2005 Kia Sportage EX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Traded in 2003 Toyota Tundra (awful mileage and impractical). Was wife's dream vehicle but common sense won out. I had driven Tucson and liked it but we both went to drive the Kia. Gearing made it feel sportier and interior is beautiful. Wife liked well enough to buy on the spot. Sportage is fun to drive, luxurious, practical, roomy. The value is unbelievable as Kia has so many nice features and they are done up in a great package. 6 CD changer is awesome and black leather interior with heated seats is a great place to spend time. Mix of freeway and in town getting us about 22 mpg. Cannot believe others would purchase mundane CR-V or RAV4 and spend much more to end up with much less. Go Kia!

Best Features

Interior design. Height adjustable armrest. 6 CD changer.

Worst Features

5 speed automatic would improve performance and mileage but would probably drive the price up as well.
