Roof trim issue
Hey all,

I recently bought a 2014 Kia Cadenza and the roof moldings on top are painted. The paint has cracked fairly heavily on both moldings. I have talked to Kia and they are saying the moldings probably wernt painted. Now, i have talked to some body shops and the moldings are showing needed paint time. This is on a premium cadenza with no sunroof. Vehicle has 45k miles on it. Can anyone tell me if your moldings are painted or not? I would appreciate it!

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by moldings. If you could provide a picture that may help someone. I have the sunroof on mine but a pic could still help.

He is talking about the rubber moldings in the drip rails. This is a known issue, I had the same issue and advised the dealer NOT to paint them when they were replaced. Its just a poor design, paint will never hold on the rubber molding.
