2005 Kia Sportage LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


The only thing I don't love about my new Sportage is the lack of pep. I test drove a RAV-4 4 cylinder with 53,000 miles on it before the Sportage. I liked both but I had a hard time letting go of the zippiness of the RAV-4. My dealer said Toyota had a much more advanced 4 cylinder motor than Kia. Well I wish Kia would figure out how to do it. BUT, the 4 cylinder is still peppy enough for me. I drive on the highway everyday back and forth to work and I don't have any trouble with passing if I want to. I absolutely LOVE the smooth ride, and lack of rattles. My mother's Explorer feels like a jalopy after riding in my Sportage. I don't like to ride in anyone else's cars now. Kia did a great job.

Tinted windows, cargo space, folding seats, stereo, GREAT A/C!, roomy, great price and warranty.
