REPAIRS ADDING UP!
By OUCH!! on
Vehicle1998 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewI purchased my Sportage two years used- it had 39,000 miles-high. Owned the car 9 years and have only put 52,000 miles on. The dealer services do little to take care of the car-better to find a good independent. At 60,000 miles, it needed front wheel bearings packed,new timing belt,drive belts,& new battery. At 78,000 miles, the radiator overheated; I had replaced the radiator,thermostat,fan clutch,and a cooling system power flush-cost $1200. Car has always had poor, vibrating brakes that I've had repaired numerous times to no avail. The engine leaks oil - I've had this partially fixed twice for $$$ but still leaks. The 4 WD failed some time back but the indicator light says its working.
Best FeaturesFun to drive The exterior/interior has held up well.
Worst FeaturesBetter quality, better service checks that include flushes.
