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 charged $250 for them to "tighten some loose bolts by the axle" The noise is happening again and I am taking it into the dealership next week. But I am really looking to see if maybe someone here has had a similar problem or has a solution to this. Also if anyone knows of any other issues I should know with the kia optima hybrid...

My 2011 with 70k

Issues:
  • Air conditioner compressor ($1000 - Replacement and recharge)
  • Turbo wastegate adjustment ($300 - Since I don't have the KIA tool)

The brake light comes on intermittently, not sure why, but it stays off after cycling the power.

Other than that, just been changing oil, brakes, and tires. Overall, I would say that it wasn't as reliable as my lady's 2004 TSX, but it doesn't have me running into the woods.
