Would you recommend this vehicle?

(Select your rating)

The fun of a premium European car, but for a price that won't break the bank.

This is a great vehicle. It has enough power to make it a fun and fast car to drive and get out of the way of problems on the road, but refined and elegant so that you feel comfortable driving both on short commutes and long trips. It has the drive and feel of a higher end European sedan, but the price tag of entry level. Have had no issues with it, and it's both nice to drive and to look at.

Very comfortable seats, fast, smooth, high tech

I love the stinger. It is really fast and comfortable. I spend most of my time in the car because of work. The radio is loud the seats are amazing. When you're on the highway it's smooth. I would recommend this car to anyone. There are multiple different modes on the car as well; sport comfort, eco, custom. It's a very high tech car the screen in the middle is huge as well.

Affordable luxury reimagined

The car is very comfortable, however it is awful on gas. Even when driving in eco mode gas is burned pretty fast. There is also an issue with the auto stop. At various times the car stopped at red lights and shut off completely. At which point you have to put the car in park and then proceed to turn the whole back on. The air filters in this car also go bad fairly quickly.
