Ordered July 21 Yacht Blue GT Line S AWD with Heat Pump Arrived 14 May 2022
I went to a car show in the summer, you should see how bad the panel gaps and alignment were on cars well over 100K, Rolls Royce who advertise how good there builds are, when i pointed out a bad panel gap on a Ghost model I thought the guy was going to cry.Thanks. On one hand, KIA is not known to be a top notch manufacturer so small things like that are to be expected...but then again, it's a $60k car or more in some regions, I expect better. Someone mentioned on one of the forums that the EV6 and Ioniq 5 are actually a $30k car with a $30k electric drivetrain/batteries slapped on. Looking at it from that perspective, it makes sense. Can't expect The quality to match that of an equivalently priced gas vehicle. I'm just disappointed because this is the most expensive car I ever bought.
As you said though, it's not the worst (low bar lol) and function is not affected. I did the test where I parked with one wheel on the curb and there was flex because I noticed a difference in the gap, but it was nowhere near the other people on here with the parts rubbing. I don't think I'll fiddle with it because it might make things worse, so I'll just live with it. When I have time, I'll take calipers and actually measure it out.
You do not get the same level you used to get where cars were built by hand from the ground up.
