I bought th 98 Sportage thinking it was
a cute little sporty 4-wheel drive that
I would find useful. Unfortunately it
wasn't useful because something was
broke on it every 3-6 months. I wasn't
impressed with the service of the
dealership either. Now at 60,000 I'm
faced with trading it in because of the
horrible problems I'm facing. The
warranty is no longer effective and the
repairs are just too expensive. I'll
be paying my way out of this for quite
The only favorite feature I can think
of is it's cute and compact.
The only improvement I suggest is much
better quality parts and better service.
