Read the threads on these very forum about a damming vibration while driving the Plaid, plaguing all years from 2021 onwards.
I’ve been always tempted to get the Plaid, but won’t even as cheap as it is now, knowing that I will have issues with vibration on 35-45mph as well as above 85mph, besides minor issues and a fit and finish of early 90’s Kia. Maybe lowering the price is for an short term redesign? all bets are off.
Research a lot first, don’t make an emotional buy.
The 38 mph vibe is very minimal in mine. After my track pack brakes, I don't know what changed, but it is so minimal I wouldn't even know it was there if I hadn't experienced it before. Even then it was pretty minimal. No issues with vibes so far at any other speeds way up into triple digits.
I have to say while not perfectly put together, mine is well assembled and good panel gaps. Only issue was the rear camber one for me that accelerates rear tire wear if on 21" wheels. So I spent about $400 to correct that including a 4 wheel alignment.
With my track pack brakes, and camber dialed in, I couldn't ask for a better daily driver than my Plaid. It is a phenomenal car for the money and at the current price, the performance bargain of the decade, if not century. It has been bulletproof so far. Very little battery degradation is just icing on the cake.
As well know there people are more vocal about negative issues. There are issues but high widespread they are is truly hard to determine on this forum. The problems that afflict some Plaids are also present in the refreshed long range S as well. OTOH, my long range S had absolutely no vibration issues at any speed. I think we are developing a better understanding of how to correct some of the issues. Maybe with more time, there will be an aftermarket fix that solves it for the people who have really bad issues.
At the current price, the Plaid is worth it even more than ever.
