Reviews For Kia Sportage
Review of a 2006 Kia Sportage
The seats are leather but the leather is not a solid sheet. It is a hole punch design. This hole punch design tends to act like perforations and the leather tears easily on the seat. The gas mileage is also not nearly as good as I had expected a Kia to be. It gets less than 20 highway miles. I am also not impressed with the V-6. I have driven several friends cars that are only 4 cylinder that have more pick up and acceleration than my car with the V-6. I do enjoy the room inside the vehicle. It is small enough to park relatively easily but yet has more than enough space to hold 3 adults across the back seat. I have also put the back seats down and used the space to haul many items such as tables, dressers, mulch, timber etc and it has sufficient room for what I need.
Kia Sportage for the growing active family.
The Kia Sportage is a great family sized vehicle. The hatchback provides easy access and plenty of space for groceries and other family needs. The backseat area has plenty of legroom, even for adults. The ability to drop into 4 wheel drive with ease is a great feature. Some of the cost in repairs for the Kia can be more costly than other vehicles in its model. The headlights are plastic covered so be prepared to have them serviced yearly to keep them clear. You have to make sure when the oil is changed that a new oil plug is placed or you will have oil leak issues. But overall, i would recommend the Kia Sportage as a great vehicle option for the average growing family.
Black exterior, grey interior. SUV shape and has a ton of room for road trips.
The ac is not the best during the summer here in phoenix. It is okay throughout the rest of the year, though. It is a very smooth driving car. They will last you for a lifetime, mine is on its last 199k miles, and still drives good. It does not go very fast at all, and takes a while to finally pick up speed. All of the door handles broke literally the same week, and I had to replace all including the whole driver’s door. Speakers could definitely have better quality. Also it is a gas eater.
The Kia Sportage I own has served me well requiring only regular expenses.
It is reliable and comfortable to me. I dislike that there is only one CD at a time that it holds, wish it had a back up camera and other luxuries. It is already starting to rust really bad. It does not have a high resale value. The gas mileage is average but it does better than the Jeep liberty that I had before this. It sits lower to the ground than most SUVs, but that is both a positive and negative. Less chance of roll over but more splashing from other cars.
Roomier than expected and reliable.
I love my Kia Sportage. It has been mostly reliable although after 12 years I have had to replace struts and there were wiring issues that recently appeared. The Sportage is cozy like a car but sits higher like a SUV. There is a lot of hauling space since even the front passenger seat folds all the way down. The car does seem to fog up a lot more than our other cars and there has been a problem with the esc light.
Good for basic car, with good gas mileage.
I purchased my car used, it is a very comfortable car, nice design. Some problems I have faced with the car are that the air conditioning and heating do not always blow air very hard. It also makes screeching sounds when I have to make sharper turns. Additionally, the steering wheel sometimes does not want to turn. Overall, this car is a great basic car and gets great gas mileage.
Perfect for all kinds of lifestyle.
I love my Kia Sportage. It is reliable, and most repairs that I have ever needed were simple and cost efficient. It is been resilient to all weather types, such as rain and snow, it is cost effective when it comes to fuel efficiency and upkeep such as needing my oil changed or anything of the like. Its spacious but not overly large and runs smoothly regardless the length of drive.
Overall, my vehicle experience with my Kia has been very enjoyable.
I have had my Kia Sportage for a year, and it has been performing great. In terms of comfort, there is a lot of room in both the front and back of the car. With the option to fold down the back seats, I have even more room. Since the year I've had my car, I have not ran into any problems. The car runs great, does not take too much gas, and is very low maintenance.
The 2006 Kia Sportage is a great dependable vehicle to buy.
overall a good car for someone with very few children. I bought the car in 2006 I have not had any problems until recently starter, fuel filter and pump. After fixing them minor problems. The vehicle is very dependable my kids enjoy the sunroof. Good car foe teen ages to learn to drive in. Cheap on gas I get about 325 miles to a tank around town.
Oil change. . Check fluids make sure battery is. Charged at all times.
My vehicle is easy on gas gets good mileage runs very smoothly when it has its regular oil change is very easy to handle as an SUV also I would like to note that my vehicle never stalls out nor do the gears in the transmission slip as long as its fluids are kept up and regularly checked for it appears to be the life of the vehicle.
