After being active on here for a while, I have finally purchased! :D

I am the official owner of a 2014 CPO Aurora Black with luxury package (passenger cooled seat included!). Vehicle was picked up with exactly 6000 miles for $25,800.

Drove it home 200 miles to Chicago from Indianapolis and it rides like a dream.

Three things that I'd appreciate feedback on:

- There is a device on the windshield behind the rear view mirror that I hadn't seen before. I'll upload pictures ...but do you guys have that on your cars?
- Windows are all tinted, but some of the tint is scratched. I'll be taking it in to get re tinted - especially since Chicago has strict tinting laws.
- During the paperwork with the F&I guy, he offered me an extended warranty that was called the "platinum" warranty. At first I thought this was a dealer gimmick, but after looking into it, it looks like it's a Kia offer. Protection Plans from Powertrain to Platinum | Kia CPO
It seems to me like new Kias have a 12 month 12K mile platinum coverage. The offer was for an additional 7 years and 100K miles. (I may have those numbers off).

Anyone that has purchased a CPO - did you add on any additional warranty? The more I think about it, the more I think it would be a wise investment.

Hope to see you guys out on the roads!

The device on the windshield is the sensor for the automatic wipers. On a recent trip I had a chance to test the function of the automatic wipers and they worked very well.

I purchased a 2014 CPO. I did opt for an extended warranty that gives me bumper to bumper coverage to 100K. I spent $1800 for this but I figured that with all the automation and the hourly rate for Technicians these days, it was a safe bet. I do keep my cars for a long time.

The date on the door is 4/14; however, the cpo warranty I received from the dealer has the date that the car was first sold as 9/6/14.

I agree with extending the warranty because I plan on keeping the car a long time.

I'm halfway through the owners manual and also plan on rebadging with the K logo badges.

That device also houses the auto defrost.
My Manual says Auto Defogging "If Equipped". Page 4-129 of my digital owners manual shows an annunciator if Auto Defogging is in operation. I don't believe my car has this annunciator. Do you have this annunciator, Yooshaw? it is not listed as a Tech Package item.

What color is your interior? Yours looks exactly like mine, I absolutely love it! Congrats!
It's the black napa leather interior. Love the black on black look.

I woke up this morning to a foggy Chicago...and condensation in the passenger side fog light.

I'll be contacting the dealer for them to check the seal on the lights.
