1998 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I've driven my '98 Sportage from day 1. 7 years now. It's had a few problems. Most annoying was that I had to replace the starter about 4 times. $300 bucks a pop. It's a cheap, little car. You didn't spend $50K on a BMW. You spent $12K on a Kia. It's been a great car for me. If it died today, I got my money worth. Repairs and all. Most people don't post things on this site unless they are REALLY happy or REALLY upset with a car. I was tired of listening to people moan about this particular car that has been good to me.

Favorite Features

Cheap. High ground clearance. 4WD.

Suggested Improvements

Kia already took care of it with the new models. The motor was very undersized and noisy. But, it got you from a to b.
