Kia Sportage still going strong after 11 years.

The Sportage is a comfortable vehicle and has a nice amount of cargo space. It gets good gas mileage and handled fairly well on the highway. Our main complaint has been with the way it handles on snow & ice. We expected better traction for an SUV. The original tires were good but once we had to replace them, it was hard to find a set that had good winter drivability. The body has held up well even though we live in the Midwest and frequently drive in areas that use road salt in the winter. The vehicle currently has just over 160, 000 miles and is still going strong.

Kia Sportage 2007 great car.

It is great in the snow handles nicely mine is all wheel drive and I will never go back to a two wheel drive vehicle I have driven my car a lot and enjoy it greatly I love the cruise control I also have not had to put any money into repairs just the normal inspection once a year it still has factory tires that are just now dew for replacement and that surprises me that I got 105,000 miles out of them factory parts all around it has been a great vehicle!

That it has enough air bags to make you feel safe when driving

I have a Kia Sportage which is roomy. I can carry 5 people comfortably. I also use my car to carry home my home supplies. Most fit right in with the back seat down, but sometimes I have to leave the back window open. I also use my car to take my dogs to the vets. There is plenty of room for them when traveling. I feel about the gas mileage is reasonable for the size of suv I have. It is a safe car with quite a few airbags.

Kia Sportage are very reliable and dependable cars.

Basic car problems occasionally- nothing out of the usual. Reliability 100% to and from. Comfort is great, heated seats, ac/heat works great, sunroof/moonroof, leather seats, lots of storage, and other little features. The car is dependable, and it looks great inside and out. Looks more expensive than what I payed for it. I would recommend this car and I will perhaps be purchasing another Kia Sportage in my upcoming years.

- Maddie L

Totally reliable. Never a breakdown.

Has been the most reliable car we have ever owned. Have only had to have had routine work done on it. In 11 years we have only had to replace tires twice, brakes once. When it was still under warranty I would drive 80 miles each way for service because we bought it there and the customer service was always first rate. My husband and I don't have a single complaint about our Kia. Our next vehicle will be another Kia.

My Kia Sportage, my faithful friend who takes a licking and still keeps ticking.

I really love. My Kia it has been one of the most reliable vehicle I ever had it has over 160 thousand miles and with regularly oil changes and normal upkeep, it's been a great friend. Although I am not the best driver it has a few dings cracks and dents, but it does not matter to me, it is fun to drive. I certainly would love to own the sx turbo. A little too rich for me. Some day.

Why I LOVE my 2007 Kia Sportage

I absolutely LOVE my Kia. I bought it used. It only had 74,000 miles! I didn't have an air conditioner, but great heat! It has driven like a dream since I got it 2 years ago. Very comfortable and roomy. The kids love it too! Has automatic windows and locks, drop down sunglass holder. The seats in back Food down for more room and lay back a little for sleepy riders!😉

- Kelly M

Perfect everyday vehicle.

The only problems I have with my vehicle is having to repair after normal wear and tear. It is a perfect vehicle to be able to go out and hit dirt roads but still gets good gas mileage. It is the perfect size, not too big not too small. I live out of town and never have to worry if I can make it home when I am in town or if it can make long trips. It is very reliable.

- Rebekah R

Good car but would like a bit more power.

I really like driving my Kia Sportage. It is good on gas, averaging around 20 mpg around town. I wish it had a bit more power on hills, but it does ok. I am never worried it will not make it up a hill. I bought it used and it had only had a couple problems, but they were easily fixed. The parts I replaced were air intake sensors and they were original to the car.

- Deb H

The Kia Sportage is a great car to learn to drive.

The Kia Sportage is a reliable car with good gas mileage and comfort. The fabric of the seats is great because it does not get hot but is harder to clean. My model is an automatic and it was easy to learn on and continue to drive. The belts were a pain, and we had to replace them multiple times. We put in a new stereo but the original was simple and usable.

- Jordan M

KIA Sportage 4WD SUV is what I own and for the most part I love her !

I bought my KIA used and I have had absolutely no problems with her at all. She is a little slow getting up to 65 but has a little spunk getting up to 120. I haven't had her higher than that. She's super light and with high winds and gusts she gets pushed and pulled a lit when I'm on the road. It can be super scary on the rain and snow and ice.

- Sheila G

I love the look of the body and the space inside has enough leg room for comfort.

My Kia Sportage is a nice midsize SUV that is good on gas, it's a four cylinder so it doesn't have a fast pickup. I live in New England and its good in the snow. Maintenance is easy for my husband. Its reliable and a good size for a family of 4. The back seats fold forward and makes lots of space, I bought a 'bed in a box' and it fit perfectly.

- Rob B

Has a great warranty with it. . Runs great. Gets good gas mileage. Love it.

Absolutely love my Kia. Has great gas mileage. Has 4 wheel drive. Size is perfect not too big or small. Has great storage space. Handles well for curvy roads. Does not have all the bells and whistle of a newer car but it runs every day. Will use it till it is dead. . I even think when it is time to get a new car this will be one of my choices.

