1999 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV


I owned a 1999 Kia Sportage for 18 months until I was hit by a drunk driver two months ago; the car was totaled. I purchased the car with 93,000 miles on it. My thoughts. Although my car was in the shop frequently, I chalked it up to the age of the car. 1.Alternator replaced. 2.Hose replaced leading from gas filler cap to the gas tank. 3.Fan Belts replaced. 4.Tires replaced. 5.Wire replaced under hood leading to starter. 6.A/C duct cleaned twice due to bad smell. 7.Stick shift knob replaced. 8.Electric motors to both rear windows replaced. $300.0 9.Valve cover gasket replaced along with other components $533.00 10.Engine service light was always on; mechanics couldn't fix it

Best Features

The cup holder was very convenient. I read a previous review in which someone complained about liquid spilling when one went over a bump, I don't agree with this statement. I truly believe this person had the top off his/her drink when this occurred, which doesn't make much sense.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage. The mileage was terrible, about 19 miles per gallon.
