Drive at highway sppeds before you buy!

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


After the purchase, I took a drive to Tucson, and what a disappointment, the steering wheel vibrated over 70 mph. This broke my heart. Since then I have had the tires replaced three times $300.00 out of my pocket, had the wheels balanced 6 times and been back to the dealer four times. The dealer shop foreman indicated this was a driving characteristic. I do not think so. Now I am working with KIA Consumer Assistance and they have done nothing but given me a hard time. Buyers beware.

Best Features

Braking is outstanding.

Worst Features

Fix the ride please. I paid $21k for this SUV and I expect the ride to be perfect. Also, since the dealer techs blame all ride and performance issues on the ESP system, please fix it and their attitude or remove it and get rid of these stupid technicians. Thank you.
