I needed and inexpensive vehicle quickly. I was plesantly surprised with my Sportage. I get about 20 MPG with the six cylinder engine.
It handels well even with 70,000 miles on it
The radio CD player is garbage. They really need to improve it. On AM it sounds really bad. This is an expensive vehicle to maintain. The 60,000 mile service is around 1000 bucks. The engine appears to have dome style pistons. If the timimg belt breaks, you can kiss the engine goodbye.
