This is my second Stinger and both cars have had the same issue. I had it on the 2018 and my 2019 does the same. When driving on the freeway/highway from about 60mph or more, there is the most annoying rattling from under the front passenger seat. Anyone else have this issue/solution?

Don’t have that problem at all. Surprising that both Stingers have the same issue. Have you alerted the dealer about it?

Yes. They said it's from road vibration. Go figure.

No it rattles. It almost seems like air is coming in from somewhere. it gets worse the faster I go. If you've ever removed a door panel to fix anything then had rattling inside of the door, it sounds just like that but under the seat.

ive brought my stinger in for highway noise, they told me it diddnt exsist. ended up at one of my buddies alignment shop and i had the toe of the right side of the car pulling against the toe on the left, essentially the wheels were pointed out in opposite directions. performed an alignment an everything was smoothe again. then i installed eibachs springs and what a nightmare! the whole front end shakes now . I thought it was a "stinger" it might just be a "kia"?

I've had the Eibach springs installed on my car since July 2019 & I've never heard a rattle coming from the suspension. The only time I heard anything was when one of my Whiteline Sway Bar Endlinks came loose in the front of the car. It felt & sounded like something was hitting the bottom of the car.
