The problem with Kia is depreciation is steep. I looked the Stinger as it looked good and had great performance but the resale values are killers.IT does get really good reviews though.
The Stinger is a great looking car.Best way around depreciation is not buy new with a Kia.
Can anyone recommend a good hybrid coupé?
My oldest got rid of his Mini...it was starting to become a real money pit. Replaced with a Jetta GLI. It's a 6sp manual transmission so I had to give him a crash course (no pun intended) driving stick the day before he had to drive 5 hours back to University. That was almost a month ago, sounds like he's got the hang of it now and he actually said he doesn't think he would ever want an automatic again. I told him he's coming along at the wrong time because I think manual transmissions are on life support at this point...everything is heading towards automatic.
But isn't manual transmissions almost an alien concept to you guys over there in the States?Here manual is still the most popular and only starting to slow down a bit with hybrids etc have auto boxes.
The new car offerings with manual transmissions go down every year, as does the # of people who drive it with the younger generation(s) lazier and lazier. Harder to sip on that $7 latte if you have to shift gears. Manual transmissions are candidly known as a "anti-theft device".
Interesting. I haven't bought a 'new' car in ages, always go second hand so bit out of touch on that one.My Dad had bought three over the last number of years and still goes for a manual
Company Car, Kia Niro Hybrid. Been brilliant, get 35miles on a full leckie charge, so ideal for local driving, and been very efficient on longer drive with petrol, as leckie kicks in when going slow.
I misread the Hybrid part and took me a few mins to wonder why you were so pleased with 35 miles on a full charge.
