Hello,

First post here. I am looking at the 2013 Optima SX and have a couple questions:

1) is this car built in Georgia USA?

2) is the car easy to work on to replace parts, get diagnostics, etc.

TIA,
EB

If you live in the states ..it is built in Georgia. If you live in Canada, then it comes out of South Korea. Replacement parts and diagnosis are average like most cars.

Parts are easily available (dealers, here through cobra259, rockauto.com, and information is here. Some boilerplate info ... (cut and paste info)

You really don't need to "buy" a manual...Just go to "kiatechinfo.com",
register, and all the info you need is right there.
You need to be running
Microsoft Windows (XP,Vista,7) and
Microsoft IE (Internet Explorer 8 or higher).
You also need to download and install a free "plug-in or app" called Adobe SVG
(Scaled Vector Graphics). There is a link to this software on their site.
and a valid email address to send the password to..
This is the only known good way to get onto this site..
There is a moderate learning curve as things aren't always where you would think they should be...but a little looking gets everything you could possibly need.

We are here also to help and want to answer any questions you have.
