Nice car, shame about the ride.

Vehicle2012 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewI like the Sportage. It looks good, is well built and the engine seems good. Fuel economy is very good if you are light footed. I get 33mpg at 65mph on the free way and about 24mpg on the school run. I want to love it but it's just too hard a ride especially on New England's appalling roads. I come from a relatively poor European country and the roads were nothing like these. A pothole was a rarity that you would call the police about! You feel every bump and road seam. Road noise is also a problem - a lot louder than my old 2005 Sportage EX. Handling is very good for a SUV. Steering is a bit weird -the self centering is very biased to the center which causes a torque drag on the wheel.
Best FeaturesLooks. Stereo is good. Mileage is good.
Worst FeaturesSuspension is too hard.
