So my Cadenza is now 14 months old and has around 15,000 miles on it and I'm starting to notice a rough idle at start up to the point the whole car shakes for a couple of minutes. Does anyone else have this issue. I will be taking it to the dealer in a couple of weeks. I'm sure I'll get the same response from the service manager "Everything is OK".
I had a scare a few days ago. It sounded like it was just the starter that kept going off. Some cranking and that's about it, no turnover. It kept doing it too, about 5 or 6 seconds until I pressed the ignition again and it stopped. I already took my foot off the break as well. I gave it a rest for a few seconds and it started right up. Not sure what that was all about but I wanted to know if any of you have experienced that at all.

So I just dropped off my car at the dealer for the wheel replacement and told them to check the rough start issue I feel. They call me this morning and said YES we think something is wrong and want to keep the car to check it out better Monday. If anything is found I will report it here. I also started to see smoke out the back under hard acceleration.
Nice let us know, my car has been with the dealer for nearly a week now because they keep getting damaged wheels for the recall. The "overnight" always takes 2-3 days instead on the wheels. Apparently KIA can't figure out how to box a set of rims.

Second update. So I received a call from the dealer and they told me they'll need the car another week???? They are replacing the fuel rails, some of the injectors and the cam shafts. I'm not quite sure how to feel about this. At the very least they are covering the rental car and do all this work without a question. They MUST know something something about this motor.
