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


After owning a Jeep Liberty, and test driving the Forester and the Sante Fe, I found the Sportage a real pleaser. It's new sleak design and roomier interior made this a must buy purchase for me. The main selling point for me was that it has all the features of a SUV but drives like a sedan. I've only had this vehicle less than two weeks but family members and friends and friends were quite impressed with thisd car. KIA has probably the best warranty aroung today. I am hoping I amjust as pleased a year from now as I am today.

Best Features

The engine of this vehicle is so quiet that when I start up the car I hesitate not knowing if the car has really started. The interior is beautiful and comfortable. The stereo system is magnificent. The overll appearance of the car is a sleek, stylish and a real eye catcher.

Worst Features

The only downside is the car doesn't automatically lock when you first start to drive. This must be done manually./
