to the actual numbers once Kia has finalized pricing. Base model will be around 19k while the range topping hybrid to be around 26k with all the bells and whistles.
  18. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have never priced out an Optima before and suspect there could be a difference in price with a newer model version. Has there been any speculation in price as of yet? Would I be wrong to expect a price tag of $25000 to $30000?
