    The Service Center
    Hello there, everyone! I'm basically new to here as well as a new car owner in general. I had a question for you all because I just got off the phone with a KIA Dealer for my 30,000 mile inspection and they want to charge $450. Background: I purchased my 2016 EX Optima Hybrid in February, this...
  3. I think I found a good Kia dealer for service.

    The Dealership
    I'm still a newbe to this forum but I wanted to tell you about my first expierence with a Kia dealership service dept. in Orlando Fl. I just bought a used 2017 Kia Optima LX with just over 40,000 miles (Yea, it was a hertz rental car) I had the car looked at by my friend (who is a mechanic) at...

  5. Induction Service v. Throttle Body cleaning; Brake Flush

    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    I have a 2015 Optima Turbo w/ 20k miles. Normal driving. Dealer wants me to have “induction service.” TSB #058 recommends against. But he’s also referring to it as a throttle body cleaning# TSB #010 seems to allow for this. Is he confusing the two services. I have always used top tier fuel an I...

  7. Factory Service Manual

    The Service Center
    I have a 2011 Optima 2.4L and need the factory service manual. Is this possible to get without paying the ridiculous fee that Kia wants you to pay to access thier site.
  8. Distance to Service display showing "Not Use"

    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    So, over the weekend, while I changed brake pads, I also rotated the tires and changed the oil. When I reset the meters for both, instead of showing a countdown, it instead showed me "Not Use" in both fields. Why would it say this, and is there a way to fix it to show the countdown?
  9. The first Kia Optima service price

    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    I had a first service today and the cost was $148 for total 5w-30 oil, oil filter, filter gasket, tires rotation and 1 hour work. Even if the first one was free looks like a little to much to me for the oil change. What do you usually pay for oil change at dealership?
  10. Turbo GDI induction service

    The Service Center
    Is it worth $199.99 at the dealer? Do they just pour Techron in the tank and call it a day? Or they take the cover off and physically clean the valves?
  11. Recommended Service

    The Service Center
    I went to go get my oil changed..... And for $35 and includes a multipoint inspection... It is a good deal. What I don't think is a good value is Kia's Recommended Service Minimum $405 Value $644 Preferred $888 What actually needs to be done to keep the warranty active??

  13. Factory service manual for 16+? Exploded suspension view?

    4TH Generation Optima (2016- )
    I have the FSM for my beloved Nissan. The most useful instance was when I received my Tein SS coilovers, I was able to print the page showing the exploded view of the suspension and take it to the dealer to buy every nut, bolt and washer to fully build the coils prior to installing, without...
  14. Service bulletin for panoramic roof?

    4TH Generation Optima (2016- )
    Just called my local dealer to schedule an appointment for an oil change and to look at a few minor issues under warranty. The guy mentioned there is an open service bulletin for the panoramic sunroof, but I haven't been able to find anything about it online. Searching some TSB websites with...

    The Service Center
    Where's the best place to obtain a 2013 Optima EX Service Manual? Any links would be helpful. (Free would be perfect) If not, lowest cost obviously. :D Thanks!

  18. Engine Misfire After 45k Mile Service

    The Service Center
    Just did a DIY 45k mile service on my 2015 Optima Turbo which included new plugs, an oil and filter change, and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank and that is it. Now my check engine light is on (Cyl 1/3 misfire) and it runs a bit rough at idle (intermittent drop in RPM). While...

    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    Does Kia offer a service where if the car is stolen it can be located via GPS?
  20. Public Service Announcement - Tire Pressure

    4TH Generation Optima (2016- )
    Cooler weather is beginning to move in, and your tire pressures will drop with the temperatures. Your TPMS is probably set for something like 27 psi before it alerts you, so you could be running around with your tires down 4 or 5 psi and not know it. I'm anal about tire pressure, so I check...
