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


Same old things happening to me as well. Rear window on right will not open. Motor replaced 3 times. New Rear end, Gearbox, clutch replaced 3 times. First when Gearbox went. Driveshaft dropped out while driving. 4X4 does not work. I repalced with standard hubs. ($1600.0o to try to fix orgional) Molding clips let go. Painr bubbling over winshield. Plugs and wires replaced before they should have been. Cup holder both front and back pice of junk.Gas tank neck clogged and now it burps out gas if you try to fill normally.Rear coil spring on passenger side repalced twice.Engine light stays on regardless.Heater motor and switches replaced.Rear sparetire bracket replaced. More o So much fun right...

Best Features

I did get the standard and as such I do get a better performance on the highway.(Iam avg 30 mpg highway)This little truck does have the power that I need. I have had her off roading alot and have never been left stuck nor unable to go where I want to go. The ride is very comfortable regardless
