Big SUV feel
By MattH on
2005 Kia Sportage EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
We were looking for a used SUV, when we stumbled upon this one. It had just come out, but it immediately caught our attention. Most of the suvs we had driven in the small segment, felt just that, small. But this surprised us with its solid feel, and impressive craftsmanship. We are somewhat brand conscious people, so this SUV really had to win us over to get past the KIA name. But we have had it well over a year, and it still performs wonderfully. I fully expect it to out live its 10 year warranty.
Interior quality, extras without the price. Ride quality. Workmanship.
Slightly more power would be nice. Hard to find correct air filter (in my area).
