Hmm. Wonder if there was a bad batch of production models if that's the case. Glad to hear that your dealer was able to have it addressed.

If the vibration is indeed being caused by flat spots on the tires, it should go away quickly. I'd suggest filling your tires a bit higher than normal and driving for around 150 miles or so.

I believe that so far this year Kia has managed to sell around 10,000 units. While this is less than what BMW, Audi or Merc have seen from their sedans, it's a solid start for a brand new platform.

A really unnecessary comparison and I don't know why every publication looks to benchmark new cars against Tesla's. Obviously they are going to have a huge advantage off the line. They should have at...

Wouldn't do this to a vehicle that's being used as a daily driver, but it looks cool for a show car. Is this also a custom paint finish, because it doesn't look like the factory red?

If they had done this test from a rolling start, I think the outcome would have been different. Imo the Stinger is still a way better value vehicle for the money.

While this is a relatively small amount of affected units, I can't imagine that Kia has been able to sell all that many Stingers this year. Hopefully they can get fixes out before any owners run into...

Really sharp looking concept imo and I think a widebody stance suits the Stinger perfectly. The interior is a bit loud for my taste, but I really like the custom setup they've done with the trunk....

This is an entirely normal noise for the Stinger as a result of the lifters on a cold start. Some also seem to think that the high pressure fuel system which is located just to the left side of the...

Diesel engine transforms Stinger for the worse

Welcome to the forum Mike, glad to hear you have an interest in the GT. There a lot of Stingers currently going for under MSRP and I've seen some in my area listed as low as $39k (slightly used).

Motortrend BDC contender

I'm assuming that there are a lot of people who are waiting on long term reviews, because that's where the Stinger is likely to fall short of German rivals. Even though its got the performance to...

I didn't realize that this repaint could be completed by independent shops. I figured that it had to be taken to the dealership. Let us know how the next attempt goes.

I think if they had opted for a smoother, less restrictive transmission that the lack of a manual would't be much of an issue. But with the current setup and forced up-shifting, it does remove the...

One of the first criticisms that we've heard about the Stinger, is the lack of a proper exhaust note on the OEM setup. It looks like some owners have found a much improved sound with some...

If anything it'll only stop people from buying this particular color. It's probably going to impact the resale value for anyone who went with this finish however.
