You get what you pay for

Just "Average" - Car is best when mileage is below 50k, after that, beware, parts will start breaking. Shocks\Struts, Door Hinges, Starter, Tie Rods, Steering Rack($4300 w/labor), Air Con Compressor($1,500 w/labor), Serp Belt & Tensioners, Timing Belt etc. Other parts that will probably need replacing soon also - O2 sensors, brakes, spark plugs & ignition coils. From here after 85k mi, the list can go on and on, as the parts get old and need replacing. Just remember KIA's are made cheap, so don't get your expectations too high. In Colorado- 4/20/24


Little Piglett keeps on chugging....

I'm at 274,000 miles...The car engine and transmission are still fine (4cyl). Next week replacing the lower control arms and end links...maybe ball joints too. The only negative is the timing belt services...Costs about $1200...but with the price of new... it's still worth it. Maybe I can get to 400,000 miles?


I would buy one again if I had to but I may never

Bought new in 2007 and have never had a problem. Runs great, very comfortable front and back seats. The color remains in good condition and the interior has held up well. Th With one car used by 2 people and several dogs this car has been used. I am in sales and a mobile Dj who is depending on reliability, good gas milage, and adaptability. The Sportage has all of that and 4WD for snow. It dosen't get better than that.
