The Kia Stinger is a modern classic.

The Kia Stinger is a modern classic. It is a car the the haters had to compare to cars double the price just to cope with the fact their second-hand 3 series with the oil leak is nowhere near as fast or luxurious. Really amazing trolling by Kia, well done.

      Because busriders couldn't get past the name Kia. Which is ironic because it is an affordable, high-performance and luxurious car. But no, busriders had coping strategies about stick shift and driving on the edge etc. Too bad I guess.

        It was actually priced cheaper than pretty much everything else when it launched. An equally equipped s4 was like 10k more. It was set to compete with an a4 pretty much, which it outgunned hard, but in the end, people really did just not care for it cause its a kia

      Because sports cars in general don't sell well anymore, it's a dying segment. People simply don't care about how powerful their car is, they care about practicality, in such a tight economy.

            It wasn't a flop. GM sold exactly as many as they had to to fulfill an export agreement with the Australian gubmint to get free gibs. GM never cared about selling a good sports sedan, it being fantastic is an accident. Even then, I'm not comparing sales, I'm comparing it as a sports sedan to the stinger, which it mogs in every conceivable way.

            The thing that BMW & Merc gays never understood is that the reason to get these cars wasn't because it was "kinda as good as an M badged 340i and better than most AMG's" it's because it has a rock solid powerplant that's been detuned and even a mild stage 1/2 tune on these things start punching their most expensive performance cars.

            Mind you that these are full ECU tunes that you can swap as needed because Hyundai doesn't give a frick. Unlike BMW cucking it's owners into believing they need to send their car to Germany so they can void their warranty and be allowed to load a different ECU tune. Of course at great expense. It's the BMW way.

            To add, the fact you have to go through so much bullshit to tune an Audi/BMW/Merc just to make it not suck. And those israelites expect you to send your foreskin as payment for the opportunity of modifying you own car. And that they're so obsessed with their service shekels that they'll spend more time & money investigating whether you ran a tune to void your warranty than just fixing the issue; makes the idea of giving these israelites money laughable.

            if you want to go throwing around aftermarket then yeah tuning a turbocharged engine to add boost will add more power than a tune for a high compression N/A, common sense stuff
            but of course you can slap on a RR Racing supercharger and have it put up similar numbers but at that point you are taking the soul out of the ISF in my humble DAtist opinion
            N/A V8s are rare enough these days

            intake/headers/exhaust/better cat(or delete) + tune is just fine
            RR Racing and their tunes have probably come the longest way in adding power to the 2UR, an engine that is part of an already dying breed

            The Lexus V8s are one of the few cars that are proven to go 200k miles on just oil changes. LS reliability is overrated and only applies to Gen 3 LSs pre-AFM and questionable metallurgy. At least the Dodges brand new you could get for $40k at one point so they're worth considering, just theft prone.

            And it's a toss up, the GSF was a more expensive car brand new so it's going to be nicer. It was trying to get buyers from the M5/E63 and failed. It's definitely much nicer inside.

      You're half right. The busriders who couldn't see past the Kia badge were a part, but the bigger reason was something else. It was the same reason the K900 failed: the Kia DEALERS.

      The Kia dealer network didn't know what they had in the Stinger, nor did they know who it was being marketed to. They thought they just had an expensive Kia that had to be protected from the average Kia buyer (just like the K900), so when potential Stinger buyers came in, they treated them like shit. The Stinger was competing with Audi and BMW, so it was attracting people who normally bought German, and Kia dealers were treating them like sub-500 subprime Soul buyers who'd be lucky to get a 20% APR. Potential Stinger buyers were coming and finding dealers were not only forbidding test drives but also anyone from even sitting in Stingers until the papers were signed. Potential Stinger buyers, who were used to the kind of experience you get at a luxury brand's dealership, largely said "Frick off" and went back to buying German. Most Stingers they managed to sell in the early years came from dealers that did actually realize that it was being made for a completely different market than their average clientele so they treated them completely differently. They corrected that dealer experience later, but the damage was done. They had one chance to break into the German sport sedan market, and they fumbled the bag hardcore. Hyundai avoided this exact problem because of what they learned selling the Genesis and the Equus ten years ago, and just spun their luxury cars off into a different dealership.

      I will give Kia credit, though. They learned from this humbling, and revamped their dealer experience for their premium models. When the Telluride dropped, dealers by and large actually knew what to do with them and didn't mistreat potential buyers like they did for the Stinger. They didn't frick up lightning in a bottle falling into their laps a second time.

        And you can see this for yourself. If you check forums or plebbit, the most common thing you hear about the Stinger nowadays is some variation of "I wanted to get one, but the dealer treated me like shit so I bought another Audi/BMW". The Stinger might not have been the best car in its segment, but it wasn't a complete turd. It's infuriating that a company's attempt to do something new and exciting, something that could have spurred more competition and gotten the Germans to innovate beyond just making more screens in their cars, was fricked so hard by their own salesmen.

            I'd say go for it if you want an AWD sport sedan. Compare it to what you'd wind up with if you found an equivalently-priced BMW, and you're getting a newer car with less mileage and probably more features. It's again not an M model, but it's not a bad car, especially not at that price. Take it for a test drive, I think you'd be happy with it if you're looking for that kind of car already.

