    The TSB says it applies to Stingers manufactured prior to May 2018. Mine was January 2018, which was stated on First Kia's service receipt. I had the car brought in for this issue as well as the wiring recall. Screenshot from the TSB attached which clearly states "prior to the dates above"

    Ah .. thank you.. I had read previously that it was only the May 2018-manufactured car (which indicated to me a specific production run of the head units) probably had a defective digital signal processor or the like.

    Thank you for the correction. Still.. Kia doesn't seem to want to actually fix this issue unless you raise complete and utter hell with them.

    De nada (just returned from a trip to Mexico)
    Sadly, I agree with your final conclusion. And I really do like the Stinger, but if the company won't stand behind the product, not sure why they act surprised (like Audi) when I don't want to roll into a new lease. Also bummed they discontinued the light color interior. Black and dark red is a non-starter for me here in sunny LA.

    Build date of 10/17. Currently having my head unit replaced and am driving a newish Altima from the dealership (they sell multiple makes). I miss my Stinger.

    Anyone notice new squeaks and rattles following this SA/TSB? It took nearly two years for them to acknowledge the damn issue (although it really is difficult to replicate on cue). I perseverated taking it in because the thought of my dash being taken apart and reassembled makes me think new squeaks and rattles await.

    I did not experience any new issues from the replacement. I had the same concerns but so far all is well

    Yup. When making decisions that can have prolonged consequences, I'll often be subject to analysis paralysis.
