I have owned my Sportage for almost a year, and I love it. It is the best car I have ever owned, and you can't beat the warranty. Drives great and looks like a more expensive SUV. I would definitely buy another Kia, they have really stepped up their U.S. models lately!
ManuMatic transmission, fold flat rear seats (one motion folds them completely into the floor board), sound system, heated mirrors.
Better gas mileage (it's not terrible, but could be a little better), more accessories available, keyless entry remote needs to be redesigned (hard to unlock all doors sometimes).
