we bought the Sportage that the on the lot Salesmen drove as a demo. The car had 40,000 miles from teat drives! or so the "under" salesman told us.The guy who "sealed the deal" said the last guy on the lot usually took it home so the 5 salesmen would end up drawing straws to take it home on a Friday. owner of lot found out and was making them sell it. All the guys loved it! 20 plus years, so do I! My complaints: 1) Very poor air conditioner. 2) Won't get out of it's own way!! I don't do much HWY driving so I'm good, But living in FL, cold air would have been a great thing to have! No real issues with engine. or tranny. I would buy it again!!!


Just shy of excellent!

Visibility and handling are great as is the cargo area. I knew, when I bought it that it was not a sports car so I don't treat it like one. Mine is a little high on the suspension, but driving, professionally, for 30 yrs, I understand the machine and hazards, therein. In short: it is, exactly, what I expected. No complaints, whatsoever.


A real solid Junker

I'd say it's a great first car for someone who just got their license. Great fuel economy. Excellent visibility. Handling is way too soft for someone to even be willing to try making a turn above 10 mph, and its actually quite a robust car despite lacking performance. I've driven mine every day for a year now and the only thing I've done to it is change out the brakes. But I must say that the stock tires suck; change those if you don't want to hydroplane at 35 mph.
