    Been a while since we did the rounds of Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and after sifting through this afternoon we found three clever new auto accessories that are at the very least worth taking a closer look at. The first of the pack is the most practical, but as you work down the list they get a...

    <p class="p1">When it comes to mid-tier tools—respectable quality offerings that won't the bank like pro-grade stuff will—GearWrench is consistently a go-to brand in the pack, and we just came across one of their more out-of-the-ordinary kits at a significant discount. More commonly known for...

    Hi everyone! I noticed that the top lines of the rear back window are not heating at all. Are your Optimas acting the same? 2017 Optima PHEV plug-in Thanks for your replies!!

    Complexe kia on sherbrooke east are a bunch of unprofessional idiots. I wouldn't even trust them for a oil change.

    No, it's not the HERO7, but the HERO6, but it's selling for a deal and comes with a massive accessory kit, making it ideal for catching those driving shenanigans in crisp 4K. Read More Here!

    Gotta love it when new ideas and innovations come to an otherwise tried-and-true product. The Kimblade Wiper Blade is trying to bring an end to crappy, streaking, chattering wipers once and for all, and from what we can see they just might be onto something...

  8. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    2017 SX turbo - I swear every time I stop at a stop sign or stoplight, I hear what sounds like 1 or 2 taps in the rear of the car! Originally I thought it was actually someone tapping on the car! I hear it about 5 seconds after I stop the car at a stoplight. Has anyone else experienced...
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I'm trying to understand the likely cost of maintenance of Optima. I found 2014 Optima SX turbo (pretty loaded) with 43k miles. The car was sold in 2015 so its still covered by Kia's warranty. I called Kia to ask about transferrability of the warranty and it turns out that the 10yrs/100k...

    I need an adapter to hook up the factory head unit to an aftermarket backup camera. Only thing I can find is this product, an Axxess AX-HYKIACAM2. I can't link anything cause of post limits! Though it states it is only compatible with a 2016/2017 Optima. The instruction manual for setup seems...

    Is this a variable timing solenoid? It looks like nothing on auto parts store. Can’t find a match but sorrento looks same but not an optima. The part is the melted one with what looks like grey vacuum lines on it.
