I bought a Kia Stinger a couple months ago and love it. If you can't quite afford a Maserati but want to feel just as special when your driving this is the car for you.
Great power if you need it but also can get good gas mileage when using the eco mode. Sleek body design and even the base model comes with several perks that you usually don't get without paying for a higher package. I have owned Kia's for several years and know reliability is of no concern. I am a very happy camper. Life is good!
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
2018 Yellow Stinger plant issues.

Purchase the 2018 yellow Stinger back in May immediately started noticing chipping of the paint couple months later got recall letter from Kia telling me that they would repaint the car. Took two months to get it repainted and never been the same as before. Quality of the paint job is horrible still dealing with Kia Motors on that issue. I have had the worst customer experience with Kia Motors executive satisfaction team. The issues that I've had with Kia Motors are the following. They keep passing my case from case manager 2 case manager, no follow-up, long lapse of time in between communication, they keep repeating themselves over and over, no communication between corporate staff and local dealership. I have been dealing with this issue for 6 months now. Not a happy camper. Love the car hate the BS that's come with it.
We had a wonderful experience with Joe. We were looking for used but bought new because of Joe. I would recommend going in to see him any time. He was professional and nice as was the rest of the staff. No pushiness and the dealership was very clean and neat. The best part is the staff picked the perfect car for me and I love it!!

You get slot for the money, if you can get over the Brand you will love this car. It is quick and styleish. The interior is nicly layed out for driver. You have to drive one to understand.
Very helpful and knowledgeable, easy to deal with and very patient as well. Will definitely buy here again and will referred out to Tom James.
Some issues showing at 20k miles

Love the car to start with
First issue and biggest at the moment is that I have had 3 sets of front brake rotors put on this car under warranty due to warping issues
These have been replaced under warranty every 5-6k miles
Set an appt w dealer 12/17 for radio and asked if they had new rotors in stock for car since this is an ongoing issue for all stingers with the Brembo brake package
I was told by a service writer that most likely rotors would NOT be covered under warranty since it has 20k miles- these rotors lasted 5800 miles! We shall see about that and I’ll update
Car is going to dealer on 12/18/18 for new radio warranty as it would go black screen and unresponsive
Also it would shift speakers to the rear whenever it felt like
As of today I am started to get a whine/loud noise when I turn sharp right at slow speed
Very noticeable w back seats down
Sound like wheel bearing or diffferential having issues
I had a great experience working with Chris on the truck I purchased along with the trade that I brought in. It couldn't have gone smoother and appreciate him being upfront during the process.
My 2018 Kia Stinger Nearly Exploded
by Kinda Famous from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Less than 3 weeks into the leasing of my new blue Stinger...not the GT... it had a major loss of power while doing 80 MPH, white smoke coming out of exhaust pipes and terrible smell. I nearly crashed but managed to get it to the side of the road. It was towed to dealership after that. Subsequently it has been in the shop for over a week now ...3100 miles is all it has on it! The longer I wait for the repair the more upset I am becoming. I will look to have the car replaced. I LOVED it and think I got a factory defective vehicle.
I was impressed with how my sales rep-Sean was not pushy but very helpful. The rest of the team also took care of all my concerns that I had with my end of lease options. I ended up with a great looking car(Optima) and a great interest rate 0%. I would highly recommend working with Grand Kia, I would imagine that the other side GMC, Buick would be just as great. Great job Sean!!!!
