I have had my Sportage for 6 years
now, and despite one problem in the
first year that they had trouble pinning
down, I have had no major issues
with my SUV. KIA gave me an
extended warranty after the initial
problem. The car rides great and fuel
economy is the same as similar
models. The factory CD player has
lots of great features, and interior is
very comfortable and user friendly.
The styling caught a lot of eyes and
there was quite a bit of interest in the
car when I first got it. Plenty of cargo
room, and headroom.
Nice sound system, cup holder IN
the dash (no reaching to the side)
gas milage, so far quite reliable.
Cruise control and intermitent wipers
should have been standard. Louder
roadnoise that others I have driven
in. Rear wheel drive.
Lets say I could be rich, if it wasn't
for taking in this piece of crap into
the shop all the time. And all the
different dealerships charging me
different prices for the same work to
be done on the kia.
When it's not in the shop and up and
working it runs ok, but I always worry
if it will break on me again or will
something go wrong again. It's was a
good car when I was a teenager, but
stink nows. And stucks in windy
weather. Kia hates taking any
responisblity for anything that goes
wrong with this car.
The sound system. The space for a
single person and freinds. Good storage
Make a stronger car with a better
engine. Horsepower stucks.
I purchased my KIA recently from a
private owner. Although it had 120000
miles on it i thought it would be a good
investment. I spent 4000 dollars on it
and i knwo i shoudn't complain but i
mean the car makes too much noise. the
engine is liek deteriorted and it has NO
power. You have to floor the sucker to
actually et you somewhere. Its Cute
though for a teenager car but a bit
embarassing when you drie by some where
and every one looks at you casue your
car makes funky noises. Unless you want
a smooth ride, don't but a KIA SPORTAGE.
. .sorry. . .
Depretiation is not one of the best
parts of a Kia. However, I bought this
car used, so I got it for a good price.
You got a lot of room in it. I
especially like the high sitting point,
which gives you a very good overview of
High seats with good overview. Lots of
room. Low price when bought as a used
