2015 Kia K900: A Little Late to the 15,000-Mile Service
June 5, 2015
A road trip to San Francisco and the search for a future long-term vehicle pushed our 2015 Kia K900 slightly over 16,000 miles. According to the service intervals outlined in the manual and the K900's onboard distance-based maintenance minder, we were due for service at 15,900 miles.
We had good experiences with Kia of Cerritos servicing our 2014 Kia Cadenza, so we returned with the K900. I used the dealership's website to schedule an appointment on a Thursday at 10:30 am.
I arrived at 10:00 behind a long line of cars. Several porters were rushing around eager to help customers, but I waited two minutes before one greeted me and gathered the vehicle's VIN and odometer reading. Two minutes later, a service advisor brought me inside to take my contact information.
The 15,000-mile service consisted of an oil change and tire rotation, cabin air filter replacement and a more comprehensive series of inspections than the first service. The estimated completion time was 1 hour and 45 minutes. I elected to wait in the customer waiting room for the service to finish.
At 11:45, the advisor informed me that it would take another 15 minutes to finish the service and wash it. No problem; I wasn't in a hurry to get anywhere. The car was ready to go 20 minutes later.
The service cost nothing, as the 2015 K900 is the only Kia with a complimentary service plan. Up to five visits are covered in the first 3 years or 37,500 miles.
