detail116 Best car I've ever owned September 06, 2015 LX Plus
Overall Score
From domestics, to Japanese imports, I've owned everything from a Mini Cooper to a GMC Sierra and everything in between. I traded in my fully loaded 2011 Honda Civic EX-L for this Optima. The trade value of the Civic exceeded the price of the used Optima and I walked out of the dealership with a cheque in my pocket. To say these cars are a great value is an understatement. To have a low end (LX+) Optima with more options and features than a fully loaded Civic even had was tremendous. Standard heated seats, panoramic roof, Bluetooth, air, fog lights and more all standard? Not to mention the 2.4L GDI engine (now at 100,000km on mine) including 2 trips across Canada, has been absolutely flawless in it's operation. The only maintenance I have had to spend on this car in 2 years was replacing the original tires, front brake pads and rotors and routine oil changes. Absolutely reliable car that I never have to worry about and is a dream to drive. Fantastic road manners, excellent seating position and acres of room inside for both front and rear passengers alike. Without a doubt, the Optima is one of the best values for a midsize sedan on the market today. Unfortunately it is so under rated and shadowed by the Hyundai Sonata that it has not had it's chance to shine in the spotlight. Once you give the Optima a look, you will be sold on it. Best car I have ever owned and would happily purchase another one in a heartbeat.

Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Safety TC
On certain vehicles equipped with 2.0L and 2.4L engines, the engine may contain residual metallic debris from factory machining operations. If debris is present, it could potentially restrict oil flow to the main bearings and rod bearings and could lead to premature wear. If the vehicle continues to be driven with worn bearings, the bearings could fail, which could cause an engine stall while the vehicle is in motion, resulting in loss of motive power which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Worn bearings could also result in the illumination of the oil pressure lamp in the instrument cluster. Correction: Dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the engine sub-assembly.

On certain gasoline and hybrid engine vehicles, the circuits within the airbag control unit may become damaged. This could cause the airbags and seat belt pretensioners to not deploy in certain collisions where deployment is warranted, which could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Correction: Dealers will install a wire harness kit between the ACU connector and vehicle harness connector as necessary. Note: This recall does not affect the 2013 model year Optima Hybrid.

On certain vehicles, when repairs were completed under recall campaign 2017-199 (Kia RC109), the high pressure fuel pipe may not have been properly installed on the fuel pump outlet. A fuel leak could occur if the pipe was damaged, misaligned or improperly torqued during the recall repair. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, could create the risk of a fire causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the connections of the high pressure fuel pipe to the fuel pump outlet for leaking fuel. If leaking fuel is detected, the fuel pipe will be replaced with a new one.

Issue: Kia Canada is conducting a Product Improvement Campaign that provides an update to the engine control module to detect potential problems before an engine fails. An engine failure may cause a sudden loss of power with an inability to restart. Safety Risk: A sudden loss of engine power could increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail. Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to update the software for the engine control module. Note: Vehicles repaired under Service Campaign SC025 already have this software update.
