  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Annoying problem with key fob... If I walk near my car when I have unlocked the car and I have the key fob in my pocket, the car automatically locks all doors... if the car is unlocked and I don't have they key fob with me, the car stays unlocked... the problem usually happens if I am carrying 2...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I already have a thread about my vents peeling or whatever but I also have an issue where the driver side headlight has failed 3 times within the past 2 days. I took it to our mechanic and he said the bulb wasn’t blown but that something was loose so he tightened it, so I took it to get the oil...

    Sometimes my nav screen stays off when I start the car and other times it turns on. If it stays off, I just push any button (fm/am,sat,map...) and it turns on. Common issue?

  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, I am a new owner of a 2014 Optima SXL. I have done research but can not find out what the acceleration time is for my particular 2014 Optima SXL in any of the usual auto magazine websites. I have watched a guy on YouTube do an unofficial 0-60 run using regular gas, and he got a...
  7. Track Time
    Hey all. I just submitted a slip and info on my best 1/4 mile time yet on the site here: Fast Kia Optimas 1/4 Mile 0-60 Drag Racing - I think you all should start doing the same on there. It'd be cool to have a fleet of Optimas on there. It will take 24 hours they said to...
  8. Track Time
    Sorry for the crappy photo, but thats my time slip from yesterday at milan dragway. So its not what I expected but , there is a lot of variables that could have affected times. 1. It was my first time EVER at a drag So we can say inexperience may have been a factor. BTW I ran...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey guys I converted my Ex taillights to the LED tails and someoen told me my passenger bumper tail wasn't lighting up once. I noticed that sometimes (rarely) it doesn't or it'll come on and off... This is the side that wasn't spliced for anything and was just connected to factory harness... any...

  13. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Sorry to ask, I know there's been a lot of talk about it, but I don't seem to get any smarter reading the old topics. I bought a HID 35W kit for my fogligts, after I installed them they flickered. So I bought something like this 2 x Fehlwarnung Decord Canceller Kondensator Anti-Flackern für...
  14. Track Time
    I went to Capitol raceway close by me,it was 93 and very humid out. I tried a couple of different things,but my times where slow. My IAT's where at 152F. The best time I could get out of it was a [email protected] My mods are Fabworx 3" mid pipe,and Fabworx intake. All in all a good time at the...
  15. Track Time
    Where are the times 1/4 mile 0-60. More interested in 1/4. All I see are Dyno numbers and an insane amount of headache with tunes.what do they get you and why can I not find any data? I want to see what these tunes actually do in the real world to the performance of these cars.
  16. Engine and Technical Discussion

  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)

  18. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Since there is no racing section, I'll post it in here. What are you Turbo Optima owners seeing at the track with your cars? Anyone know who the fastest is around? Anyone knocking on 13.9 or 14.0 or cracking 100mph bone stock down to the paper filter? Post up!
  19. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    press release tells us that the 0-60 times for the inline 4 turbocharged engine to be around 6.0 sec. definitely another reason for anyone to get this car. it might not be the fastest in its class it still is pretty up there and definitely something to be happy about. i'm actually pretty excited...
