    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!

    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...

    Hey guys, I don't know much about Kia Optima other than they look like a nice sporty car. I was looking on craigslist to buy a used one a stumbled across a nice 2011 black one with 116k miles on it. The owner said the engine was rebuilt due to the recall. Would you advise me to stay away...

    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...

    So I brought my 2017 Optima GT LineS 2 years ago and all good. Now all of a sudden the DAB radio has stopped working. I can't get a signal anywhere, sometimes is does drop in but only very briefly. The AM radio works just fine and everything else is working just fine. I know it must be a radio...

    Hi all, I found out there was a law suite involving the engines on various cars including the 2019 Optima where the engine could catch fire or something. What happens to unsold cars? do they get them fixed before they get sold?
