The passenger seat is very uncomfortable, it sits way to low. And the head rest on both seats lean to far forward for my husband. Since I am short it does not bother me. I would not have bought this car if I realized how uncomfortable the passenger seat was.

It's back down by the firewall. I need help please.
While driving down the freeway my car desides it wants to drop the RPMs to zero and stall out. It will also do it at a stop light or sighn. It isnt a constant thing it happens once or twice a day then it drives fine. And it normally only does it when the check engine li check t is on. I havent ran the new codes yet but the one that keeps poppi g up is P0446. Any help or advice would be very much appropriated. Thanks for your time.
I believe it's coming from the driver side front under the car. It only does it once and I can feel it in the floorboard. It will be louder if I'm on an uphill stopped and then accelerate. I had to get the control arm in the front replaced and I put 4 new tires on it about 2 weeks ago. Please advise what this may be as I feel like my axel is going to fall out while I'm driving. (I'm over exaggerating...I hope!)
re: 2013 Kia Optima LX. Radio will not turn on. Trunk will not open using either the key fob or the release inside the car. I turned the car on. I could then open the trunk with the inside release button, but the radio still does not work. Trunk does not open when the car is not running. This just started happening today.
How can I fix it?
This is the first time something like this has ever happened.
