Would like a convertible Sportage next time

2002 Kia Sportage 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

In nearly 2 years of ownership, really liked this SUV. My biggest complaint is the hassle of the spare tire holder being mounted on the rear hatch. You must have two hands available to open and close the rear - what a pain! Otherwise, it was roomy, the 4WD worked great, the fuel economy was as expected for the class and I had few issues. I suspected a head gasket leak at around 80,000 mi but despite the smell and liquid on the garage floor every day, no one could identify the leak source. Now that I can get another car, I'm looking for a convertible Sportage 4WD - best of all worlds!

Favorite Features

4WD, power windows, compact size and still quite roomy. Did everything I ever asked of it.

Suggested Improvements

Find somewhere else for the spare tire! Please!!!
