3 months, and it's dead
By Flintlock on


1997 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV


I bought the car used to replace my Geo Metro. Paid $1400 for it, thought it was a great deal. It had low miles for a reason. Drove it 1 month and had to replace the fuel pump, major ordeal. Ran for two more months, stalling shaking, bad fuel economy. Now the timing belt broke. I'll fix it, sell it, and drive my Saturn I had to buy because this Kia is such a piece of junk.

My girlfriend thinks it's cute.
