  1. Engine and Technical Discussion
    So I have a 2011 SX. 174000 miles on it. Had to replace the shocks/struts and since there are no good normal options I went with the Street Plus Coilovers. (Not happy with them but I'll figure what the **** I'm gonna do with that soon). But now my car is showing signs that I need to replace the...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have a 2013 Optima LX with about 40k miles on it. I'm taking it to the dealership tomorrow for the recall about parts of the engine not receiving enough oil. How can I be sure that they don't test it and just say it's okay when it's not? Has anyone here had to have their engine replaced? Mine...

  8. New Member Introductions
    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...

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
