I bought a "new" Kia Stinger GT! Today I'm showing you around my new Kia Stinger, and I'm explaining why I bought a Kia Stinger GT. I'm also going to tell you what I like (and what I don't like) about my Stinger.

i bought a 2019 stinger here in germany, fully loaded. I have a 360° Cam, Head-up Display, heated steering wheel, performance suspension lowering kit by KW and a sportexhaust by Bastuck. Luvin' it for 18 months now. And another benefit here in germany is that this car is excellent but rare, while Mercedes, BMW, Audi etc. are everywhere. Even the AMG ones.

I remember when this came out all the kia dealers turned in to complete jerks. Wouldn't let me even sit in one without a credit check because I pulled up in my Camry, I also own an M3 and an X5, this could've been the M3 replacement. The experience was so awful I thought this must be an outlier, so I went to the only other Kia dealership in town, same exact behavior. I swore off Kias forever. I remember going to Porsche & BMW dealerships in my Celica as a teenager to check out the newest cars and the dealers were always so nice and let me as a 16-19 year old sit in $90k cars so I've gone back there and bought cars from them. Here's KIA dealers acting like they're selling a billion dollar super car with Optima parts. F KIAs

The Kia Stinger could have been made way more agile and way faster by putting it on a diet by deleting all the unneccessary components below: 1. Delete the stupidly heavy Tailgate and replace it with a proper Bootlid and make it a proper Sports Sedan - Minus 10 - 15 Kg 2. Delete the totally unnecessary and extremely heavy Sunroof and replace it with a Carbon Fibre Roof - Minus 20 - 30 Kg 3. Delete the ugly Rear Quarter panel Reflectors - Minus Ugliness 4. Redesign the Headlights by making it it a little more elegant by removing the unneccessary downward, outer kink... - Minus Ugliness 5. Change the Steering wheel design a little - Minus blandness 6. Add Wood trim to the Interior design - Minus blandness The Kia K5 could have been made into a proper car by: 1. Giving it a proper Frt Longitudinal RWD Setup 2. Giving it a proper Sedan side profile... 3. Delete the totally unnecessary and extremely heavy Sunroof - Minus 20 - 30 kg

Got a 2018 GT2 in March of ‘19 for $36K brand new. I found a glitch in the KIA leasing arrangements. KIA was giving lease cash to buy down the monthly payments for peoples leases on remaining 2018 stock (lesser amounts the longer your lease term). Not unusual for a car company to do that. I did the best bonus which was for a 2-yr lease at $10,000 and then negotiated the other $6,500 off sticker. A month later I paid cash for the car and KIA Financial doesn’t charge for the interest that would’ve been made during the lease term had I fulfilled it. To top that off they had 0% in fees to buy or pay off early, and the $10,000 bonus was all mine and didn’t need to be paid back. Don’t know if things have changed in their lease contracts, but look into it because keeping the bonus with 0% interest recovered on the lease is ridiculous.

This stinger has done very well im my dealership. The problem is they dont allocate many. If they dont allocate them we cant build them to order. Havent been allocated hardly any this year.

@Texas 325 Wtf? My point was they both made the same type of tactical business decision. Even if I were comparing the two car companies, isn’t it funny that some reliability reports have KIA/Hyundai/Genesis ranked higher than Toyota/Lexus? Maybe I should look at comparing them in that way...

@Jacob W too bad Kia isn't reliable brand dont you dare compare them to Toyota/Lexus.
Jacob W
Jacob W Πριν 13 ημέρες
Similar to the purpose Toyota/Lexus had for the Lexus LFA, I don’t think KIA’s goal was ever to make a profit on the Stinger or sell big numbers of them. It was purely a brand enhancement tool to show the world they can compete and make a car that’s competitive with more prestigious brands.

2018 GT2, have both 360 camera and fold overs over the cup holder.. :) Love my Stinger, best winter car I've ever had, no issues with the dual turbo at -20 C, and it eats snow and slush. I think alot of people miss this part, it's a built for winter GT, unlike the competition, it works without a fault. This is coming from a BMW/Volvo buyer. All other turbo feed cars I owned, don't even recommend you starting the darn thing if it is below -15 C.

Sorry Doug, I don't agree with you about spending the same amount of money on a "more" luxury brand. For starters, if you're going to buy a German equivalent, you're probably looking at over double the price (not incl options), luxury car warranties will be definitely half of what KIA offers and the price of parts and servicing will be double what you pay for the Stinger. And seriously, you're complaining about not seeing your music on the heads-up display?
