"I've bought a 2006 EX new. It's been the most reliable vechile I've ever owned. Not a single problem in over 5 years. The only drawbacks are the V6 isn't economical, I average 18 mpg in mostly city driving. And for a V6 the acceleration isn't that strong. On the plus side the AWD has come in handy at times. It has handled with ease some driving conditions that have left other vehicles in the ditch."
"So far we have liked our little sportage. It was a step up from what we had before. We have had some trouble with it, but the warranty has always covered whatevery has went wrong. This is really where the value of a Kia is, in the extended warranty. You just don't find many cars with a 60,000 bumper to bumper warranty. Rides a little rough, and mine didn't come with the keyless entry (this should have been standard), but other than that a great little SUV"
"I have over 90,000 and have only had to do basic maintenance and anything else that needed to be done was covered by by warantee. I blow a lot of lights and I have an airbag sensor go bad that's not covered but she still starts every day and I've never had a vehicle this long that I still liked."
