Thanks for any info on stinger for high mileage…
Are diesel stingers even available in the US?In my opinion, I think you'd be best off with a diesel. I find that typically diesel engines will last longer than gas engines for high mileage before needing significant maintenance. If you're aiming more for a gas engine, remember that the 2.0, 2.5 and 3.3 are both turbocharged direct injection. Any of these will need periodic carbon cleaning, and I just can't see a modern engine going all the way to 400,000 miles without needing new turbos, or more.
I doubt you can get 150-200 out of turbos. Replacing those looks like major pita.3k engine oil change, 30k trans + diff oil change, air filter cleaned/changed regularly and carbon cleaning preferably walnut blast every 80-100k, the car should last no problem. Turbos typically last 150-200k depending on how hard you are on the car, if tuned it will be significantly less.
Wouldn't that largely depend on how often you engage them, and how hard?I doubt you can get 150-200 out of turbos. Replacing those looks like major pita.
I don't think the turbos on stinger are something special. And due to its small size they are working a lot. Of course if you dont push them to the limits all the time, and change oil more frequently they will last longer. But still i expect them to fail after 100k. Also what indicators do you see, that is pointing to hunderds of thousands reliable miles?? Just curious.We had a diesel Peugeot; the engine was great; the electrics in that car were so screwed up.

I don't think that it is even realistic to ask the OP question about a turbo-charged car that hasn't been out four years yet. I have only read of one breaking 100K so far; there are of course more, but none "advertised" (yet) on the forum. By all indicators this car is going to be reliable for hundreds of thousands of miles; how many hundreds is the unanswerable question: and certainly not without replacement of this, that or the other thing, as with all cars that turn high miles. If turbos and other doodads are more of a future replacement/maintenance concern than having fun romping on it, then this isn't the car for you.
It's an odds game, certainly: with individual vehicles failing, but the mass pressing on to over 200K miles with minimal expense. The complexity concerns me as well: but that Kia would push a 100K miles / ten years warranty says a lot about their confidence in their automobiles and their commitment.I really hope you are right. I love my stinger, but i will be surprisingly shocked to see 150k miles without major (<$1000) problems from this pretty complex vehicle.
Umm, pretty sure the transmission is sealed.3k engine oil change, 30k trans + diff oil change, air filter cleaned/changed regularly and carbon cleaning preferably walnut blast every 80-100k, the car should last no problem. Turbos typically last 150-200k depending on how hard you are on the car, if tuned it will be significantly less.
