This 2005 Sportage is a great small SUV with BIG car feel. It sits and rides comfortably, with a great view of the road. All controls are easy to use and within easy reach. While I cannot yet speak for reliability since my Sportage is only 3200 miles old, I feel that I have an excellent warranty should I ever need to use it. The roadside assistance program is great. I have already had occasion to use it and the response was prompt. The responder did minor damage to open the door, but after some hassles, they reimbursed me for my expenses for repairs. I I think it is best bang for your buck in the small SUV range and I plan to buy another if I ever have the need
