The automatic four wheel drive, I feel very safe driving it in winter conditions

2005 Kia Sportage LX Sport

I pretty much love my Kia Sportage, mainly because their has been one owner before me and they kept the vehicle in tip top shape and did regular maintenance as it should. I would like to upgrade with the same vehicle eventually because of its reliability and safety and mainly because I'm comfortable driving it.
