Welcome

Hi Guys,

new guy here :D

At the Moment I'm driving a 2011 Hyundai i30 with a 90 Hp Diesel and it's time for something new not only because I've just had a check enginge light (P0234) but also because it's time for something with more power again. Looking forward to the 2.0 Stinger maybe with AWD but I'm not sure about that yet.

So I'm looking forward to the new car and especially the community here!

Hey everyone--I'm looking forward to trading in my 2014 X1 for the Stinger within the next year. The idea of a RWD drive, Non-German, performance oriented sedan is super exciting. I also have a beloved 2016 Focus RS that's my fun / autocross car.

Hi guys. Found you all on Facebook. Late 40's BMW 3 Series driver that wants something a little bigger, with some better tech, and costs less to maintain. I am looking forward to being part of the community.

Welcome, I'm on the same boat as you in terms of looking for something that cost less to maintain.

Hi Everyone, been lurking for a while but decided create an account to introduce myself.

I'm Lance, originally from Fort Lauderdale but currently living in Vegas, found you guys on google while researching for the Stinger and this forum seems like a good fit for me.

Like another member here, I also currently own a Focus RS and AMG C43 (wife's car), looking for something that's slightly bigger and more comfortable for daily driving. Looking forward to spending some time and learning from everyone here.

New here today. Contacted Billion Kia here in Southwest South Dakota a few minutes ago. They stated they should have the Stinger in the showroom 4th quarter. Sales guy even said they will have them early October.

Cheers

Greetings and salutations!

I took interest in the Kia Stinger when I learned Hyundai was branching off their Genesis brand into a more luxury brand. My daily is a 2014 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Ultimate, unmodified, but only 12K miles in 3 years (Yay! Work truck!). With only just tires (starting to dry rot, heck they are 4 years old) and a little bit of curb rash on 2 rims (EX-girlfriend.. within first week!) [hatchet] I was interested in Hyundai's 3.3TT model but I just don't like the style of it. It's not as aggressive looking or sporty. If only they would put the 3.3TT in a Genesis Coupe.... anyway, that's why I started looking at the Kia Stinger. To me, it's the best of both worlds. I'd rather have a coupe, but the sedan looks aggressive and stylish, like a Genesis Coupe mated with another car and had a child. The aggressive look of the front end, Genesis Coupe, and the stylish (and sporty) look of the rear end.

I hope to go to a dealership this weekend and find out more about when, how much, packages, etc. etc. but from what I heard, even the dealerships don't have much information to give out, or can give out yet, for the US market.
