What a pile...

2001 Kia Sportage EX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is a pile of junk. I have had to fix ignition coils, replace sparks plugs(x4), air conditioning doesn't work, heat only works on the highest or lowest setting, thermostat (x2), timing belt, other belts, battery, starter, alternator, catalyc converter, entire exhaust, transmission, and the fan clutch. The 4WD doesn't work, and I haven't been able to find a mechanic that will touch it. I have had 3 out of the 4 doors break so that they either won't open from inside or out, and the windows on all 4 doors have needed to be fixed at one time or another because they wouldn't open or shut. 2 of the seatbelts are broken and cant be used. Cupholders, paint, ALL JUNK! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!
