  1. The Service Center
    I have a 2011 Optima LX GDI. The drivers side tail light will not work, neither does the license plate light on the same side. The turn signal and brake light do work. We have changed all the bulbs, checked the fuses and mechanic checked the wiring. He concluded that it was the smart junction...

    So, last night my garage wall decided to be a punk and jumped my driver side mirror:( My side mirror sustained a fractured mirror. I am trying to keep her calm about the scary operation to repair her broken little face but she is still a nervous wreck!! Can anyone tell me if this is a major...

    Hello, It's been a while! Have searched a bunch of threads but still need a little help. The passenger side mirror is broken. The internals specifically. The exterior of the assembly and the glass are fine. The mirror came popped out while I was on the freeway doing 70 but the wires held in...

    Hey gang. 500 kms over warranty and the dealership won't help since I don't service with them...lovely. Anyhow, my passenger side mirror is sometimes not folding. I've come to the conclusion that the internal plastic gears are damaged. Finding this mirror is like a needle in a haystack. The...
  5. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Here is a part I have seen on some cars: Side Splitter Winglet My questions are these: Is this an effective mod? What effects will this have on the vehicle's aerodynamics/fuel efficiency? Where should these be mounted? Before or after the rear wheel? When used in tandem with other aero...

    For the life of me I dont know why my driver door side speaker only gets a mid bass single meanwhile all other speakers receive the same I thought my speaker was blown or the tweeter and i changed speakers out with a good one and that didnt solve my problem. I rechecked the amp wiring and...

    I have a 2018 Optima sx turbo. I was in a grocery store parking lot yesterday. When I returned to my car I found that someone had folded my driver side mirror in. Being a power mirror, I thought this was a bad thing to have happen. I didn’t seem to find all that much info on the web. The...

    Does anyone know where I can purchase black side mirror covers that are compatible with my 2016 Optima EX? I purchased these off eBay, but the clips on the back do not match up with my OEM mirror clips. The shape of the covers is exactly the same, but not the clips. I am aware of the carbon...

    Hey guys, my drivers side mirror won’t stop running, even with the car off. It sounds like it keeps trying to move the mirror. I got help from here with replacing the mirror and thought that would work, but it didn’t. I tried replacing the fuse to no avail. Anyone have any idea how to fix this...

    I’m here to figure out why my side mirror keeps running
  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    The drivers side blind spot detection light in the mirror keeps lighting up on my 2015 Optima SX Turbo even when no cars are present. Is there a sensor or something that could be dirty that's causing this?

    Hello all! Long time lurker here. Bought my Optima a year old and any time I had an issue or question this is where I came. Well I have an issue. Walked out to my Optima, which was sitting in my driveway, and found the drivers mirror hanging by the wires. Who knew mirrors just fell off. :$...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    In my new member introduction, I talked about my driver side mirror falling/breaking off. A couple of great members helped me along, with guiding me to find what I needed. I have come to the conclusion that for the same price as one OEM mirror, I could possibly buy a pair of power folding...
  14. Hybrids
    Hey fellow forum members, I recently picked up a Stinger GT2 and my hybrid is now being driven by the wife, still in a lowered state with wider tires. The 2017 hybrid has been the most fun I have had with any of the hybrid Optima KIA made. They did an excellent job with it although, I wanted...

    Only works occasionally. Why?
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    This is on my 2013 SXL. I am hoping that someone might have an extra mirror that they had to replace due to damage other than this gear that wouldn't mind selling me this tiny gear, or even the entire assembly if need be. Mine cracked on one side and then spun over the spines of the metal part...

    We've gotten a lot of heavy rain lately, and I have water leaking into the front passenger foot well from behind the glove box. I did an experiment by opening up the sunroof and pouring some water into the spot where water would ordinarily drain from on the front passenger side and confirmed...
