Having problems with your 2003 Kia Optima ?
I cant't believe how many people are having the same proplem I have. My 2004 Kia Optima driver side door will not open with key or interior controls. Why hasn't Kia recalled these cars to have this problem fixed. I agree this could be a dangerous situation. Is it going to take someone getting hurt to get it fixed.
WOW..i can't believe it. I had the same problem and cost me $400 between parts and labor. this should have been recalled..
Sorry to Hear. This problem goes back to a 2001 Optima binding intermittantly over the years. I bought a new lock mechanism and installed it my self. Took me 2.5 hrs. It is like all metal rods HUB, located near key way cylinder inside door. I had to hack saw off one of the old rods just to get old HUB off. Fortunately, the new HUB came with the exact rod.
