Is Cadenza 2015 reliable?

I plan to buy a new 2015 Cadenza as my second car. For the Premium model, I got a quota about $31601.0 from local dealers. It is not the best one compared with some shared prices by others in autopriceshare. However, Since it is lower than invoice price, I think it is fair. My last car is 2002 accord and it is really reliable. For the 2015 Cadenza, I am not familiar with it. People in this forum must know Cadenza well. In your opinion, is 2015 Cadenza Premium reliable? Are there any common problems with this model? Thanks, friends

I just bought a 2014 Premium which was still on the dealer lot for $27000. The sticker was $36100. Have you checked if there are any left in your area? No differences between 2014 and 2015 to speak of.

The overall data says Cadenza would be classified as "very reliable"; but the counter point is that there are very few units in operation in the US and Canada, many more in Korea and worldwide.

Also, there's several posts of less than optimal situations owners have encountered documented on this board.

Unfortunately, there's no such thing as a perfect car today, even the best encounter component issues as most cars are built using a long supply chain of suppliers. Still you'll get a 10yr 100k powertrain warranty and that's hard to beat.

Thumbs up

See link:

2014-manufacturer-vehicle-ranking

CarMD ranked vehicles for 2014 and Kia Optima was #8 of the top 100 in reliability. As mentioned before I don't think there's enough units in operation for Cadenza to show up in these metrics. But Optima comes both from Korea and West Point, Georgia and uses similar suppliers and build technology as used with Cadenza.

This is probably as best a objective indicator of quality as we can get to date and looks very positive.
