2010 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

If you can find one used and it's been properly cared for, buy it! This baby is the Korean Energizer Bunny! I bought it new in July 2010, just turned 100,000 miles this week and the only two times I needed help for it were a dead battery and a $2.99 O ring in the battery that failed on my way to work one morning. Maintenance is not cheap, but worth it for a car that faithfully gets you where you're going. The only negatives are the awkward headrests (took a while to get it into a position that allows my head to remain upright) and the ride is a bit like a pickup truck--a non-luxury one. Gas mileage is great; until a few months ago, was getting 29-30 average MPG, all non-highway driving. My daily commute is 54 miles total, half 55 mph and half stop-and-go 45 MPH or less. I do play the lights when possible to avoid wasting time and gas that way. Just starting to investigate while mileage has dropped to 26 MPG average. Probably just some needed maintenance. Finally, whenever anyone asks me if I like my Kia, I answer with a resounding "YES!" Result? Half of the vehicles in my office parking lot are either Kia or Hyundai and we all are now hooked on the company.

2010 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this Kia new in March 2016 as a second car. After six years and 57, 000 miles, I can say this car has NEVER REQUIRED REPAIRS (other than routine oil changes and a new battery and set of tires after 5 yrs). What more can you ask of any car. The paint finish is outstanding, rivaling my Jaguar which cost 4 times as much! Excellent headroom is a plus for me (I'm 6' 5"). About the only fault I can find is the radio's dim LCD display, which is impossible to see in bright sunlight.

2010 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 2nd Sportage. The first one was so good. I decided to get another. The 140 hp 4 cylinder 2 wheel drive provides all the power you need plus 22+ average mpg! IT handles great in the snow, and rain, and visibility it amazing, the wipers clear about 95% of the glass. I highly recommend the Sportage to anyone.


Best Features

Satellite stereo with aux inputs for USB & audio devises; acceleration; manual shifter for electronic automatic transmission; gas mileage.


Worst Features

smaller front headrests.

2010 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV 4WD (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Well, it is my first kia. Family of 4, one working, so on a budget. And it is affordable. Overall good quality car. No majr complains. Except cargo space is very limited. When we go on a long trip we take my CR-V, since a stroller and luggage case simply don't fit in it.


Best Features

Acceleration.


Worst Features

Rear door to open sideways not upward. Increase cargo space.

I love my new Kia. It's the first one I have ever owned and I would and will definitely recommend it to others.


Best Features

it's very quiet and roomy inside with plenty of space for storage and/or other passengers


Worst Features

the only thing that could make it better would be free gas
