Went i had a Ford Kuga it drove me mad, ended up having bits of tape stuck all over it found problem in the end took me months
I do agree they aren't needed and have rarely used mine but in my Kia Ceed before the roof was perfect and never heard a single sound. This rattles and creaks from the moment I got it but as there doesn't appear to be a definitive fix I have never mentioned it to them and learned to live with it. Will be interesting to see how Dunc gets on with a new seal.100% agree. I'd much rather have a stiffer car and no sunroof. A big hole in car body is always going to be a problem. It's not only Kia that have this issue, it's a problem across all brands.
Exactly that!! Nothing for the same money that comes close......Oh no, how annoying! Difficult to say what to do next without hearing it to know just how bad it is. Of course, everyone has different tolerances to what they are willing to put up with.
You're dilemma would be what to replace it with!
That is upsetting for you but if you do decide to leave the Stinger the 540i xdrive is a fantastic car. My dad has a 67 plate and it is so refined and quiet. He has never once put it into Sport mode or planted his foot so can't say how it feels in speed compared to the Stinger but I believe they are a touch faster to 60 without me googling specs.I’ve spent half the evening looking at 540i xDrives with VDC and Harman Kardon......
🙄 hangs head in shame!
Haha, I haven’t gone there yet guys. Specced up as I’d want it (roof, VDC, HK, Apple CarPlay etc) they are a near £60k car new. So, I’d be 2017, 30k miles, £28-29k. A lot of car for the money.I also think the 540i xdrive is a lovely car, and here is the but , I would be worried about the servicing costs and god forbid it goes wrong outside warranty
I’m rapidly going off the BMW idea...... reliability is very poor compared to Kia. The more research I do, the more I remember why I chose the Stinger in the first place!540i would be excellent. I'd not own one without a warranty though. I used to pay £55 per month for my warranty on the 330d one the 3 yrs was up. Well worth it, claimed many many times!
I am seriously contemplating an E92 M3 in a couple of years to replace my MX5 once the Stinger is paid off but the amount of blown engines is mind blowing! The prevention fix costs £1,500. But the sound of that NA V8 is glorious. BMW reliability doesn't seem to be what it once was.I’m rapidly going off the BMW idea...... reliability is very poor compared to Kia.

Nuff said. I just need my car back now so I can get it cleaned up and fall for it all over again!!

A colleague at work has had his 320i less than 3 years and has been in numerous times with cylinders failing and constantly going into limp mode which they still haven't managed to fix. Definitely get an extended warranty for one.
My friend also has a two year old M8 Competition and it is currently with BMW for a failed gearbox. Stuck in neutral and it's done less than 5k miles.
Hi MattAnyone have rattles from the sunroof glass? I decided to see if there was any sun today ( there wasn't.....) by sliding back the sunroof cover only. What I found was that the roof rattles appallingly - was like heavy rain falling on the roof glass (surprisingly it was not actually raining at the time). Seems it's a problem Kia have had with other models.
Spoke to Kia today. “Car still stripped down, roof fixed, but now waiting for warmer weather to test it out and check the fix” (tightened welds anyone?)Nuff said. I just need my car back now so I can get it cleaned up and fall for it all over again!! (Sunroof fix-dependent of course)
My daughter (14) said today, “The stereo in this Stonic is crap, Daddy, I miss the Stinger. I want to go fast again too!”
