Review
Bought used 3 yrs ago with 48000 on it. Just turned 100,000. I have only needed to replace tires, brakes, & timing belt assembly recommended at 100,000, & rear wheel bearing. I love this little Sportage! Gets 18 to 24 mpg depending on winter or summer. I put tow package on it for my pop up camper, pulls easily. Issues I have is the parking lights burn out constantly, and the hatch door latches are somewhat stuck, odd. Runs great, it's peppy! Regular oil changes & tire rotations are the only "maintenance" I've had to perform. Wish it had a higher towing capacity for the V-6 but learned its because it has a light-duty rear axle. Can't speak for the newer Sportages, but this one is awesome!
Favorite Features
Adorable body style. Comfortable front seats. Split rear seats that go down for more cargo room. Peppy acceleration.
Suggested Improvements
Better rear hatch assembly hardware that lasts. Maybe a more heavy-duty rear axle that matches the V-6 motor ability to tow more weight.
