  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My 2013 EX Hybrid drivers seat will not lock on the up & down. (It’s the automatic adjustment not the manual on the seats) When I drive I’m constantly bouncing on any bump in the road. Any suggestions on how to fix?

    Hello folks, thank you for taking the time to read my post and hopefully help me out. BTW I love this car. I need the part that goes between parts 21 and 22. The parts guy at the local dealer is less than helpful.

    I’m looking for a racing seat for my 2013 EX Luxury. I want something that is very comfortable and reclines, but still holds me in well and has good styling. My budget is around or below $500. Any suggestions?

    Is it difficult to replace the standard driver's side seat with a power seat? I found one at one of my local used parts providers, but didn't know if it required more than just unbolting the standard seat and hooking the new seat cable to the existing coupler.

    On my 2015 sx turbo the driver's seat won't go back as much as the passenger side. My 2013 went back a lot more than this one also. Any input as to why?

    My driver-side seat bottom warmer stopped working, thankfully it's still under warranty, I was just curious if this is a fast fix (2-3hours) or should I expect to leave my Optima all day at the dealer. I called them and posed the same question, they were very non-committal, wouldn't even give me...

    I don't think we have a dedicated subforum for this, but what's the view from your driver's seat like? What mods have you done to your driver position, and what do you sit behind when you drive? Here's Mine: Cockpit 3.0 From Left to Right: Mini Fire Extinguisher Change sorter/carrier...

    My seat recently stopped moving backwards once I turn the car (11 SX) off and I've confirmed that the setting is in fact set to "on". Anyone experience this and/or know of a fix? TIA

    I just bought a certified pre-owned 2018 Optima. It does not have any charging ports in the back seat. If I install some on the back side of the center console, will it void the factory warranty? Thanks!

    I have found a set for 200, nothing wrong with the the passenger, or the rear just needs a good scrubbing, but the driver has a tear, and they are the heated and cooled seats, how can I fix it? Is it sew-able, and if i take it to a shop how much will it be to fix it (estimates not of a exact...

    Hi fam! Today while making a sudden stop in morning traffic, my radio powered off. I was thinking it was maybe a safety feature, but I could not manually turn the radio back on. I got to work and powered off the car and turn the ignition on, but the radio still remained off. Lights on the...

    What do you guys use to maintain your leather seats? Mine is a little over a year old and has some lines in a few places already (no tears or holes). My car has been parked in the garage every night, so it hasn't had much sun exposure. Thanks.
