2012 Kia Sportage LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


After reading several of the reviews I had to commit on several of your issues ...

I am unable to clean the windshield/dash to stop the reflecting.
On sunny days it's dangerous.
I have tried several high end windshield cleaners and nothing has helped.

Unexplained noise ...
It's been driving me nuts since I bought the vehicle. It rattles even the slightest bump in the road. I think, I figured it out.
The glove box rattles.
I used some heavy paper and jammed it in and it helps.

The interior ... It scratches terrible.
Anything leaves a mark!
I dread the reduced trade in value due to scratches.

Best Features

I do allot of thruway driving. I average between 29-32 mpg. I do not have a heavy foot! Any stopping or idling greatly reduces the mpg. I have owned my Sportage for nine months and have 19,500 miles.

Worst Features

Improve window glare, better quality control for those little noises, and improve the interior!!
