Not sure how recent this is, or if it has been noted here, but Consumer Reports has given Cadenza a big red circle for reliability.

While this is small condolence for those who have had problems, it does indicate that at least the owners who report to CR have had good experiences.

Really because Consumer Reports gave them a recommended check for the cars they recommend. Then in the report they gave it a ok circle for reliability.

I give mine a solid black circle....

24K miles

1 trip from houston to Indy and back
1 trip from Houston to STL and back
2 trips from houston to SATX and back
1 trip from houston to DFW and back

not a single issue but a rock chip in the window.

Big issue for me
Took 1800 mile trip, after 4 hours auto climate control stops putting out cool air. Fans goes to lowest setting. 108 degrees going across Arizona, windows open and hot as can be. This was in late july.
Took car to kia, answer was can't duplicate.
I'm stuck with a car without auto control on the climate control, can't access kiatechinfo so screwed.
This is my 5th and last KIA, never again will they screw me

Black circle means UN-reliable??
Reliable

upon further reading of his post it says "not a single issue but a rock chip in the window"
so no, it means reliable.
thanks

You said it. seems KIA doesn't care about the return customers anymore. Sell um and forget um.
I like the car and had thought about getting a K900, they changed my mind for me.


Bought a little 2007 Saturn sky red line with only 12,000 miles on it for a song and a dance.Looks like it was still on the showroom floor. 1 owner. every thing original. GM turbo tune upgrade 290hp and 340 lb/ft torque. Loads of fun

I'm waiting to see what KIA does in the next 1.5 years until my lease is up.... I've had success with them... my 07 Sportage has 91k on it and no major issues... I had the timing belt done about 10k ago...

The PreOwned k900 market might be good for me if our resale value is for **** like it is now... maybe I can pick one up for about 35k or so that 1-2 years old.

I haven't decided because I want another sports car and now that Im back with Chevy I might get the all new 2016 Camaro or get a newer c7 Stingray.

I personally would suggest against the K900 just because of how the poorly the Equus did. My mom drives a Lexus ls 460l and that is one of the best cars I have ever seen or driven, it can even do the parallel or horizontal parking feature. Plus she gets free hand car washes for life. I wish KIA did that. Although if going to the Chevy get the new ZR1 650 hp or the Camaro ZL1 those cars are my favorite.

ZR1 hasn't been announced yet... the zo6 is in production now. The ZR1 might be a mid engine and redesign for c8.

The Camaro is getting a redesign based on the ATS platform and will have the new LT1 from the Stingray.

Your right I meant the z06. Too bad that Hyundai/Kia don't make a v8 coupe or just put the v8 from the sedan into the coupe
