2009 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased new in April of 09,21000 miles later no issues. Great small suv. NH winters can be rough, have driven on unplowed roads with 2 feet of snow and had no problems getting through on stock Kumo tires. Solid as the day i bought. MPG is 25-27 city/hwy. The lx 4 cylinder is basic and functional the inside, w/4 cylinder a great commuter car. Excellent Family work horse. Exterior finish is excellent. Looked at the subaru, but sportage was roomier, cant beat the warrenty.


Best Features

4wheel drive, folding rear seats which also recline; tailgate also allows you to only openup the rear window, sirus radio, 5 star crash rating all around, Great warrenty, interior finish is excellent, reasonable gas mileage for a 4wd. Room storage for all your gear.


Worst Features

INterior lights that come on when you remove the key; exterior temp gauge, engine temp gauge, Dash is very plain, arm rest that was more functional, steering wheel controls

2009 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV 4WD (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After owning a Honda, a Toyota and a Mazda, I gave Kia a gry this time. So far, I love everything about this car! The ride is smooth and quiet. The interior is impeccable. The external styling is sporty and attractive. The car handles very well on all types of road conditions and I'm sure the 4WD has saved me from spinning out into a ditch several times already. I love being higher up off the road, and I think this car is a great buy.


Best Features

The interior styling, the road handling.


Worst Features

Haven't thought of any yet.

2009 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bang for the buck. Very impressed with this little SUV. I was impressed SO much that I bought another KIA 6mths later. David Bollen of Jerry Smith Kia is the most professional and honest car salesman I have had the pleasure of doing business with. If you are looking at buying a Kia and are in Washington then go to Burlington and stop by Jerry Smith Kia and talk to this guy. He is a staight shooter.


Best Features

A very impressive car for the size. Don't let the small size fool you she is a wollup packer.


Worst Features

standard bluetooth would be nice.

2009 Kia Sportage EX 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased as Christmas present for wife. Bought the Volcanic Red and that even scored more points. So far we are very happy with purchase and living in Central Illinois we have had the opportunity to drive under all extreme conditions. Sportage passed them all with flying colors. Plenty of room and quite comfortable to drive.


Best Features

Handles well. The luxury package additions are all great additions to have. Whether it is the sound system, the heated seats, leather, or whatever it adds to the greatness of the SUV. Also the cargo space and the ease of lowering the seats is a big plus. Warrenty and safety rating.


Worst Features

Maybe improve the center armrest as others have mentioned.

Review

I've had my 09 Sportage for 9 months and 17000 miles. Still very solid and economical to run. The 4 wheel drive system has been great in NH winters. I'm able to go up some steep hils during snow storms that normally would not be able to navigate. Sportage is very roomy, gas mileage has been consistant around 25-27MPG. The only issue I had was a faulty steering sensor which the dealership fixed right away. The Sportage has been trouble free. Too bad I can't say the same for my civic. Seating is comfortable. Just found out that you can adjust the head rests and the rear seats recline back. Still great value and bery happy with my purchase. This is the perfect comuter vehicle and family car


Best Features

Love the 4 Wheel drive system, back seats fold flat without taking the head rests off. Love the traction control, ESC system, 5 star crash rating, great warranty, and satelite radio


Worst Features

OUtside temp gauge, engine temp gauge, Adjustable arm rest, interior lights that come on when you remove the key, running lights. Would also like the option of plastic body panels
