My first Kia
By C.Knill on
2002 Kia Sportage 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I wanted a 4x4 bought it used then it cost me $1800 to get the front wheels to work properly.Serviced at the dealship and was treated like royalty. I LOVE the fact its full frame and not a unibody!!! ABS and brake warning light come on stay on till shut down and restart for no reason. Low power but hey 4cyl and 4x4 dont mix LOL. Made its way through 4 feet of snow last winter and numerous flooded streets this spring!!Rugged little beasty...I'm happy with it.
I like the simplicity of the 4x4 selector...even my wife had it figured out first time driving it. (sorry ladies) well laid out dash easy to read. Full frame how cool is that!
Took it mudding and got stuck...beef up the power plant!!! Sound system needs to be located higher and the cup holders lower...ashtray should be optional.
