Hey guys,
I was wondering who has the Cadenza with the most miles, and if you had any problems yet what so ever.

I have about 5500 miles on mine, and only problem is a bubble on the tire... :(

Gene problem with that is that my hood and trunk is plasgi dipped. So I told them I had road noise from my driver door they said its the dip bc its less aerodynamic. So I peeled it off it still makes noise. Then told them that my rear deck makes noise. They said my car has coilovers and 20 inch rims that will cause it I said ok screw yall. So I dont care I am about to get my car wrapped in a week so lets see what that does.

try another dealerships service dept. before you do the wrap, see if they can help.
Some service dept.s don't think we should as much as change to led bulbs inside

Many Problems for me :(

I also have a bubble on my tire as well, I'm getting it fixed for free. I called Kia Consumer Affairs. They are fixing it for free since I had so many problems with my car already. This may be a manufacturer defect, if there is no sign of damage then they should fix this issue for free.

3000 Miles

Wrong So Far:

- Passenger Metallic Rattle in side mirror
- Dent in rear trunk behind placement of Cadenza Badge Wording, replace trunk lid back panel
- Sunroof Switch Replacement
- Driver Side Fog Light Replacement (Condensation)
- Driver Side Mirror Loud Motor sound when unfolding (currently at dealer)
- Air Pocket in Tire side wall (currently at dealer)
- Rear parking assist failure (currently at dealer)

I have 4300 miles on my car and have had it since October. Only done a few 300 mile round trip highway drives but hope to air it out a bit if it ever stops snowing here in Michigan. Taking it in for my first oil change/checkup this weekend. Haven't seen any of the issues mentioned by others but I might not have driven it enough as my 1999 Acura RL is my snow buggy.

My fear is with the K900, the value of our Cadenza's will be nothing so I will have to keep this thing until the wheels fall off. I think somebody mentioned that you see no marketing for the car anymore. I was in LA last weekend and I saw several K900 billboards and I saw what I believe was the Kia headquarters.

I have 15000 but just bought it. The car fax showed no problems. the lady turned it in---it was a lease car. She needed a SUV. It is a sweet driving and great riding car. I had a 2007 Avalon before and liked it but the dash cracked all over the place at about 40,ooo miles and toyota would not do anything.

It could be your coilovers not being torqued down correctly when installed. The top of the rear shocks are located behind the seats near the rear deck. The last time I installed coilovers myself, this exact problem happened to me. So worth it to check out. Pull the seats forward pop off the plugs, and have someone watch the top of the coilovers while you drive. That is if you don't see a loose screw the second you open it up.

If you don't see the loose screw it might still be loose just snug because the spring is fully extended.

How much did you end up paying? I think thats the first 2 owner Cadenza here!

I am also experiencing rough start ups recently, and the weather just got warm. It consists of a louder engine and vibration. once it warms up, its fine though.
