Asked by Jan 30, 2012 at 09:52 PM about the 2007 Kia Optima EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have been advised that after 5 years all cars should have those items replaced.My Optima has around 45K on it and this kind of preventative repair is very expensive.Does anybody out there in cyberworld do this to their car,and secondly which would be more important to do first.Hoses or belt?
I want top add that a 2006.5 is in reality a 2007
