Will never buy another Kia...Ever!
By Kia-Hater on


1999 Kia Sportage 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought this car with 71k miles thinking the low miles for 10 year old car would be a good thing. The mileage makes no difference when the car itself is such a lemon. Kia engineered the Sportage to have absolutely no pep, no style, cannot make it through 4 inches of snow even with studded snow tires, and gets bad gas mileage. There is no redeeming quality that compensates its weaknesses. I would trade horsepower for gas mileage or for getting through snow. I've owned little cars that handled and went through snow with no problem. It's ridiculous this 4WDR SUV wont go up a small hill on a dirt road with studded snows. I absolutely HATE this car so much that I will never buy another Kia.
