Street price appears to be in the low to mid 40's for a loaded GT2 AWD. They're not THAT expensive.

KIA doesn't have a good track record of selling expensive sedans. That's the problem.

i think they could sell a lot more if they would advertise them a bit more. I see plenty of commercials n the local and cable channels for the optima and sorento, but never for the stinger. A lot of people come up and ask what kind of car it is. If they dont know by now, then marketing really needs to step up their game. Advertising by word of mouth is a really slow way to grow sales.
