Best first car!

Vehicle: 1999 Kia Sportage 2dr SUV

I bought this car as my first car a little over three months ago. I am the third owner and two boys attending college had it before me. It is in good shape. I had to replace the brakes and front row seat-belts, but other than that it was in great condition. It had its rattles and noises, but for its age it is fairly quiet.




Too many issues

Vehicle: 1999 Kia Sportage 2dr SUV

For being an older car, it is still fun to drive but I have paid too much for repairs. It has been in the shop numerous times for the check engine light and has never been diagnosed. It accelerates slowly and sometimes the transmission has problems (I forgive this due to age). BOTH the driver and passenger seatbelt have broken. I have also had to replace the soft top and the cd player has never worked correctly. It's hard to fit people in the back seat and also hard to put stuff in the back since the window is attached to the door. Other than that I've had a lot of fun driving it and still get people telling me how 'cute' it is. And I get 21 mpg for mixed highway and city.




Way too many issues

I would never repurchase this car or the make. Thank God it's gone!
