    Hello, I'm days away from purchasing a used 2012 KOH that was purchased 10/2012 with a user that has averaged 51k a year if you average it out. The carfax shows the previous owner was in the dealership close to every 30 days for oil changes and other maintenance. Sometimes after less then 5k...

    Hi Everyone, Well, got my oil changed last week and realized I need new tires bad. I have a 2011 SX, non-pizza wheels. I've never bought tires so I was hoping for a little guidance from the forum on best places to purchase them or even brands etc. Any help you guys can provide would be great.

    Okay so I don't know too much about rims and fitment, I checked on the known combos to work but didn't see this combo so I'm not sure if these will work. The fronts are 20x9 et +38 and the rears are 20x10 et +45. The center bore is 74.1mm. Would this set up be okay?

    I've been contemplating getting some custom painted Lexani R-Five rims and wheels from At any rate, my question is that my wife is against me buying wheels AND tires from online. She wants me to just get the rims. But she wants me to get the tires from a local shop. She is worried...

    2014 Optima EX GDI final price $27052 (all weather mats thrown into deal) Snow White Pearl w/ gray leather. It has the technology package & premium package. I love the white w/ the black roof & the heated/cooled seats. Went to look at a slx 2013 and it was trashed and this was a way better deal IMO.

    New to this forum as a member, but I used this forum in research before buying my 2012 EX. I came from a 2004 TSX, and after checking out the normal Optima competition it was a simple decision for value per dollar to get the Optima. I have driven it 6,000+ miles since August, around 21 mpg in...

  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I recently bought a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 4x4 with the 3.6L V6. As expected, I've only driven the Optima a few times in the last few weeks while enjoying the new ride. Unfortunately, when I took the Optima for a drive the other day I realized how much better the Jeep is in almost all...

    I am done advertising for Fairfax Kia, who fouled up replacing my center console latch, causing me to visit 3 times. It was just a friggin latch. I found some chrome license plate frames after researching e-bay for hours plus I drove all over town yesterday and found either *******-trucker...

    Hi - We are looking to buy a 2011 Optima base model from a fleet sale near here. I had a mechanic check out the car on a lift today and he found a small oil leak from the area of the pan, so it *could* be a gasket... Since it was just an inspection and he was doing it for free I didn't ask...
