1997 Kia Sportage EX 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I bought my Kia new. During the first 6 months I had a few problems. The air bag lights would not go out. I brought the vehicle for service about 6 or 7 times and finally they fixed it. Overall the vehicle has been reliable. I had the front bumper repainted(the paint flaked off) However, I used the vehicle for a sales position. I drove all over New Mexico, Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Wyoming, and Texas in this vehicle. The only thing I did was replace the brakes and change the oil. The vehicle ran great until 90,000 miles and then I had to replace the timing belt.
