How reliable is a Kia Stinger?

My son found a used Kia Stinger and he’s been asking me to buy it for him as his first car. Is the Stinger a reliable model? I usually trust Kia but I’ve never heard of this car before, which makes me unsure.

It’s great that you’re learning more about your son’s future vehicle before purchasing it! The Kia Stinger has an average reliability rating, although repairs may be expensive because of the parts used in the Stinger.
That said, it’s worth mentioning that the Kia Stinger has a top speed of 130 mph and a 0 to 60 time of 4.7 seconds. As such, I would only recommend the Kia Stinger as a first car if your son is a very responsible driver!
