  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    We just bought a 2015 Optima SXL and it only came with one key. I've found new ones on EBAY for under $80 but I know I'll have to go to the dealer to get the key cut and programed. Is it still okay to go the way or just better to bite the bullet and go through the dealer?
  2. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Have any of you purchased wheels / tires from The prices seem too good to be true. I looked around and found mixed reviews.
  3. The Service Center
    I'm hoping someone can give me some advice about my new baby! I washed her about a week ago and noticed hard water spots all over it. I've even taken it to the car wash just to be sure it wasn't anything from my water (I've never had promised lens with this before) and they were still there...
  4. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    After 2-3 weeks of watching the '16 Optima's and doing a little homework, I pulled the trigger last night and came home with a used 16' Optima LX with 14,780 miles on it and paid 14,000 (not including tax, title and paperwork fee) after negotiations. I hope my deal was decent, I feel it was...

    I purchased a new 2009 Optima EX which now has 70,000 miles. The car is garaged when not in use and mileage is about 50-50 between city and highway miles.

  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My wife sent me a text this morning after I had left. The text contained a picture of our garage floor where my car was parked and in it's place now was a bunch of anti freeze which must of leaked out that night. I went down to my parking garage at lunch, popped the hood and what do you now...

    So, I realized after I purchased my 2014 Optima EX that map updates appear to cost $150. Is there any way to update the nav software for free or is paying this crazy amount the only option? I would of asked the dealer to include the new version before making the purchase on Saturday. I wonder...

    Hello, My name is Matt, I just purchased a 2015 Kia Optima, traded in a Santa Fe for it. So far I really like it.

    Been on the forum since May. I was in the research stage then and lurking around here. Traded in my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude with a HEMI for a 2014 Ebony Black SX Turbo. Holy cow, that thing scoots down the road! Had to drive to Spokane to pick it up (about 180 miles away) and on...

    Hello all, I just helped my mother purchase a 12 Hybrid with the Tech package to replace her 98 SHO. She loved the look of the Optima and wanted a turbo. Problem was finding a loaded low mile Optima Turbo with the works is not cheap. She test drove a base Optima as she thought she could be...
