It's a sporty car that has been reliable. Having a backup camera and GPS is a plus

The style is nice, I like sporty looking cars. the gas mileage is okay - it could be better. The original tires are not good tires for the snow so I had to buy winter tires. I've had to replace all the shocks, I'm not sure why they went bad. I have had issues with the push start. When I told the dealer they just said bring it in when it does that - right how can you do that if it doesn't start. There was a recall on the vehicle and it seems to have fixed it. I love the camera and gps in it. My suv came with a spoiler on it, and when I saw there was a crack in it, Maguire's the dealer refused to replace it.It's not a real smooth ride, or a pick up and go vehicle, but you won't know the difference if you have not had a luxury car before. I like the seat warmer and the electric driver seat. It has a sunroof which is nice. Overall it's been a pretty reliable car. I have 61,000 miles on mine and no major issues. I did have to replace the battery, but it was 7 years old. I just couldn't handle the cold weather here in NY

Great vehicle! Would get another.

There isn't much that I dislike about my Kia Sportage. The first thing that comes to mind, is that the tilt steering doesn't tilt enough for me. Another, is the legroom in the back, but as I will never be in the back, it's a moot point. One of the first things that I liked about this vehicle was the way it looks. This SUV does have a nice sporty look to it and the size is smaller than a standard SUV but that works for me. What I like most is it's turning radius. It has some nice features; heated seats and side mirrors, the back hatch is dual: both window and door open, it has a rear wiper, lots of cup holders both in front and back, great sound system, and it's a quiet ride. It is one of the best vehicles that I've owned and I would buy another.

Overall reliable Kia for the safety of my son and family!

My car has been pretty dependable except for the last few years in the summer my gear shift would not switch out of park, and it would happen only in winter. I took my car to a Kia dealership and they couldn't figure it out. So in dealt with it as eventually the car would switch out of gear- and there would be the traction control light that would come on. After this last summer I almost had it until a friend who is car savvy googled the problem and found the solution, which was a small cheap piece that went behind my brakes that was messed up causing my car to act the way it was. Now, I am happy that my car is reliable and drivable without having to worry.
