1998 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV 4WD


The worst car I have ever owned.
Consistantly one problem after
another, each time I would give it the
benefit of the doubt believing that this
was the last problem, it never was. I
have spent thousands of dollars in
repairs and have had horrible
experiences with the Kia dealership.
No one else is familiar with Kia's so
they all told me to go to the Kia
dealers plus I could still get a
warrenty out of it, that never
happened once. I'm happy to tell
anyone to not even consider this
brand. I've had it for 1 year and I'm
selling it now and have lost half my
value, big waste of money!!!!

Best Features

Auto car start- that had nothing to do with the Kia itself.

Worst Features

Everything- transmission, brakes, muffler, starter (all things I replaced) Where is your quality?
