2014 Kia Cadenza: 15,000-Mile Service
October 16, 2014
After nine months and roughly 15,000 miles, our 2014 Kia Cadenza again requested normally scheduled maintenance by flashing its "service required" wrench in the instrument panel. With the Cadenza's pleasant, worry-free first service in our minds, we brought the luxury sedan to Kia of Cerritos.
The service bay was jumping when we pulled in on a Friday afternoon, and we were happy we made an appointment. An advisor quickly made his way over, checked the car in, and sent it to the bay.
Our car was ready to go less than an hour later. The 15,000-mile service calls for an oil change, tire rotation, air filter change, and more comprehensive set of inspections than the Cadenza got during the first service. Thanks to Kia's complimentary maintenance program for the first five services, we paid nothing out of pocket.
It is worth mentioning that since we got our Cadenza, Kia has halted the free maintenance program. Cars delivered after March 1, 2014 are no longer eligible. Had we paid for this visit it would have cost $139.95.
