2012 Kia Sportage SX 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Submitted review back on 08/27/12 12:30 PM which I still stick by. As for the turbo issue I was having it got fixed, pressure switch needed calibrated for the hot gas bypass, I've not had any issues since. Got 56,000 on the car now. At this car's price point, you won't find another SUV with this kind of power and gas mileage.
Acceleration. Gas mileage. Stereo. Traction control works well, had the car hung up in deep snow (using car to mash down +20 inches of snow). The traction control helped a lot getting it free (took 20 minutes or so but got loose).
This winter has been cold, if it's under 5 Deg F, the defrosters don't work. Left on high temp and fan speed they aren't effective. The car takes for ever to warm up, and in extreme cold conditions, barely does. Suspension still needs tuned, seats
still aren't comfortable.
