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


It is just "plain fun" to drive my 2012 Kia Sportage.
I've had it for about 2 months and have enjoyed everything about it, including the gas mileage (avg = 26, interstate = 29).
I will always love and keep my GMC Z71 for the heavy work, but at 13 mpg it had to move over for the Sportage for day-to-day driving.
I like the way the Sportage holds the road, feels "in-control" & a little sporty.
I've tried the all-wheel-drive out on our Florida beach sand and it performed well (I don't recommend going 4-wheeling in the mud, but you can take it off the Hwy for normal activities without worry of getting stuck).
Great value for the dollar - it's a solid & fun ride!
