Optima LX

  • Automatic transmission

researching online, I found other kia owners with same issues who had dealership take care of it under warrenty. Others like myself however, are having hard time dealing with the dealership. reading the warranty manual this should be covered under the basic warranty 60,000miles/5years. I will have to call kia HQ to make complaint.

Optima LX 2.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission

I WENT TO THE VIA CAR DEALERSHIP ON OATS IN NETSUITE. THE GUY IN SERVICE department would not try to help me. Just brushed me off. My daughter has 2 Kias in La. And has not had any problems from her dealership. I am so dissatisfied with them, I will never get another Kia.
