    Hi I have a 2016 optima. The other day I was driving down the road at 65mph and I lost engine power and breaks. I don't remember if I lost power steering or not I was trying not to crash the car with my kid in it. Once I was able to coast to a stop I put a code reader on it and had 18 codes that...

    I am an old broad trying to keep my old vehicles running well. I have put a lot of money in repairs for my KIA Optima this past year. Most of them have been done because the car kept stalling and having difficulty starting. Mechanic kept saying it was different things and we needed to change...

    I am very lost and probably late to this party... Just found out about the whole Class Action Lawsuit thing today. Yea I realize its over and too late. My question is...if you never knew about the KSDS upgrade thing or got it installed, in the event of engine failure your ORIGINAL Certified...

    Hi all, I own a 2005 Kia Optima EX V6 2.7 auto, and yesterday ran into a few issues which seem to be transmission related (potentially sensor issues?) Car starts and idles fine, however problems arise when driving. Symptoms include: Shuddering/jerking from the transmission when shifting into...

    Hey all, I've got a 2012 Optima SX with just over 110k miles on it. Late 2017 or 2018 I had the engine block replaced as part of the recall and have had very little major repairs needed. I'm the second owner, I bought it ~2015. I do regular maintenance with synthetic oil every 5k miles or so...

    I bought a used 2016 Kia Optima last year and everything has been working great except for one thing. The steering wheel audio controls and handsfree mode don't work. None of the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel function at all. I know the feature is installed because when I get a...

    I have a leak in the rear brake line, leaks right below the drivers side front door. I can not find the brake line anywhere online. I did a 2005 chevy suburban lines a few years back, was able to find them pre bent and everything and it was a cinch to replace. I have a link for the closest thing...

    Hello, I have been dealing with a progressive issue over the last couple of years after filling the fuel tank in my 2012 Kia Optima. When it first started, I would fill the tank all the way and it would have difficulty starting but I could get it to start after trying to turn over a few times...

    Hello, Has anyone else had their radio slowly go out in their Optima? Mine has been out for probably 1 1/2 years now. When it started going out it would turn on when I started the car but it might turn off and turn back on by the time I got to my destination. Then, it would be on when I started...

    I’ve got a 2008 Kia Optima 2.4L and I can find the torque spec and tightening sequence for the camshaft bearing cap bolts. Any help? Thanks!
  13. 4G (2011+) Optima
    Heyooo, Was just wondering, do the dimensions for 2011-2015 optimas have the same as 2016 badges? I was looking at scooping up some of the led badges and waterproofing it myself and was wondering if they would still fit on a 2016?

    Hi everyone, I recently purchased my Kia and I'm having an issue with the wires that run to the brake/signal light socket. Long story short, signal was flashing rapidly which alerted me to the problem originally. I saw that the rear signal bulb was burned out, i replaced it. When i went to...

    So a couple months ago I noticed a pop sound come from the front driver side area whenever I pressed the gas or brake pedal usually when I am starting off a stop or coming to a stop. So I finally gave up on trying to find where the noise is coming from and took it to a Kia dealership. I got...

    When I turn on my newly purchased used 16 optima ex and the fan blower is on there is a loud fan like flapping noise, at first we thought it was coming from the vents but it is coming from the Panoramic roof right above the open and close button. When I opened. The sunroof, doors, windows the...

    Hey there. Ive never signed up on any forum before, and thought I’d give this a go. I’ve recently purchased two Kias. My daily is the 2020 Optima Special Edition, and my wife has a Sportage LX... she never wants any of the extras! We recently went from a high car payment on one car alone and she...
