2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo: Straighten Up

December 12, 2011


Our Kia Optima briefly warns its driver (at start up) if its front wheels are pointed askew and in what direction. Is this really necessary? Won't it become obvious the moment the car begins to move? The only other time I've seen this was in a Land Rover (and Porsche Cayenne?) as an off-road assist screen.
