    Agreed...NOT covering the headlight issue is a huge red flag for me. This may require escalation as others have suggested.

    I would consider Kia paying to PPF the entire car assuming no issues on said paint before PPF applied. That may be a better option since PPF is typically good for 7 to 10 years. I think i would prefer this over a piecemeal respray. Just food for thought

    Thanks everyone. Needless to say I am not happy with the work that was completed, and while I do have a case # the dealership was able to get for me, I am going to be calling KMA (Kia Motors America) and see what happens next.

    I love KIA, have for more then 13 years now. My Stinger is my 7th KIA. Lets see what (if anything) KMA (Kia Motors America) says.
    Will keep you all updated.

    Just for giggles, listing out all of my KIA's:
    2005 Sadona (used - this is the car that got me hooked on KIA)
    2012 Forte (new, from same dealership)
    2014 Optima Turbo SX (new, from other dealership)
    2009 Rio (used, from same dealership)
    2013 Rio (used, from same dealership)
    2015 Rio (used, from same dealership - still have)
    2018 Stinger (new, from same dealership - current)

    When you talk to them, tell them about this forum and the others who are watching and supporting each other until this gets fixed properly. Unfortunately, loyalty to any auto company doesn't count for much these days. Best of luck and keep us informed.

    When will we see some photos? Did you go through the dealer or a paint shop?