          Oh yeah, i saw this first hand when helping dad shop for a car to replace the old E39 M5 he used to have. We were allowed to sit in it but a test drive was super far out of the question for some reason. No issues testing an M2, Miata or a GT86 either.

          The thing is, they had a pretty open goal as well. I have a 3.0 F30, pretty much exactly what the Stinger was aimed at, and aside from the engine and gearbox it really isn't anything special to drive. Bang average car, I haven't driven a Stinger but it wouldn't take much for the Stinger to be better

          Dealerships can definitely impact branding on higher end cars. It's why GTRs didn't sell well after the first few years of hype, because they priced themselves past Corvette territory and you'd get treated better buying a similar Porsche or BMW.

        I will actually echo this was exactly what happened to me. I went to go check out the top trim one because I was curious if I could make parts for it and sell it to other enthusiasts with my business and pulled up in a 280k spec 992 turbo s. They wouldn’t let me test drive it.

        I laughed right in the sales managers face and said how am I supposed to know if I want one if I can’t drive it? He said they had to protect it from miles from people who couldn’t afford it. I pointed at my Oak forest green metallic 911 sitting right outside the “manager box” in the parking lot and said ok cool I can afford it can I drive it now? And was turned away.

        To be fair I had this same treatment pulling up to a mediocre Mitsubishi dealership that had a Lucid grand touring (one step below the sapphire) that I wanted to check out and yet again the sales manager there wouldn’t let me drive it because “it was expensive” and that they don’t allow test drives on expensive cars. When I pointed out this had been on the lot for more than 180 days and pulled up in a car worth 3x as much, he didn’t budge. I told him whatever, have fun getting wrecked at auction when you decide to cut your losses. They had already marked it down 45k from when it was first listed.

        I wanted to test drive it at 105k and they sold it for 85k. Get fricked losers.

      kia, the company known for selling cheap cars to poors, suddenly sold a german fighting sports sedan. kia dealers had no fricking clue how to sell it, as the clientele that usually arrives is looking for a used kia soul, so it created a weird protectionist ideal in which they would treat anyone who wanted the stinger as an adversary to be defeated. along ei th that, the kia brand basically ruined any chances it had, as the US is a country in which cars are separated into classes. in a good chunk of the world seeing two cars of the same brand driven by two different classes of people is common (think toyota corolla and toyota century), but in the US that would be a toyota corolla nad a lexus LS. Selling a sports sedan with the brand name known for the Rio was a bad move to begin with, which sucks as the stinger is great

    Besides the brand, there are just better cars out there for the money. Most people would rather buy from an auto maker with an established history of making performance cars and not what people perceive as a 'economy brand'.

    This where the OP shows his butt hurt. The E46 M3 is probably one of the best cars BMW has made and that was 20 years ago. Yet it has the performance, power and luxury without all the electronic nannies. People still refer the car as an iconic masterpiece. In 20 years NOBODY is going to know or even care about the Stinger.

        Back seat legroom is not so great tbh. It works for kids or short trips though, and the headroom in the shooting break is apparently much better. Still, it's a compact car (shortened Stinger platform) and more appropriate as a second car.

          Worst reliability is the US, German and some of the Japanese brands like Honda

          Ironically the Korean brands are likely the brand sold in the US that has all three of reliability, performance and looks that don't exude homosexualry looking at you toyota

            I'm in early 40s former d1 big ten football back in the day, mid nine figure net worth, and have only purchased German brands until I bought the Genesis, always considered jap brands as for homosexuals, incels and poorgays and in my experience have never met anybody driving a jap brand that does not look like a homosexual

            Yeah, my "unreliable" car had a recall. The infotainment system. You could "inadvertently" adjust the backup camera to be too dark. Then you can't read the controls to make it lighter again. So dangerous. Glad I got that terrifying reliability problem fixed.

            Totally the same as hyundai fighting against recalls because their cars, no matter which branch of hyundaikiagenesis, self ignite at any time for no discernible reason. Absolutely identical.

            Also, my "less reliable car" is what I use to drive my coworker to work because some joyrider within walking distance to his kia happened to have a USB cord. Twice. Second time, the car was deemed unfixable. Totally the same as my infotainment issue. Fewer recalls is the best benchmark for reliability. Way to sell your brand, tool.

    I have a 2019 GT1 awd. I leased it, then bought it. I'm my late 50s. I also have a 96 Miata. the Stinger has been a great car. the stock brakes suck balls, but that's been my only real issue with 50k miles on it. tons of room. surprisingly, I've gotten several comments on how good-looking it is. it's a heavy car, so ripping on a back road isn't the greatest thing. the ride is very nice. It's quick off the line. 15 speaker, 750-watt sound system is good. I shopped for a G70, but it didn't have enough room. The C43 was too much $$. frick BMW.

      Stingers were discontinued because the only factory in Korea that made them was shut down and revamped for EV production. the Genesis G70 sister model still sells worse than the Stinger but is still in production because its made at a dedicated Genesis factory elsewhere.

            "Worked" is a strong word. Maybe "put his name on the employee roster after a more desirable company canned his ass for incompetence". BMW is a very high maintenance car, but at least you can park it inside a wooden structure without worrying about fire loss.

    A busrider would never appreciate the stinger because they could never afford one anyway, so when you're just comparing numbers for fantasy vehicles then sure, whatever floats your boat.
