Pretty good vehicle, but I wouldn't buy another Kia.
I bought the vehicle used and it had multiple problems within the first few months of buying it. The most major problem was the big main pulley that is located at the front of the engine literally fell off. Fortunately, I did not wreck the car when it lost power-steering. Kia's warranty did not cover the expensive repair because they said that the main pulley was not part of the drivetrain. I had problems with the windshield wipers freezing and not working when I was driving in freezing rain and snow. Once the problems were ironed out it has been a good car. My favorite thing about it is the seat height is really easy for me to enter and exit the car. It is the worst car I have ever driven for having the windshield fog up. The heat and air are very good.. This Kia Sportage gets about 20 mpg, which I think is pretty poor mileage for that small a vehicle. I find the seats comfortable, but it hurts my husband's hips and back to ride in it especially if he is driving. My final thoughts, in general I have had good service from this vehicle and have 150,000 miles on it, but I would not buy another Kia.
