2007 Kia Optima Front End Drag

I bought a 2007 Kia Optima a little over 24 hours ago. It's a great car for the price. I got the EX 2.7 V6. The only thing I've noticed...and it's really not that big of a deal...is that when I let up on the gas it seems the front end of the car wants to dip down. Has anyone else noticed this? And if so...do you have any idea why it has that reaction?

    I haven't noticed that with my Kia Optima, although I have the four cylinder version.

    Try tapping the accelerator pedal once quickly, see if it disappears.

    Hi there,
    also experienced problems with Optima, same year of production, the model like the one in the pic http://www.cartrucktrader.com/Ad/For-Sale.cfm/501804378/2007-Kia-Optima/Chamberl- ain-SD/ I bought it a couple of months ago and it was OK until I noticed both front lights went dim, as if the humidity entered under the shields. How do I get rid of that?
    I'd appreciate your help.

    Check the voltage across the battery terminals with the car idling and report back. I have a hard time believing that both headlights could fog up at the same time.
