Running great! So far, so good.

by from mars hill, nc on September 1, 2017

Good cargo space with rear seats folded down. Good leg room all seats. Great visibility from driver's seat. Good ground clearance over rough terrain.

Most Reliable car I've owned

by from Easton, PA on August 19, 2017

In eleven years and 222,000 miles, no issues. I purchased new and had it serviced by the selling dealer only. Service thought it would go 350,000 but I got rear-ended pushing me into the car ahead....
In eleven years and 222,000 miles, no issues. I purchased new and had it serviced by the selling dealer only. Service thought it would go 350,000 but I got rear-ended pushing me into the car ahead. The insurance would not pay to fix it due to age and mileage. I just purchase a 2006 Kia Spectra 5, 93,000 miles with the insurance money and no out of pocket.

Excellent car, reliability is top notch! Can't recommend enough! This is a great commuter car and I easily get 420 miles in one tank. Very economical!

A dependable car

This is my second Kia and I have had no issues with either one. The most I have done is keep up with the oil changes and filters. I have replaced a headlight or tail light and a new set of tires. The sportage has had one brake job.

Purchased this vehicle used with 120,000 miles. Currently at 145,000 with zero issues. Originally my wifes car, this is the 2006 kia lx 4 cyl FWD. It is cheap to own, economical and very reliable. Other than regular maintenance, the vehicle inside is like new with the only wear being the steering wheel beginning to crack at the top. Only work to the car done was new brakes, rotors, transmission fuild drain &fill (myself) and new tires (tire shop). Other than that, this thing is great! Kia is so great that my wife now drives a 2015 Kia Sorento and love it too!

The Kia Sportage is the best mid sized SUV value on the planet. We have owned this and a CRV and there is hardly any difference between the two in overall appeal. The Kia has a nice V6 vs the CRVs 4 cylinder. Bottom line this is one of the most reliable cars we have ever owned.

We bought our 2WD 6Cyl EX back in Nov. '05 and have been more than pleased with it in all ways. Very reliable, high utility, good comfort and fun to drive. I would like better than our 20 mpg all around, but since we only avg 8,000 miles a year the MPG has not been a big deal. I really don't think we could have made a better choice and expect to keep this vehicle for many more years.

I would recommend the 2006 Kia Sportage EX hands down! It has been the best vehicle I have ever owned! Never needed it to be serviced for anything! My lease just expired and the dealer was going to give me an incredible deal on a new 2008 Sorento. Just bought it yesterday. It will be tough to live up to my 2006 Sportage. I'm really going to miss it! The 2008 Kia Sportage EX is super comfortable, fit me like a glove and made me feel safe driving at high speeds with the automatic stabilizing system. Fun to drive too! Can take it anywhere and off road too! It's a great compact SUV with plenty of room! VERY dependable and a JOY to drive! Stereo system is great, CD/cassette. Power Moonroof too! Love the White with grey plush interior. Whom ever buys my 3yr. old Sportage is absolutely going to LOVE it! Awesome, Dependable, Fun, Great Looking, Great Priced vehicle! I can't say enough about it!!!!!!

2006 better than 2000

I'm a second time Kia owner. My first was the Sephia - very much a piece of garbage. It gave out way too early; the first to go was the catalytic converter....everything followed from there. I'm now a 2006 Kia Sportage owner and I was doubtful at first, but have spoken to quite a few people and they've given this vehicle a thumbs up. I'm not all that crazy about the engine noise at higher speeds, but over all; it's roomy, it's efficient and I think we're gonna become the best of friends.
