"Last winter i traveled over 2200 miles to Flordia and back. it rained all the way there. With the electronic stable controll on it did not matter how fast i was going (85) i never slid one bit. It was a very smoth ride all the way down and back."
"I TRADED IN MY 03 KIA SORENTO FOR THE SPORTAGE, I NEEDED BETTER FUEL MILEAGE. I LIKED THE VEHICLE RIGHT FROM THE START, HOWEVER YOU CAN DEFINATELY TELL THE DIFFERENCES. A FRIEND OF MINE HAS AN ESCAPE AND I THINK MY SPORTAGE IS FAR SUPERIOR AND COSTS A LOT LESS. I PURCHASED THE LX WITH A 4 CYL AND FWD AND I REALLY LOVE IT. IT HANDLES WELL, RIDES NICE, RELITIVELY PEPPY FOR A 4 CYL, AND ON THE 1200 MILE TRIP I RECENTLY MADE I GOT 28 MPG. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED. MY WIFE HAS A 98 SEPHIA WITH 226,000 MILES, WHEN WE REPLACE IT WILL BE WITH A SPORTAGE. GREAT VEHICLE, GREAT QUALITY, EXELENT PRICE, AND I HAVE ALWAYS RECIEVED GREAT SERVICE AT THE DEALER WITH MY OTHER KIA'S, ALTHOUGH THE SPORTAGE HAS NEVER BEEN BACK YET."
"I bought the 2006 Sportage with about 18,000 miles. Overall, I love it! My only complaints are the gas mileage and i am hearing a noise. I read that it was normal, but i am having it checked out anyway. I hope it endures the Chicago winters!"
"I was apprehensive about buying a KIA. We have always bought Toyota products. So far it has been a really nice SUV. You get alot for very little money. It is great for your everyday driving with comfort and ease of control. The back seat folds down for hauing most anything. The style is very nice. No mechicanal problems, rides great. I have recommended the Kia Sportage to others looking for a good quality SUV within a reasonable price. Enjoy!"
