Overall the Kia has been a dependable car with some minor issues.

2006 Kia Sportage LX Sport

My Kia was purchased pre owned from a dealership there were no blaring issues at first but a few months after our purchase we noticed the vehicle was having some electrical issues where the inside lights would flash on and off and the door locks would lock and unlock. We've done quite a bit of maintenance work to this vehicle, as far as ride and comfortability goes it is a very smooth riding vehicle and very easy to drive and park. The 4 wheel drive mechanism seems to be going out currently. Overall the car has been decent for the price we paid for it.

Would you buy a Kia new or used?

2006 Kia Sportage LX Sport

My Kia has been very reliable! I bought it used, thinking eventually I would have problems or issues with it, but it has been one of the best cars I have ever owned. It is plenty roomie, has ample storage space, and is very comfortable to ride and drive. It gets pretty good gas mileage, and pulls hills and mountains very well. I would definitely consider buying another Kia, new or used.
