I just purchased a 2014 Cadenza with 26 miles on it. Got a great deal after trading in my 2013 Optima that had 72K miles on it. Had the Cadenza for 11 days and on Wednesday I went to a store, was in there for 5 minutes, and when I came out it wouldn't start. Dealership is now saying it's the BCM. I'm concerned I got a lemon. Service manager assures me he's never heard of this issue. I can't find anything anywhere online that points to any issues. Has anyone heard of anything??? I'm a little freaked out

Mine just had a dead battery at purchase; probably sat at the port and dealer too long without starting. No problems since.

I would let dealer fix and try it out. The warranty activity is very low on Cadenza and this model has been in production for some time in Korea. I don't think you will have issues but keep all documentation for peace of mind.
The ic's in any of the modules on any make car can get hit by a voltage surge and cause a problem.
Good news, I haven't heard of this problem with the cadenza. Better news yet It is covered by warranty.
You don't even need luck with the KIA warranty
Welcome to the forum
I've had mine be dead a few times. I've found it's the battery draining when I leave the headlights on auto and have it sit for a couple days. Now I just turn them off when I'm not using it.
