Came home tonight in a virtual white-out
with 50 mph winds and 1-2 ft drifts!!
This is my 1st 4x4, so obviously, I was
very impressed after seeing no less than
a dozen other vehicles off the shoulder.
Yes.....MOVE THE CUP-HOLDER! Otherwise,
I can't say enough about this SUV. Very
quiet & smooth riding - turns on a dime!
No rattles, tight construction, and lots
of room (unless you're Arnold...) Can't
figure out why everybody wants an
Escalade at a Kia price! 2.0L Engine
(made in Japan) is nimble & responsive
(5-spd manual), better gas mileage than
the Geo Metro I came from. Guess I just
got a good one.....wife bought a Hyundai
Elantra same day!
Responsive handling & ride. EXCELLENT
visibility all around.
2002 Kia Sportage 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love this vehicle. 1999 Model Year.
Bought it w/42,000 miles. Found that
Prv owner brought it in for an
electrical issue when doing lemon
check, but no other issues. Fun to
drive. Can't wait to take its top off!!
These vehicles are hard to find used.
nice looking (dark green)
better gas mileage
a little better pick up
I was in the market for a car to drive
to work for a couple of years then turn
over to my (now 14 yr) daughter. With
the cash-back, warrenty, and the fun
driving this was a great pick. I have
had no problems with the car, which I
bought at one of Memphis's leading
dealerships. I might have to get my
daughter another car!!
Fun drivability, CD player, I used the
roadside assistance for a flat tire and
help was there in 20 minutes.
This thing is great. I've had it a year
now and have not had any problems,
though I read some pretty bad reviews.
Maybe I got lucky or they had unreal
expectations of this truck(yes it is a
truck). It has plenty of power
considering the way people actually
drive. I mean, I find myself leaving
cars behind when starting off from a
light. The automatic does have power
problems due to its gearing. The 5spd is
fine. In slippery conditions not having
tons of power makes it easier to control
wheel spin and keep traction.
