Have had my Sportage from new for 2.5 years - now at 75,000 km. Best vehicle I've owned. Absolutely no problems whatsoever - not even brakes! Other than regular oil changes have not had any issues at all. Warranty is great too! V6 is very peppy.
Ability to turn 4wd on and off; fold down back seats; leather interior; look of rear end
Seatbelts lock when touching brakes - makes it impossible to check blind spots. Have almost got into accidents due to this. Bumpers need to be a little sturdier - lightly touched a snow bank which resulted in a huge dent. Need headlights to come on automatically. Back wiper blade doesn't last long.
