"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."
"I love my 2006 Kia Sportage! It is the third car that I have owned and the most reliable car that I have ever purchased.
I have only had to take it in for oil changes and to have the brake pads replaced. Other than that, at just over 50K it has been running like a champ. I would definitely recommend this car to someone who is looking for a value purchase that still feels and looks like a very nice ride.
My only complaint is that it is a bit noisy when accelerating. And, the rear windshield wiper can get mangled in the car wash.
A big bonus is that this car has actually increased in market value since I purchased it!! Kia has come a long way!"
