kia stinger owners listen up! this one is for you πŸ™ˆ

#tdil kia are recalling all kia stingers πŸ™„ … as long as they’re yellow πŸ˜…

pretty precise recall that isn’t it πŸ™ˆ “every single kia stinger … providing it is yellow” πŸ˜‚ either someone on the production line broke all the yellow ones through some weird tweetie pie rage or there’s an issue with the actual colour πŸ™ƒ

turns out, it’s the latter … the yellow colour (which is epic … hats off to all of the yellow owners out there) is a problem due to the paint being faulty πŸ™„

apparently, the oil in the paint – that is ironically used to ensure longevity and strength – causes the paint to crack πŸ˜• #notideal … kia say it happened due to a supplier defect πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

anyway, doing customer service correctly, kia have held their hands up and are offering all yellow stinger owners a free respray and a lifetime paint warranty 😁

it’s a hella bold move by kia … especially when you consider they reckon each respray will cost $10,000 … literally killing any profits the stinger may have racked up πŸ™ˆ

nice one kia πŸ‘πŸ» thanks to this, i’ve genuinely gained a little more respect for the brand … maybe i’ll buy a kia next πŸ€” can you drift a kia? πŸ˜‚

peace πŸ™ŒπŸ» #tdil


i guess this kind of counts as a fact? want to read an actual fact … just take a wander over ->here<-

(kia didn’t do any press shots with a yellow stinger πŸ™„ so just pretend that one’s yellow please πŸ™ƒ credit ->here<-)
