First 8 months with CPO 2015 SXL

Well I'm now eight months in with our CPO 2015 Sedona SXL. Bought it Aug. '18 with ~45k miles on it.

Overall the whole family loves the van. My wife was the most resistant to buying any minivan, but it's now her favorite vehicle to drive.
That said, I'm a bit disappointed by the nickle and dime issues I've had to get fixed. All under warranty mind you, but I'm about to run out of the 60k bumper to bumper and wondering what will come up next.

So far I've had to get the passenger sliding door motor replaced. It seems like the driver side is getting ready to go, but not reproducible at the dealership yet. Don't know if it will before the warranty runs out.
I've had to replace a broken latch handle for one of the 3rd row stowable seats.
I've had to get a leaking windshield wiper fluid pump replaced.
Recently the rear blower stopped working. It turned out to be an unseated connector, and easily fixed.

While all these issues so far have been fixed free under warranty, it's not exactly a quick visit to the dealership. It's taken a couple trips of about 4 hours and I have to go back again when the pump comes in.

I knew I was taking a risk with the first year of a model redesign, which is why I made sure it was CPO, but research didn't show this amount of trouble for most people. I've not seen this many issues on a 4 year old vehicle.

This is my first Kia, and like I said, overall we love the van, but it leaves me doubting my decision to purchase, let alone buying another Kia in the future. Hopefully this will be the end of my rash of little issues, but only time will tell. I really want to like this vehicle.
