Optima 4G Forum section?

Isn't the 2016+ a new generation of Optima? Why isn't there a forum for these cars? Thaxx.

its the forum heading that is all wrong. 4G (2011+) Optima, it should read G3 (2011-2015), and another heading should be G4 (2016+)

We went through that with the forum headings for Rio a few months ago but it has been corrected.

This still is not fixed. MY 2016+ is fourth gen. Period. Opinions about changes don't matter, it's how KIA has assigned it and that's that. Are there mods here?
