2012 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)

Review

I have owned the 2012 Kia Sportage LX FWD for little over two months and about 2,500 miles. So far no mechanical complaints. Performance, ride and mileage is what was expected. Audio and Bluetooth functions work fine. My one complaint concerns reflective issues with the windshield. In direct light the dashboard reflects up into the windshield causing visibility issues. A cut out in the dash over the steering column reflects directly in the driverís line of site. The reflection worsens in some lighting conditions but is pretty much always there Ė even on cloudy days. If I could get a clear view through the windshield Iíd be totally satisfied.

Favorite Features

Decent gas mileage. Easy to maneuver and park in tight spots. Comfortable for this class of car.

Suggested Improvements

Fix problematic reflective issues with the windshield.
