2015 Kia K900: Which Service Interval to Follow?
April 23, 2015
In January, Dan Edmunds took our long-term 2015 Kia K900 to the local Kia service center for its first regular maintenance visit. Dan also pointed out the benefit of the K900's three-year/37,500-mile complimentary scheduled maintenance program.
While driving the K900 this morning, I noticed the dealer maintenance sticker in the corner of the windshield, stating service due at 13,335 miles. Our K900 was already at 13,663 miles.
Doing the math, I calculated that the recommended dealer interval was 5,000 miles, while Kia's manufacturer recommendation is 7,500 miles under normal use. Since the complimentary service program includes a maximum of five visits, K900 owners following the dealer schedule would max out at 25,000 miles instead of stretching the free program over 37,500 miles. That basically cuts out one free oil change.
