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


Bought this car brand new with 87 kilometers on it. Right off the bat the stereo didn't work right. Lost reception in the city all the time. Dealership replaced stereo, didn't fix it. Replaced wiring, didn't fix it. Replaced antenna, didn't fix it. Installed an aftermarket FM Modulator, didn't fix it. They hacked up my dashboard with their tools. 8 months later, countless calls to Kia Canada. Nothing has been fixed. The car hasn't started 5 times since I bought it brand new. The hinges on the back liftgate began to degrade and caused rust streaks down my back window. When fixing this issue, the dealership chipped two pieces off of the roof of my car. Now I need to have the roof repainted.

Best Features

Fog lights, comfortable seats, easy flat folding seats.

Worst Features

Improve stereos, improve dealership and Kia Canada's "bed side manner", fix car. The car is a dud and I have had nothing done for me. I would NEVER suggest anyone buy a Kia, and I will never buy one again. I will be trying to trade this piece of junk in as soon as possible!
