  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I have the 2016 Optima SXL with the fancy headlight that swivel and all. Recently the passenger side bulb went out so I naturally right it's just the bulb that's gone bad, since the DRL and indicators and all work perfectly fine, and bought new ones for replacement. Turns out they didn't work...

    Hi guys - Can ANYONE point me in the right direction of where to find the directions for how to replace the SXL stock HID bulb (driver's side)? Please guys, if you're going to hit me with snark, or the typical, you can find it in the threads stuff, b/c I have looked, and looked, and there is...
  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey everyone, I'm trying to replace some lug bolts that I accidentally sheared off, thought it would be a simple thing. Turns out, they didn't engineer this hub assembly too well for replacing any lugs very easily. Is there anyway to just pull the hub off without having to remove the entire...

  9. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi, I did something not super smart and had a paper sitting on the sliding cover to the wireless charging / USB / Cigarette Lighter bin on my 2016 SXL. When I opened and then closed the cover, the paper was gone - slipped behind the center console into the void. UNFORTUNATELY, the paper was my...

    I am giving away the original rear-view mirror from my 2018 Optima SXL Turbo. Just pay shipping from Miami. The mirror is in perfect condition and features auto-dimming. I no longer need it since I upgraded to a mirror with HomeLink and compass.

  12. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just curious about that, folks. Zero issues with this car with regular fuel (always use Shell or Chevron), thankfully, but just curious if there's any noticeable difference with premium, like it's the case with most turbos. I was surprised not to see any reference to premium fuel in the owner's...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi, I am new to these forums as me and my fiance recently purchased a 2015 Kia Optima SXL a little over 2 weeks ago. It had 120,000 miles, and we expected it to have some slight wear and tear, but we did get a good price for it in our opinion. But when we purchased it, we were told there were...

    Hey Guys, New member here and I'm wondering how I can start posting in the right subforum (engine)? I got a used 2016 Kia Optima SXL half a year ago but the transmission is really rough -- is this normal? It feels like the car is automatically braking when it downshifts. Thanks, Jack

  18. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just got my new 2016 Kia Optima SXL yesterday! I need a car cover for it though, and am having trouble deciding on one. Need to spend less than $200 on a cover. I was looking at the CoverCraft Reflectect. Then I noticed that it has the "mirror" pockets on the cover...a lot of different types...

    Hi all! I am new here, and am very grateful to have found this forum! I am about to purchase a 2016 Optima SXL from a Kia dealer in another state. It only has about 18,000 miles on it and from the pictures I have seen, it looks pristine. However, I noticed the other night that the faceplace...
