:lol:I think I would swing by the dealer and get that looked at before my first oil change. Being premium customers for the car we bought (or leased) they should provide you with another Cadenza to drive while yours is being worked on. You may want to call in advance and confirm just to make sure.
Ha, I'm happy that your dealership is so awesome! Unfortunately you and I are having two entirely different experiences with our vehicles. So as expected we have two opposite opinions on what we expect from the vehicle. My dealerships in the MD/NOVA area have maybe 1 or 2 Cadenza's on the lot, and don't have a single loaner.My dealer sure does have a new Cadenza ready for me to use. But, I can see why yours probably would not. Why did you buy a KIA anyway; go back to a Chevy Cavalier.
Yuck with this guy; go away.
lol. Exactly same here. Could be my driving habits, the power this dude packs is really fun. My X5 (4.4 v8, AWD) was my last vehicle that I could throw around with loads of power.You get 33 mpg? How fast are you going and whats the terrain you are driving on? I drive 65 mph and get max of 21 mpg.

Dont know what the problem is, maybe some of you should jut buy Lexus (BTDT), BMW (3 of'em), Cadillac (Yep, Escalade), Infinity (mhmm, G35), Mercedes....They'll have the doodads you guys NEED to drive the 300 miles a month you guy drive.
I got the car at 15200 miles, it now has close to 17k, in over a month.
Personally my wife and I love the car, we almost fight daily who takes it, and we both have pretty decent vehicles (I LOVE my truck, she LOVES her Jeep).
HOWEVER, if I had an option, I woulda just leased Tesla for what we pay on it.
To your point of the rattling, you talking about just the engine shaking? because i know mine does when start up, which is normal for our engine. Then to the fact of having the engine shaking when hitting gas and brake, i just tried it and sounded fine.But don't worry its all normal.Well...Dealer said that its normal..lol
I went on a drive with a tech and he did a power brake and throttle and the shudder (growling feel from the engine/trans) presented itself quite a bit. So I left it there overnight and they told me the next day that it was normal and 2 other Cadenzas did the same thing. They also told me that the rattle noise on start up is totally "normal" for Cadenzas as well..lol...
So basically any issue that comes up seems like its always going to be determined as "normal" for the car...they all do it lol..
So lack of oil pressure in the top end at start up is normal..umm..yeah right. Cant wait to hear how Cadenzas and other Kia's with the same engine are doing at 80k miles...
Anyone care to press and hold your brake pedal while giving your car some gas and let me know if your engine/trans makes a shudder with a bad growling sound? I am curious if any of yours do the same thing?
