"My Kia 2009 Kia Sportage is the best car I've ever owned......my 9th new car since beginning to drive 45 years ago. The dealer I bought it from has been great and I've had absolutely no problems with it for six years now. It's 4 WD and 6 cylinders and it's gotten through feet of upstate NY snow like a champ......it has fabulous passing ability. Can't think of one thing I haven't liked about it."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I love the reliability of this car! In 99,500 miles, I have only had to replace engine filters and oil. Because I am older and must rely on myself, I really appreciate the confidence that I have, knowing that my car will get me wherever I need to go. Yesterday we had severe hail and my car took quite a hit. Even though it is a 2007 with significant mileage, I will have it repaired, as I plan to drive it until one of us gives out (and it may be me before the car!) I rave about it all the time. You can fold down the back seat and load a "truck-load"(literally)of stuff. I was disappointed to see that Kia changed the design of the new Sportage, as I like the flexibility of this model. I would absolutely recommend this car (and do, all the time)."

"I bought this vehicle in 2011 with only 10K on it and have loved driving it ever since. It has plenty of room and handles great in the snow. I plan on owning several more Kia's in the coming years and would highly recommend these cars to anyone!!"

"This is the best car I have ever owned. At 131,000 miles I have had a brake job, changed tires and replaced the timing belt/chain twice. I keep looking at new cars and ask myself why? This car has great visibility with a nice big rear window. Performs great in the rain and snow with the 4WD. I am older and love not having to crawl down into a car. Great hauling capacity for vacations. Only con is the 20-24 mpg. I wish I could buy this exact car New today with better mileage."
