Purchased my 99 Sportage used in 2005 with 83k miles. Over the past 7+ years of ownership, I can honestly say this - most reliable car I have EVER owned!
Only had a few maintenance issues (timing belt @ 125k miles plus gaskets, wires, belts and tires)
Today I have 220k miles and still going strong.
I will not get rid of it, absolutely a good car/suv and will definitely buy another KIA!
