1998 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV


I have had my Sportage for 6 years
now, and despite one problem in the
first year that they had trouble pinning
down, I have had no major issues
with my SUV. KIA gave me an
extended warranty after the initial
problem. The car rides great and fuel
economy is the same as similar
models. The factory CD player has
lots of great features, and interior is
very comfortable and user friendly.
The styling caught a lot of eyes and
there was quite a bit of interest in the
car when I first got it. Plenty of cargo
room, and headroom.

Best Features

Nice sound system, cup holder IN the dash (no reaching to the side) gas milage, so far quite reliable.

Worst Features

Cruise control and intermitent wipers should have been standard. Louder roadnoise that others I have driven in. Rear wheel drive.
