Purchased this car in early March, with 14,000 miles on the clock. Have put 6,000 miles on it in 3 months. Averaging 21 mpg 80/20 highway city split. (75 mph over hilly WV terrain). Very pleasant dealership experience. The USB adapter seems to have stopped working, the only flaw against this car.
Free 3 month trial of satellite radio for preowned vehicles. All wheel drive has been fantastic. Wife loves the ride height. 5 year/60,000 mile transferable power train warranty can not be beat.
The 4 speed is outdated, as is the 2.7 V6. Seems to have to hunt for gears going up hills. Both of these issues have already been addressed by KIA for the current Sportage. Make an AWD Soul and we will be the owners of two KIAs!
