The Stinger can Kill

2019 Kia Stinger gt

I leased a 2019 Stinger GT after turning in my Optima a year early. I leased the car on 12/18/18. Within the first 30 days my rear defroster made a popping noise and shorted out. I took it back to the dealership and they supposedly fixed the issue. On May 14th on my way into work the car made the same noise. I called the dealership to have it looked at again. I got into my car after work, within a few minutes I could smell smoke and pulled over on the side of the highway. I opened the hatchback to see the rear defroster compartment melted away and then flames shot out of the hole. Within 4 minutes the car burned down to the frame. A formal investigation was completed with my insurance company, Kia, and the NHTSA. Kia accepted responsibility for the fire. They bought the car back from the insurance to hide a fatal flaw in the car. After weeks of failing to return numerous calls and emails to Kia attempting to understand what the next steps are, we finally received a call stating that they were willing to reimburse us for the contents in the car- WHICH THEY HAVE to do. After several more phone calls and emails, a supposed manager named Jeff C. contacted us (of course they have no email address, last name or phone number). After going back and forth he offered to refund us the $2000 we put down on the car only 5 months earlier stating it was the cost of ownership! After asking we found out that if we accepted, we would have signed off our rights to any future actions. The fire department told me the only thing that saved my life was that I can a full tank of gas so it did not blow cause of the lack of fumes. I was minutes away from picking my 6 year old daughter from school. The fire started right under where her booster seat was. Do not buy this car as it can easily kill you.

2019 Stinger GT review

2019 Kia Stinger

The car handles great and has a lot of power. Only thing I would have wanted is better options like lane assist and an actual GPS system that you don't have to plug your phone to it. And be able to project phone on the cars LCD. I feel they left out options on the car that their lower models have standard and then offered those options after their customers complained and then added the options on the gt2 and raised the price tag on it to high for the amount of options they have.

2019 Kia Stinger Base upgraded from 2016 Kia Optima

2019 Kia Stinger Base

Car has a very smooth drive. Very upgraded interior from other model kits. Base model has eco, comfort, sport and custom mode. Can definitely feel a faster engine in the base still. Quiet not too loud when driving on highway or city roads. I previously had the Kia optima and I like that the stinger has the same if not more room than the optima for extra comfort.

The Stinger GT2 is very fast.

2019 Kia Stinger

This is my first Kia car.....I'm very pleased with the power and handling as well as the many standard features and the look... Two downsides..The first is that the gas mileage is very poor, around 14 MPG around town....The second is that as tight as the car feels, there is an excessive amount of road coming from the rear of the car..

the interior lights you have the option to change the colors.

2019 Kia Stinger GT1

Really enjoy the sporty luxury look without the cost. The current issues: phone calls. The Bluetooth doesn't work as well as when I initially purchased the car. The caller cannot hear me. However I can hear them clearly. The performance is tremendous

Cool car with performance to match!

2019 Kia Stinger Premium

Very reliable and responsive. Most importantly, with all the high tech features I let it drive most of the time - just need to be over 40 mph and with defined lanes. Other than that, it is worth every penny.
