Hello, just picked up a 2020 Optima. Really excited for this car it replaced our Midsize SUV we had. So far it has been awesome (got it 3 days ago). Never having owned a KIA before i am a bit nervous, so if anyone has any reassurances or tips for me i would gladly take them all ?
My name is Mike and i live in Utah USA

Welcome and don't be nervous as with the engine recalls on the earlier models and if the engine goes they'll replace it free of charge.
Just do maintenance as per the owner's manual and you'll be fine.

Bought my first Kia in January. 2020 Optima Special Edition no turbo but I love it. This car has been great. Getting it wrapped next week and wheels powder coated. Coil overs soon after that. I’m that excited about my Optima that I’m dumping more money into making it more “my own” and more mods will follow. You’ll love it. ...to be honest I’d rather have the optima than the stinger also... idk. That’s just me. I test drove three different trims of the stinger. A forte also. For me, the Optima was just right. Great prices on them too for how much we get in them. Enjoy it. I know I am. This forum is also great by the way. I’m new here too and have been eager to read posts daily. Learning a lot about each generation optima and finding that 99/100 really like their cars on here. Plus, we get awesome warranties. So, what’s to sweat. Drive safe. Cheers!

Hey Mike, welcome to the Optima Forums.

Congrats on getting your 2020 Optima.

They really are great cars, and Kia has come a tremendous way over the years.

We have an entire store based around the Kia Optima, so let us know if there is anything we can help you find.

Thanks! Im pretty religious about maintenance. This thing has soooo many electrical components that's part of me being nervous
