Goal of posting this was to get 100% confirmation given that I have heard different responses from 3 sources. Hoping that this post, will yield an accurate resolve and confirmable facts vice being called a troll. Thanks.
MY apologies as to the possible "Troll" statement then.
BUT I will ask for clarification...are you a native Virginian?
And if so, your Sentence structure(grammar) needs a whole lot of improvement, as I posted in posts #7 and # 9. I also stand by my "concern" statement of other things than a starter motor replacement to be such an issue. BUT so be it, it is you who is looking at a Stinger and not me. Good luck in your decision making process, and I hope you come to a HAPPY decision as to what you end up doing about a "possible" purchase.

My grammar on a blog and being called out as being, or not being a Virginian misses the goal of the discussion. Unproductive given that goal of the post is to nail down, with surety, the mechanical work needed if a starter went out on a Stinger GT AWD. Not sure when and how this question will be finalized. And if this forum will be the place that it is done. Looking for factual, productive ways to get to the facts on this repair. Many thanks in advance to all that can add good information to the subject at hand.

Well you may be waiting to see for some time. As this is a vehicle owner operated open forum website and not a corporate managed tech service. Only a possible member that works for the Kia brand or a member that has one and had to have this particular task done would know. So don't let any moss grow on your "south side" waiting here for an answer..you may need to do further inquiries elsewhere on your own. If you really want that model Stinger, I'm sure you will continue searching on your own to get the answer to such a fateful precondition for your decision making process to buy such a vehicle.

This is an absolutely ridiculous buying question in the grand scheme of things automotive related. I don't think I have replaced a starter in over a decade, and that was on a 20 year old Porsche 911.

Listen up, it's a $40K USD vehicle............in 5 years of driving there are going to be "many" more things that will either add up to $3K that need to be attended to over time, or which will exceed that amount quite easily, regardless of who manufactured the vehicle.

Don't really agree with your point. This is like a powertrain cost but only for a starter. Let's confirm with the FACTS and let them stand alone once confirmed.

I remember having to replace the starter solenoid on my '72 Chevelle Malibu, back in about '80. Since then, no starters replaced on any vehicle I've owned.

Wishing that someone would put factual information about a starter replacement on a Kia Stinger, V6, AWD. The whole point of this. Ugh.

Please refer to post # 13 That I had. The 2019 is too new a model year even for independent "flat rate" publishers to have that information yet. I looked at a few sites and your initial price of @350-400 would hold IF no changes were made for the 2019 from 2018. You could be waiting a long time for your request to be answered here on an owner driven site (like most are). We are not the Corporate info site here.

My factual information is that it's a non-issue. If I were you, I wouldn't be worried about a starter. Your engine will probably need a rebuild before the starter goes out.

Some time back we had a couple of Kia tech's that frequented the forum in their personal capacity, who were a great resource, but unfortunately some a-hole members abused them, and they disappeared.

The enthusiast members here are highly unlikely to be in a position to answer your query, so best you persevere with the dealership or Kia Corp.
