    I'm really blown away with my "new-to-me" SX. I've had the car for about 2 weeks now, and other than some front seat comfort issues, I'm loving the heck out of this thing. For us it's a second car, and we needed to quickly replace our 05 Lexus ES. I wasn't in the mood to give up a lot of the...

    Took the car in for a "power flush" of the transmission. Now let me say that after owning Hondas for 14 years and was told NOT to power flush a transmission and only do a drain and fill. Now I had them explain the concept due to the fact I have never heard of it and after calling both Hyundai...

    Traded my 2013 EX for a new Ford Escape. My wife wanted something that sat a little higher (better visabilty) and we decided on the escape. We really liked the Optima except for the road noise. Learned a lot from this forum. Thanks

    Greetings, From Rockford, IL. Picked up a 2013 Titanium SX on New Year's Eve to replace an old work car and found this site shortly after. Immediately after bringing the car home, my check engine light alerted me to a problem. I found the P2562 code and after searching found this site. I have...

    K5 floor mats? Not the ones that say "Optima" on them. Want floor mats that say "K5." Do they exist? Cannot find them anywhere! If it matters, I have a 2013 SX.

    Grabbed my Titanium SXL 3 days before new years so I could claim it on my taxes seeing i did not pay any all year because I have a 1099-MISC sales job and it saved me 5K in taxes!!! Great start to my investment and I am loving driving this thing, just with it had a sport type mode that turned...
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I took my car in last week to get an oil change, and while i was at it i had them fix my dome light (not sure what it's called, but that little beam of light that is supposed to always stay on pooped out on me a while ago). After waiting for 2 hours, they told me they needed to order the...

    I really love my Optima, and I don't think we can complain too much about it, but we all have our little personal quirks and preferences with our vehichles. So what is THE ONE thing that drives you crazy, or annoys you, or you just plain HATE about your car? I'm not trying to pick the car...

    Just traded my 1995 Lexus SC 400 in April for my new Kia Optima. Lov'n the car.
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Looks like the Optima seats have changed (by the brochures I have for both years) Some complaints about stiff seats in the 2011... Any words of wisdom specifically on the leather seats?
