Default In Market for 2015 K-900

Hello Everyone,

I am shopping right now for a 2015 luxury with VIP. I may of found one but it:

1. seems to have trouble with larger road irregularities - feels like it is leaving the lane but doesn't
2. make a faint humming or with very slight vibration at speed
3. the cruise control lets the car approach the car ahead, then brake, then speed up again, then brake, etc - at 65mph on freeway. (I do not have this with my current car - 2015 Cadenza).

Everything else works.

I can (and will) bring it to a dealer for inspection.

Any opinions on whether to buy extended warranty for about $2500?

Also, anybody extremely happy with their extended warranty company?

Finally, what is real life mileage on highway for a light on the foot driver?


THank you.

Ken

On the highway during trip I have gotten 27-28 mpg. Depending on where you drive. Hills really lower the mileage.
No longer have my 2015, traded for different car

Well, let's see, Heyguy10--

I don't have the lane holding issue. I would definitely get the front end looked at for that, and tires too.

I do experience a slight vibration sometimes, mostly at idle and low speeds, and I have no idea why. The dealer says everything is working as expected.

I think the adaptive cruise does accelerate too fast and then brake too hard compared to the way I drive--I wish I could train it to work both more smoothly. But unfortunately smart cruise is not that smart yet. But I don't recall mine doing exactly what you describe.

I have never bought an extended warranty on a car; so far, I feel like I've won that gamble every time. But eventually I guess my luck must run out. I think it's a calculation on how much the extra peace of mind is worth to you.

I find that the EPA gas ratings are pretty realistic - 15/23. I keep my drive mode set to normal--I think it's the best all-around choice.

Good luck with your search! And let us know what you find.
