Sportage EX 4x4 Time to let go of it.
By jkwh50a on


1997 Kia Sportage EX 4dr SUV 4WD


I purchased this Kia new in 1997,
except for the Check Engine light which
came on all the time during the first 3-
4 years, I have not had any major
problems. I currently have 107,000
miles on it and it still starts and
runs good every day. Just oil changes
every 5,000 miles and a front gear
clutch at 59,000, covered by warrantee.
I am now in the market for a new car
and am considering KIA again. I feel I
got my moneys worth out of this car. I
did also replace the front windshield
glass 3 times due to stones, maybe the
Kia glass is too soft I dont know.

Best Features

Ride, starts every day, runs good.
