Review
I love this car. I have owned 6 cars in the last 12 years from Ford, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi and Kia, but the supposed loser of the bunch, my Kia Sportage, is the most solid and fun to drive of them all. It looks good, has decent power from the V6, has an awesome interior with many standard features, plus the best warranty you will find anywhere. Granted, I haven't owned it for a long time so reliability is a question mark. One thing that I hate is taking a car in for repairs although honestly my other cars were reliable. I am taking a chance with Kia knowing fully well it could be a bomb. But if you look at the old Kias and compare them with the new ones I believe that is a chance worth taking.
Favorite Features
Side curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control, miles left to drive fuel sensor, stereo with MP3 and cassette player. Quiet ride. Comfortable seats.
Suggested Improvements
Could use 20-30 more ponies under the hood.
