31,000 miles of clock, the time will be in its 30,000-mile service. In my last update, I mentioned that Sedona’s brakes would vibrate slightly under certain conditions. Specifically, full-scale equipment or person driving to the next grade on the expressway. I called to make an appointment, a point of brake check. I thought the brake check was part of any major service interval, but there was a local dealer who wanted to charge $ 118 for a brake check while the other was willing to watch for free. Needless to say, I and the second dealer, although it is a bit.
30,000 miles of services include oil and filter changes, tire rotation, fuel system treatment, cabin and engine air filters, a complete visual inspection. Checking out everything, they noticed that the pad was only a bit worn. They are recommended to replace and re-pave / replace the rotor at the next service (35,000 miles). Although they did not find any errors, I did not care much because the symptoms only occurred under certain conditions. The total cost is $ 242.
Other than the 30,000-mile service, the past few months have been pretty uneventful for our long-term Sedona. That’s a good thing considering it’s already riddled with battle scars from other L.A. motorists. I wish I had more to report, but it’s been reliable and trouble-free.
There are, however, a few things I noticed after spending some time in other cars: the Kia’s multi-camera parking system is among the best. I was in a new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS550 and noticed its equivalent system was nowhere near as good. The image was not as crisp as Kia’s, and the software used to merge the images from the cameras wasn’t as high in quality. That’s a bit silly considering the GLS550 is double the price of a Sedona. I also hopped into our long-term BRZ for a trip up to the bay area and regretted it after about an hour or so. I made it home, but not without an achy back from the stiff ride and a headache from road and wind noise. I guess I’m just getting old because I’ll take the van for long trips any day.
