There was a serious engine recall on the Optima over several model years. Would Kia replace the engine free of charge if I were to purchase an Optima that is under the recall?

Recalls are done no matter who owns the car. I see a problem when you do have an issue and you get on a list that doesn't repair the vehicle for a long time. Most dealership would probably only schedule one car a time due to the complexity of the swap and time it would take. I personally would stay away from Kia vehicles.
