Great car problems with bi modal exhaust

I bought the stinger in 2019 with an optioned bimodal exhaust. Overall it’s been a fantastic car .. except the bi modal exhaust was replaced under warranty 2 years ago and now it needs replacing again and the service has been really poor from Kia. Still waiting 6 months after the fault has been identified. I feel like Kia ‘s service has deteriorated in recent years.

As good as the Germans, but with 40% off!

Quick, comfortable, fully loaded, reliable and loads of fun. To spec a BMW to this level would be ludicrously expensive. The KIA isn’t perfect, but neither are BMW and they look poor value in comparison. And the KIA will undoubtedly be more reliable. Show details

Best car I've ever owned

I love long drives but can't escape the kid chauffeuring either. My Stinger is a dream to drive whatever the reason for being outside! I've had it since June 2018 and so long as they keep making them, I'll keep buying them. Show details

Great fun car

Daily driver, great fun to drive and value for money…only problem is dealer networks and lack of service when dealing with warranty. Find a good dealer first as the car provides all and more in a sport hatch Show details

Feature packed Car that is the best of Both worlds

Before purchasing this car I took my time and test drove an STI, RS3, AMG-A45 and a Golf R. I was still going to look at other cars but when i test drove this car, i put a deposit down straight away.

The amount of features the built into this car is crazy. I've done 40,000 km in it and haven't had a single issue and i've definitely used my fair share of the launch control and sports mode too.

Also very fun to gap the cars of friends who turn their head and say "you purchased a KIA" Show details

Lovely vehicle with oomf but so far 7 year warranty and after service lacking

Bought from new during COVID.
Less than 600km and left back indicator stops working on a Friday.
We call the closest dealer to be told they will call back in 30mins to an hour.
No call back, we call back 2pm the same day and are told can't take the car in until next week- Weds.
Told to drop it off in the morning before 8:30am and leave with us all day.
Not Happy. Show details
