2016 Kia Optima: A Quick and Affordable First Service
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on September 5, 2016
As I noted last week, we neglected to take our 2016 Kia Optima in for its first service at the prescribed 7,500-mile mark. But better late than never. I headed over to my local Kia dealer to get the oil change and tire rotation taken care of.
My service advisor, Kasey, at Future Kia promptly entered my information and got the service started. I hung around in the lounge and sipped on a caffe mocha from a rather fancy-pants automatic coffee machine. I didn't have to wait much more than an hour before she came in and told me the Optima was ready.
The total bill for the oil and filter change and tire rotation came to a very reasonable $45.49. After the appointment, I set our Optima's in-car service reminder function for 15,000 miles. That should get us back on schedule.