- Hanson M

Good vehicle, great value.

Our Kia Sportage has 260,000 miles on it. The motor is in good shape and we have only had to replace the transmission at 150,000 miles. It gets relatively good gas mileage and it has been a good smooth comfortable ride. When we were ready to buy another vehicle, we looked specifically for another Kia because of the performance of this one.

- James B

Wonderful car, love it. Definitely will buy again.

I love this car it fits me good, rides nice and except for normal maintenance haven't had any problems with it at all. If anything were to happen to this I will definitely buy another one again. I have taken this on several long distance trips and it rode wonderful, had no problems at all with it and there was plenty of legroom,

- melissa P

Pretty good for how old it is.

The car often revs up very loud and sometimes the car will think that the key is still in the ignition even when it has been taken out. The seats are pretty comfortable and have held up very nicely for the amount of people that have been in my car but the steering wheel will often get sticky and melt when it gets too hot.

- Audrey H

The perfect family sports utility vehicle.

I love our Sportage for a family car. We have 2 children still in car seats and the backseat has ample room for both seats and we can still grocery shop. It's a workhorse of a car, the seats are comfortable and comfortably fit my well over 6 foot tall, 250 lb. husband. I love opening the sunroof on a nice day.

- Jessica B

My car has step rails and tinted windows.

I like that I have full view while driving. Being of short stature that is a plus for me. It is easy to maneuver and it has a great mileage. I have had some problems with the power steering. Its belt broke from wear and tear. Other than that, just regular maintenance like oil change and new brakes.

- Helen P

It has heated rear view mirrors. It is a v6 manual.

It is a compact and reliable car to get around town. I like that it has a moonroof and leather seats. It is a gas guzzler but it does take you to places. It is spacious and you can put down the seats. It has room to put extra stuff in the back. It is easy to park and easy to do extra errands in.

- Malee V

Love my 2007 Kia Sportage would definitely buy it again.

Have had no problems at all with my Kia. It runs very quiet and smooth. Very roomy and comfortable. Great sound system does great on long trips, good on gas, lots of room in back when shopping, seats go down for more room, would definitely buy a Kia vehicle again also great rates on insurance.

- Joyce S

My vehicle is a Kia Sportage.

I absolutely love my Kia Sportage. I have never had any problems with my Kia. The only things I have ever had to replace are the tires and recently I had to replace the struts, I always take it in for the required maintenance when it is due. I will never purchase anything but a Kia Sportage.

- Joan L

Good car, not a lot of power.

This car gets pretty good gas mileage for it is age. I haven't had too many issues with it over the years. I have tried to do all the required maintenance like oil changes and filter changes on time. My only complaint is that it has no get-up-and-go because it is only a 4 cylinder.

- Jenny B

My sporty, reliable KIA Sportage

I bought my 2007 KIA Sportage last year, and I am very happy with it. For an older vehicle, it has proven to be very reliable. Minor problems include a small rust spot on the rear fender, and the sun visors are broken. Other than that. the KIA has been a smart purchase.

- Eddie A

That the gas mileage is not very good with city driving, but is good with highway

I have always liked the feeling of the drive: smooth but powerful, good handling, comfortable around turns. It has a good sound system and nice and comfortable seats. One thing I don't like is that the check engine light comes on and they can't seem to turn it off well.

- Nick D

Great on gas, overall dependable Kia Sportage.

I enjoy my Kia Sportage because it is great on gas. It is also very reliable. I have driven it across county and back with no problems. These cars can typically run for 300,000 miles as long as they are kept up very well, as far as oil changes and tune ups and such.

- Marissa F

It is been reliable drives good in snow even without four wheel drive.

It is a great SUV although it has went through two starters it is comfortable and very roomy the color is champagne with a hatch back for groceries and a big hidden compartment for maybe tools or extra small stuff seats do fold down for more space for bigger things.

- Shelley B

Most durable car I have ever had.

I have owned it for years and it is held up great and has not broken down on me. It is great in the rain and snow. The parts on this car are inexpensive and easy to get. I like that it is big and the back seats fold down so we can fit a lot of things in there.

- Jackie L

Comfortable . Reliable. And stylish.

Gas mileage is not too good but the car is great! I have made several enhancements since buying it. Such as adding a touch screen radio and auto start. The car has been very reliable and it is very comfortable. With regular maintenance this car is amazing!

- Marianne N

Kia Sportage is a good investment - roomy, smooth, attractive.

My Kia Sportage is a smooth ride. It has a decent amount of power. I like having room for groceries in the back! I have been warned that some of the maintenance will be more expensive than with other cars. Other than that I love my Kia.

- Kathy B

I would encourage all drivers to have an AWD vehicle. This will prepare individuals for inclement weather.

