2016 Kia Optima: Seat Upholstery and Padding Coming Away

by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on May 13, 2016

2016 Kia Optima

The front seat bottom edges in our 2016 Kia Optima should be tucked under and secured in some way, but they have instead popped free, making it possible to feel the padding underneath. This is the case for both the driver and passenger seats. It's not overtly noticeable, but you can definitely see that it doesn't look right. I've tried to feel around to see if there's some way to easily re-secure the bottom edge, but no dice.

Needless to say, this is unimpressive — especially after only 5,000 miles. Then again, it's also the only quality qualm in the cabin to date. Something to address when I eventually take the car in for its first service.
