I never thought I’d say these words: I now own a 2003 Kia Rio. And my god is it a gigantic pile of garbage that I will thoroughly enjoy destroying in an upcoming video series. But first, the thing has to somehow survive winter-beater duty.
The Kia Stinger is a pretty impressive value considering the speed, style, and features you get for your money compared to more expensive European sportbacks. Now Kia has come out of the gate hot with some really attractive lease deals.
The rear-wheel-drive Kia Stinger Sportback is the first vehicle to challenge some of the sport sedan badge snobbery from Kia, historically an automaker more known for budget cars than fast ones. How would you spec yours?
Everything is terrible all of the time, but there are moments when rays of sunshine briefly poke out to make our miserable lives a bit more bearable. Case in point: you can soon buy a Kia with rear-wheel drive, a twin-turbo V6 engine, performance optimized for the Nürburgring and a price tag that far undercuts the…
A few weeks ago, I bought a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero for $1 from a friend who just wanted the non-running junker out of her driveway. My plan was to destroy the car in an upcoming video series, but those plans have now changed; I’ve decided to trade the N-Body sedan for a ruined 2003 Kia Rio.
Kia Motors announced a second recall in the U.S. for more than 340,000 Souls, after it was discovered an initial repair for a steering defect may not have fixed the issue.
I’d like to deny that all Americans have some kind of yabboistic tendencies, but I know it to be false. Given the right time, we love smokey burnouts and loud cars. Kia understands this and will indulge us with the 2018 Kia Stinger. I don’t know if this is good marketing or if we’re just crass.
Kia has now officially taken a serious shot at the usual European sports sedans with the Stinger GT. According to the reviews, the new Stinger is pretty impressive, but to truly make a dent in luxury market, Kia needs to look beyond the cars and fix their dealerships, which, for the most part, are, shall we say, not…
The sporty Korean sedan with a hatch that came along and stole our hearts now has a price tag.
It is fair and justified to be skeptical of the 2018 Kia Stinger GT. A rear-wheel drive sport sedan from Kia? With 365 horsepower? Again, from Kia? All of it seems improbable, like something you’d experience in a wild fever dream. But it is real, and apparently it’s pretty good, too.
Buying a car because of the badges stuck on it is likely the most popular terrible reason to buy a car. It happens all the time, of course, and chances are it won’t go away any time soon. That’s a shame, not just because it’s stupid, but because it means a lot of people are pissing away a lot of money for no good…
Kia’s debuting its Proceed Concept car in Frankfurt later this month, but to get the masses excited before the reveal, the company has hit us with a couple of photos. Based on what I see, Kia just needs to toughen up and do it. Make the wagon.
I’m just going to come out and say it: I really like the Kia Stinger. I like what it looks like, I like what it represents, I like that it’s a Kia and I like that its trunk opens as a hatch. So when I saw these photos today of a poor Stinger with a Toyota parked on top of it, I got super sad.
Alright, Kia. Sit down. We need to talk. Sure, you’re just getting into the groove of this “cool cars” thing. That’s fine, understandable. But if there’s one thing you don’t do in this realm of “coolness,” it’s tease a beautiful shooting brake and casually mention that hey, you know, it’s probably not coming to…
You can take your BMW M3 and piss right off because this Kia here, this 2018 Kia Stinger GT, looks like it’ll be a right good and proper sports sedan. And for a fraction of the price, too, most likely.
Hey! Who wants a grilling tip before summer’s over? This one’s great: for best results, when transporting your grill, make sure the gas is off and for the love of anything, don’t light up a freaking cigarette in a closed car with the gas on. And, yes, this happened in Florida.
The all-new Kia Stinger GT is shaping up to be a serious contender as a legit sports sedan. The Stinger will have similar power and style like the Audi S5 Sportback but come in at a much lower price. By the looks of this video, it seems like the Kia would be more fun too.
The Kia Optima Hybrid isn’t a particularly exciting car. It’s slow but adequate, like most wash-o-matic cars in this category. But the Optima is so much nicer and more user-friendly than the ubiquitous Toyota Camry, it makes me wonder: do midsize sedan buyers just not bother with Camry alternatives at all?
Did you know Kia still made the two-door Forte known as the Koup? I had no idea this was still a thing. Apparently, I was not alone, and since no one really bought them, and Kia is axing the Forte Koup for the 2017 model year.
