Hi All

I’m incredibly in love with the looks of the Stinger, I’m so close to purchasing a 2018 3.3 with 25,000ks , is there anything I should be looking out for ? I’ve taken it for a drive twice and it feels awesome. It’s a Kia dealership here in New Zealand selling it and I noticed today it has already been serviced 5 times so it’s seems to be well looked after, just thought I’d put it out there before I spend 50k on a car. Any information much appreciated.

Hi Jase,

Check the brakes, they tend to weather pretty quickly. If possible, go (safely) at a high speed and hit/hold the brakes, see if there's any vibration. Also, try out launch control. A not so serious glitch that happens to my 2018 is that sometimes the sound of the speakers will all go to only the rear speakers, I open the settings and move it back to the center and it is good to go. Good luck! I hope you get it, I love the underappreciated Stinger.
