Question about Kia Optima

1 Answer

Optima Citrus Motors Ontario CA.

I got one July 6, and on July 7 the dash problem lights came on, battery oil and ck engine.

2004 they had a recall on the fuel system.

Dealership in Carson also tried to tell me about the gas cap issue, the service manager apparently wasn't going to have a successful life unless he read the gas cap to me three times. I doubt he would have been that completely condescending to someone that wasn't female. He accused me of opening up the cap, even though he was told that the only persons that touched the car fluids were the dealership employees.

Even though they don't have a recall on the car, any recall action would probably have to be a class action suit so there would have to be a few people complaining.

Their headquarters are in Irvine CA.

The lemon law, I think means that you can have two of the same incident, documented, two other problems, and the car in the shop for 30 days - but I'm not certain how many of these events have to happen so you might want to look up the website for lemon law.

It will now be July 10th with NO information from the dealership, and I am without a NEW car.

If you find a successful remedy, please feel free to send me an email.

    Did you ever figure out what it was? My 08 optima is having the same problem but no one can tell me what is wrong with the car. When the lights come one the power steering and accerleration go out. I can still brake and my radio works. The air conditioner still flows air through the car though the air itself is not being cooled.

I can't speak for the engine light issue, but look into stepper motors for your gauges for the oil pressure issue. I just purchased a used '04 Trailblazer EXT and the tachometer stopped working 1 week after driving it off the lot. I did some looking and apparently the Delphi motors that GM used do not hold up.

Where is the OIL FILTER for the 2004 Kia Optima?


For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire. I hope this helps.
