    Looks good but after only two and a half years it's leaking around the faucet when you turn it on. I bought it at Home Depot for $115 so not cheap. Very disappointed and would not buy Kohler again.

    Stylish faucet, but didn't last more than two years. Started leaking. From Kohler I would have expected more.

    I purchased this faucet at Home Depot 5 years ago. It has leaked for at least the past year. I couldn't repair the leak because the handle set screw is frozen in place and I can't get the handle off. Kohler has agreed to replace the entire faucet with a higher grade version. IMPORTANT: Kohler customer service told me the Home Depot version of this faucet is a lower grade product so Home Depot (and the other big box store) can price it lower. Kohler makes the same faucet in commerical grade for other retailers. Stay away from this faucet altogether and definitely stay away from the Home Depot version! ZERO STARS for this terrible product.

    I had the same issue as many others. Great looking faucet and worked great for about a year, then started leaking from the lever area

    For about 2 years this faucet worked flawlessly, but like other reviews I've now read, we have had bad leaking and needed to replace the faucet as we weren't able to find o-rings that fit for repair.I loved the functionality of this product. It was very easy to use and I like how it looked, but I do not recommend this product.

    I have had my Koehler faucet about seven years and about three years ago I called Koehler about the faucet leaking and they sent me new internal parts which fixed it for another couple of years. I just got around to taking the faucet apart yesterday to fix it and this time the rubber o-rings were failing. I went to Ace Hardware ( cause it was closer) and got two new rubber rings for it and it works like new again. I believe the size was 1 5/8" x 3/32". Also if you have hard water like me and there is calcium buildup cause of the water leaking out, just soak those parts in white distiller vinegar and almost all the buildup comes off.

    Installed easily eough, but quickly started to drip. Got so bad that within one year it had ruined our cabinet. Thought about returning to Kohler for "limited lifetime warranty," but after reading the other reviews, quickly realized this faucet must be of poor manufacturing quailty or poor design -- not worth the trouble to fix. I'll look elsewhere!

    This faucet is nice looking, has a good solid metal handle and faucet and a metal escutheon plate, unlike many which are plastic. The sprayer is plastic like most, supposedly so they don't get hot when spaying hot water. It is harder than some to instal but once installed was very secure. I purchased it in January, 2011, and initially loved it. By April, 2011 it started to leak slightly around the base of the handle, just a trickle at first. By mid May it was leaking badly! I yanked it out and returned it to the store for another product. I wasn't going to suffer through going to Kohler and getting replacement parts, tear apart the faucet guts and wait for the mechanism to fail again. I ended up buying the Moen Torrance, which looks almost identical, installed a lot easier and cost the same. Hopefully it will hold more than four months.

    Good looking faucet, easy to install.Main faucet is heavy duty metal but spray is cheap plastic with easy to tangle hose.Started leaking after ~12mos. Will try to fix with valve & o-ring kits.

    This faucet was fairly easy to install, appears sturdy and does its job well. I like the one handle design. Only two things keep it from being a 5 star for me - the sprayer is plastic and appears to be a lesser quality than the faucet, and the supply lines included are short - in our case they did not reach and that required a second trip to the store for an extension.

    I have bought Kholer products for almost 40 years because of perceived quality. This faucet, however, leaked within the first 18 months of purchase and has progressively worsened to the point that I have no choice but to replace it to avoid ruining our maple top kitchen cabinet. It is a sad commentary on where American know how and quality control seems to be headed.

    My wife loves it!! Enough said! It was easy to install, pots fit under it easily, it's a real nice faucet.

    I also had horrible problems with this faucet. Leaked after a year and a half from the base of the faucet and under the handle. Faucet is securely mounted to the sink, yet rocks up and down, clearly where the leak resides.DO NOT BUY!!!

    This faucet started leaking a short time after purchase, and was useless within 3 months. We will not purchase another Koehler.

    I wanted a Kohler faucet because of its reputation and the quality of its name. I never expected to have any trouble with the faucet. As far as I know it has a lifetime warrenty. But the faucet is leaking when I turn it on. I am told that the wash ring needs to be replaced. My brother-in-law is a plumber, and told me this. So I was disappointed when this happened. Otherwise, I love the one handle control and the looks of the brushed nickel finish. It is easy to keep clean and looks really nice.

    I have now owned this faucet for 2 years its great. It looks great and feels well made. The only thing that i don't like is it started to leak around the seals that let you move the spout side to side was a simple fix but would of thought it would last longer.

    If you are needing to replace with something inexpensive, yet pretty and functional - This is the faucet for you. Pleased with the item so far. Nice chrome finish looks good on the sink.

    I'm very happy with this unit, and am on here to buy a second one for another house. I didn't find it hard to install, and have been quite satisfied with it.

    This faucet is hard to install with its funny connector to the spray handle and the plastic pipes that come pre-attached.This faucet has been installed for 6 months and is very hard to adjust hot and cold mix. It makes a horrible whistling sound when the spray is used. This faucet is garbage and a significant downgrade from its predecessor.

    Not a quality product; problems early. The sprayer went first then it started leaking at the base.

    Purchased online on 11/25/10, delivered 12/1/10. Is definitely a very nice upgrade from my previous, and was easier to install than to remove the old one. Only downside is that it has a little squeal when running very slowly. Found this out when I left the faucet on during a rare hard freeze warning.Pleased with the product overall. Definitely recommend.

    Feels like solid quality and the look is great. Consistent with other reviews, the faucet started leaking after 1 year of use. I am returning tomorrow to try again before the leaking causes damage to floors and cabinets. Poor product here.

    I was very disappointed. Bought a second one, thinking I did something to it. It leaked also, badly.

    Bought this item a year ago and have gone through two since. The faucet began leaking after a few months of use and the new ones did the same thing. I would NOT recommend this faucet.

    Mine is almost 5 years old, but is leaking now. A few months before the leak it started "whining". I was going to try to get parts to fix it, but after reading the reviews, I don't want to take the time and aggravation to prove ownership and get parts and find someone to fix it, and not be sure the fix will last. Too bad, because I really liked the style.

    I am so disappointed in this product. I always thought Kohler was a good brand. After seeing the reviews, I know I didn't just happen to get a dud.I was "lucky" enough to get 4 years out of this faucet, but like many others, it began leaking and once we took it apart to tighten it and/or see what the issue was, the leak got much worse. I never would have expected it to break down so soon, but as I said, I was "lucky" to get 4 years out of it. I'll be replacing it with a different brand, for sure.

    As with the other reviews, the faucet worked great for about 18 months and then started leaking from the bonnet. This is my second one as I thought I might have got a lemon on the first which lasted about the same. There is suppose to be a lifetime guarantee but good luck on making good on it. I even bought the replacement parts for the first faucet. Don't do it. I say purchase a different manufacturer. This particular faucet is a dud.
