    Are 2018 Stingers "safe" to buy?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    There are some solid deals out there on 2018 Kia Stinger GT2's, but I'm afraid to purchase a 2018 model due to all the issues I've read about (rattles / squeaks / rotors / paint / etc.). Is there such a thing as a "good to go" 2018 Stinger? Is there a VIN number range I should avoid? Thanks for your time and help.

    If you’re buying a new 2018 it’s 1000% safe from recalls.

    There isn't really a car marketed nowadays "safe" from recalls whether it's mechanical or electronic in nature. It's a series of battles that you pick and choose with any line of any automotive brand. Also, refrain from digging into the vulnerability of the electronic and wireless systems of a typical vehicle in the market today, it might make you not want to own/drive a car anymore

    Most likely you'll be getting a later build which should have addressed some of the problems you listed.
