Just bought a 2018 Stinger GT rwd with just over 31k miles. I’m really enjoying the car so far. What are some of the common issues to watch out for? 2BAC3D38-751B-494D-B988-0591B1E06F3D.jpeg

Nice looking ride 👌

I would say the biggest common complaint is pulsating brakes on the GT. It's a known issue that Kia didn't address until the latest model year. You can save yourself the headache by replacing pads, or pads AND rotors, if you want smooth, maximum brake performance.

I've also seen complaints about weather stripping discoloration, paint peel in random areas and hatch rattle, which is an easy fix.
Other than that, these cars are proving to be mostly reliable.

Enjoy! 👍

Thanks for the info. I haven’t noticed any pulsating in the brakes. The previous owner may have swapped them out. I do some some paint chips on the hood that I need to address. I haven’t came across any other problems and so far it’s been a really fun car to drive.
