Reliable. Decent gas mileage. Spacious. All in all wonderful.

2008 Kia Sportage LX Sport

Before my Kia Sportage, I drove a low sitting car. I much prefer the Sportage. It is spacious not only when it comes to seating space, but also trunk space as well. It got about 25, maybe a little more, miles to the gallon which is pretty decent for a smaller SUV. I have had little to no issues with the vehicle since I purchased it 2+ years ago. The interior is pleasant to the eye and comfortable. The A/C is a dream as well. It's easily the most reliable vehicle I have purchased to this day. I don't think there's anything I don't love about it. The factory radio is a little outdated, even for the car's time, but that's such a trivial feature and it can be replaced with something more up to date. All in all it is a very wonderful car.

Not a comfortable ride. I do not recommend a Kia Sportage to drive.

2008 Kia Sportage LX Sport

I do not own this vehicle. But I drive it everyday. It rides rough. Very bumpy. Like it does not have very good shocks or just made that way. I wouldn't buy one. I would rather drive a minivan. Smoother ride. I just would not buy a Kia. If I were buying one for myself after driving a Sportage on a daily basis and long distance. Not at all a comfortable ride. Even sitting in the seats give you a backache on long distance trips.

Awesome transfer from car to SUV.

2008 Kia Sportage LX Sport

This vehicle exceeds all my expectations. It is very comfortable and gives that feeling of sitting up high that most people look for in a SUV, it is not too big and not too small. It is the perfect car for parents who are ready to transfer from a car to SUV. My Sportage has been very reliable in traveling, I have been to many states with it and have made it every single time with no issues.

I can program the radio stations I listen to the most.

2008 Kia Sportage LX Sport

I think Kia Sportage is a good reliable car. Although I had my car for 10 years my CD player no longer works. I think there should be no reason while the CD player shouldn't be working. Other than that I think my car runs just fine. In the 10 years I have my car I have not have any major problems.

I love it the room inside is great

2008 Kia Sportage LX Sport

I love my Sportage I have been driving it for eleven years, It has four wheel drive and is great in the snow. I have used it for every vacation trip, it is wonderful, I would buy another but they changed the appearance. But WILL PROBABLY STILL BUY ANOTHER ONE