I like that my vehicle is AWD. I like that my vehicle is easy to get into and out. I dislike that my vehicle does not have a good audio system. I dislike that my vehicle does not have a backup camera.

- Denise E

It's a reliable family vehicle that's great for road tripping.

It's spacious enough for our family. It runs well enough to take trips including through the mountains where smaller cars often struggle. It's honestly a good car all around and I have no complaints.

- Tasha S

Sportage is more age than sport.

The only problem I have with this vehicle is the fact that the air conditioner is so quick to go out. Other than that I would give it a 5. 0, if I had a choice I would drive something different.

- Lance S

It's comfortable and drives smoothly, even in rain.

My mom bought this car new, had very little problems with it for the 6 years that she owned it, and now that she's sold it to me and my husband we haven't had any major problems with it either.

- Portia H

It is just a machine to get me safely from point A to point B.

I like that it is comfortable and fits my family well. I also like that it gets decent gas mileage. I do not like that it is getting older and not holding up as well as I had expected it to.

- Nicole D

It is a smooth ride, and gets decent gas mileage.

Very dependable. The seat belts could be locked her, and tend to lock up, instead of move with you. Unfortunately mine is not a four wheel drive. It could use a bit more cargo space.


It gets good gas mileage.

Kia is good car and I love the way it drives and I feel safe with my daughter in it. I love SUV so much and I am working on getting a new one. Maybe even a truck I do not know yet.

- Kayla C

I love my Kia Sportage. I can't see myself getting rid of it. Best little SUV ever

My 2007 Kia Sportage is more of a small SUV than a station wagon. I love it. It's very reliable. It gets 32 mpg which is amazing for an 11 year old car with 219,000 miles on it.

- Tammy C

The esc light can be annoying and was originally problematic.

It is mall and dependable but has plenty of room to carry anything I need. It is completely paid off. It feels like a car but sits up high like an SUV. I enjoy the brown color.

- Kate J

Hard to mess up alignment.

Its roomy. It is just right in size for me. Like the color. It has no fog lights. No tint on windshield or driver and front passenger windows. Wish it had a stronger engine.

- Mark F

It is extremely reliable. I would suggest a Sportage to anyone.

Vehicle has no problems. I have replaced brakes, done oil refills, all of the maintenance myself. Having this car has saved me so much money it is ridiculous. I love my car!

- Aaron A

Family vehicle with great gas mileage

Kia Sportage has great gas mileage and is the perfect size for our family of five. Very dependable vehicle. The only thing I don't like is the seats are very uncomfortable.

- Deana M

My Kia makes me feel safe even on Baltimore Pike in rush hour.

My Kia Sportage is the best car I've ever driven. It looks clunky but is nimble and stops on a dime. It handles sudden flash floods of less than a foot of water with ease.

- Rena S

Big enough to take on family trips with enough leg room for everyone.

Small SUV with a lot of room for car seats. I like that the seats fold down to help haul things. The 6 cylinder has enough horsepower to drive well on the highway.

- Pat B

It is very reliable. Never had any problems with it.

I have had such a good experience with this vehicle. It runs like a dream. Never had any issues with it. Don't really have any complaints that I can think of.

- Erin B

It's a car that isn't expensive and is worth every dime!

I love my Kia. I bought it new and have had very few problems with it! The main problem that batteries don't seem to last long. Other than that, it's great!

- Jill G

The most important thing is it is very comfortable.

I enjoy the roominess of the SUV and also the sportiness of the look. It also has good gas mileage and the price of the vehicle was also very affordable.

- Angie B

It is a great beach car. You can put the seats down and open the hatch.

I really love my car! It has served me well and faithfully for years -- it is just getting a little old and guzzling gas a little more than it used to.

- Jami J

great vehicle at great price

over 200,000 miles and still running strong. Well made vehicle at an affordable price. I have owned it myself for 5 years now with no major issues.

- melody g

Despite it is looks, my Kia Sportage can wiggle around tight spots.

My Kia looks clunky but is nimble and agile. It grips the road during rain as if the road was dry. It is the most reliable car I have ever driven.

- Jean S

The paint is fading off the roof.

It is kinda basic. I wish it had nicer rims but what can you do. The windows are nicely tinted and the ac blows cold even after all these years.

- Mary C

It is a very good reliable automobile it is good for just commuting around town or for long trips

It is a great car haven't had many major problems it's very reliable I've been getting normal oil changes and everything seems to be going fine

Kia Sportage 2007- Spectacular

Overall it has been a good vehicle. The bottom is rusty. Great in the snow. Had some sensory issues not too bad for an 11 year old car.

- kayla p

It has held up well with all the miles on it

I like that I have put a lot of miles on it and have had minimal issues. I don't like the stick shift. I don't like the gas mileage.

- Jason f

Tinted windows and folded back seat.

- Helen M

Low rated towing weight. It's 2000 lbs or less. It's hard to find a camper under that weight.

It's a good dependable SUV. I would buy another Kia.
