I own 4 Kias now.

I own 4 Kias now. I traded two Kias (189K and 150K) in for newer models. Say what you want, these are great cars (except the Seltos, its just dumb). You get way more for the money than in other vehicles. Some have issues, but all were resolved quickly with Kia. (Even their stupid choice to have no theft protection on some older models) Don't listen to the internet "experts", these are nice cars, well worth the price and nice to drive.

More unreliable than my uncle

Everyone who buys a Kia is a weirdo. Bought one as a beater to see what was behind the ugliness and why so many people loved them and found out that there is nothing but unreliability. I wish everyone would know that Kia is a Korean car brand and is very cheap and unreliable. Don't listen to all the other reviews, as a mechanic, I see Kias with every problem imaginiable.

BlackTieSportageAWD

2018 Kia Sportage EX AWD with Appearance PKG. Smooth right height fun driving vehicle! Bought this used 1.5yrs ago and It drives super quiet and smooth. I changed up the front projector lights to white bright LEDs and I get tons of compliments on its looks. People love my exterior and love the inside room and layout. Gas miles at 18mpg city and 23hwy. Not awesome but driving this car is awesome! When you buy this vehicle you have to get the All Wheel Drive. It's a must!! Skip out on the turbo.

Great Car

I have enjoyed my kia sportage. It is reliable, and I love the heated front seats. I also like the fact that the heat can be controlled on the driver side and the front passenger side independently. It has great space in the front and back. It has a backup camera, which is a great safety feature. You can turn the awd off and on. This helps with gas mileage. I do recommend that you use a good grade of regular gas to increase gas mileage. I have found that Shell, ExxonMobil, and Costco do well in my Kia sportage. My only complaint is that the gas mileage could be a little better. However, if you use quality gas, you can better gas mileage. Overall, l would recommend the Kia Sportage.

A very reliable car I leased.

This car met all my needs for commuting back and forth to work. I was leasing a Sportage ex good looking awd car. It had all the special features but a hard ride with the 18 low profile tires!

It is just what I was looking for, so comfortable

I needed a vehicle that was just the right height for my bad back and knees. I’m handicapped so it was very important in my purchase of a vehicle. Love my new Sportage

quiet, roomy, great mileage

The Sportage is the Rondo re-worked, and we still own a Rondo, which runs great and has over 400,000 miles on it! Hoping the Sportage does as well. It's so similar to the Rondo, and quieter. Loving it.

Bad Dealership in my opinion

Didn't think I'd have to pay extra for bad accessories after signing on the line. Had less than a month still finding problems, can't charge phone

Smooth ride and driving, lots of extra options

Fairly priced and everything we were wanting as far as options. Love all the new safety features and plenty Of room to transport my kayak!

Great to Drive!

This vehicle is exactly what I was looking for inside and outside and is a joy to drive. I receive many compliments already and at least two of my friends have mentioned that they would love to own one. And I make sure I let them know my experience at Volkswagen Moon. My total experience with this KIA Sportage has been awesome and I know it will continue to get better. I really love this SUV!
