2006 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This was a great mid$ car. Was totaled in crash, and all crumple zones and air bags saved me! Never had any issues with this car. Owned it from 47k to 74k miles. Btw, I paid $9500, and after 14 months, ins paid $8300. Book value went UP even with 27k more miles on it. Avg. 24 mpg mostly freeway. For you gear heads, there is about a 1400 rpm drop between gears. 3800 rpm in 5th gets you about 72 mph on flats. You'll need to drop 1 on hills. Great car for the $.

Best Features

Well i guess that would be all the airbags, front and side. This car is what it is, nothing to brag about, but also nothing to be ashamed of.

Worst Features

Manual trans. could use a 6th gear for freeway driving. Think it could get 28+mpg with a 6th. Bad antenna design. Only got a few least fav stations and no AM.
