Not sure what to say about our 2015 Cadenza, we bought it new for 10k under sticker and while it has rarely left us stranded its not built for reliability. Overall the power-train is proven and we can report seems solid. Frequent issues are minor but add up over time. Paint, trim, & navigation head unit have been our issues. The car drives well, and well powered for a vehicle in its class but lacks some features expected in this class such as turbo. Value is interesting, these cars new are heavily incentivized due to poor north American sales. We paid 26k for a car stickered at 36k, but three years and 40k miles later its value is around 13.5k.
For those who want a deal on a full size car, and resale isn't a concern then the Cadenza might be a good buy. If not, then there are much less risky options on the market.
