"In about a year I have put around 30,000 miles on this car and I love it to death! This car had great stock sound which is good for any teen wanting impress and rock out. The driving dynamics are great too, I used to own a 2000 jeep Cherokee and with my Kia I can stop on a dime an turn like nobodys business. There have been s couple situations where in my jeep I would have been in a heap of trouble. It rides smooth and quiet and gets great average gas mileage for any car this size. I wouldn't give this car up for anything other than a really nice car with a really low sticker price, I will probably be driving this thing til the wheels fall off. The only thing I have to say about this is car negatively I that the trunk space is lacking where I prefer to have a vehicle that can haul like a pickup truck but then again that my personal opinion"
Cons: "Still looking for a negative worth commenting on."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I bought a black cherry AWD LX and have 4k miles with absolutly no issues. This is my second KIA. My first was an 08 Optima and at 110K it never saw the inside of the dealer for any warranty work. Hoping this Sportage is as good of a vehicle. The Sportage has great value and quality.
I added an after market leather interior package with heated seats at a cost far below what a leather Sportage would cost or getting it done at the dealership.
The Sportage turns a lot of heads. Love the vehicle!!!"
"My wife was in an accident and totaled the vehicle. She walked away. We bought another (same make/model/year) to replace it. It is much too new to make any realistic comments regarding its reliability, but it is relatively easy to drive, good mileage on the highway, and the ride is comfortable."
