I've been snooping around the forum for a few months getting some Cadenza owner info. I had initially had my heart set on a pre owned E350, but after checking out my colleagues new Sorento SX V6, I took a look at Cadenzas (which I completely forgot about since I rarely see any), and fell in love.
My intention was to wait out a pre owned 2015 SXL (blue w/grey interior), but I fell into a awesome deal. I was visiting a friend out of town this weekend and stopped by a Kia dealer behind the mall I was at with the goal of checking out the metallic bronze color which I also kind of like. They didn't have one, so I asked about pre-owneds. The sale lady told me they had a 2014 SXL, blue with a grey interior at the dealer across town. I was like.....O..M...G!!!!
2014 Kia Cadenza LIMITED Asheville NC 11632795
They brought it over me to check it out. I was immaculate, certified, and only 19k miles for 27K on sale for 25K. Its a late build 2014 because it has passenger ventilated seats. Before I checked to carfax another salesman told me it was leased from this dealership and serviced there. I was turned in early because the owner got a K900.
After some negotiations we agreed on 23,700. I usually don't make rash decisions, but I don't think I can pass this up. I like the little changes to the 2015's like the around view camera and the extra chrome in the interior, but that's not enough more me to let this go. I read about the passenger seat issue, but that wont be problem, because I always get my mother to make me bottom cushions for my seats.
This was all yesterday, I been ruminating over this all day today. I told them I'd call Monday morning with a decision. She even gave me her personal number to call her early to get it off the lot. What do y'all think?
