2011 Kia Sportage Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Sportage
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
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.
Kia Sportage 2011- reliable family car.
Car is very durable. I performed well through all seasons. However during winter months the car would lose traction easily. Size matters. For my family of 4 it was a decent sized midsize SUV. Foot space for both the front and back rows are fairly spacious. Now a family of 5 we will be searching for a bigger car. Kia has always been my go to make for cars. The repairs are not done as easily as other car makes but it has always been reliable. I was attracted to this car because of how compact yet spacious it is. It sits high like a SUV but is a perfect size for someone small like me (5'2").
Reliable, spacious, and cute as a bug's ear
My Kia Sportage is comfortable, reliable, and gets pretty awesome gas mileage. I have never had to worry about it, and I drive a 100 mile round trip commute every day. Does great in snow, and the AWD can kick in automatically if it senses the traction is a little off; it has saved me in the rain a few times. Any passengers in the backseat have always been surprised by the amount of leg room without compromising the depth of the seat and it has great space in the way back too. Overall, it was a great purchase and I'm very happy with this car.
My Kia Sportage is the best car I have ever owned!
Kia is a very reliable and affordable car. Lots of upgrades are standard. Double sunroofs, power seats, power side mirrors, AWD, heated front seats, GPS, satellite radio, rear view camera and more. My vehicle has never had any mechanical issues. I have only taken it in for regular maintenance, oil changes, and yearly inspections. It was used for the last 8 years commuting in the Washington dc area, which is the worst traffic on vehicles wear and tear. Yet my Kia Sportage is still beautiful and running great!
I love that the windows have power lock for the back seats.
It has a wonderful back up camera which really comes in handy when you have children and /or pregnant! The seats are very comfortable and the back seat is very roomy. The back latch is very easy to open and has a plastic pad over the carpet just in case you want to take the dogs for a ride. The front seats are very spacious. You can control the radio at the touch of your fingers on the steering wheel. It has Audio hook up to your phone. You can make personal calls through the speaker system.
This is the most reliable vehicle i have owned. it gets decent gas mileage, could be better, but not bad at all. it makes me feel safe.
in 2011 there was a recall that kia let me know about and it was free of charge to get fixed. then in 2016 or 2017 there was another recall and again i got a letter, nothing bad was wrong at all and kia let me know what needed to be done and free of charge. they have amazing customer service and i would highly recommend them to all my family and friends. the only downside is that the front seats aren't too comfortable if you will be driving for 3 or more hours at once
Gas great on highway decent in city but tank is small so plan on filling up more.
I love the space on the inside. It looks sleek and a little cramped from outside. But on the inside there is a ton of room. The all wheel drive is great and the one time I needs to the four wheel drive worked like a charm. Personally I am not a fan of backup cameras but it does Its job and has helped to make sure my kids are not around when I leave the house. My kids really love the Sirius radio to and the fact it allows them to listen to all types of music.
2011 Kia Sportage: a vehicle capable of taking on anything.
Overall performance is great! Very reliable. I live in Colorado and I have always felt very confident driving it in the snow. My particular vehicle has automatic traction control that kicks in as needed. It also does very well on any kind terrain. The cargo area is s very decent size. My only desire is to have a roomier back seat and back seats capable of folding down completely flat.
Shortage is a Great value! Affordable, stylish, reliable
Overall, I love my vehicle, it's very reliable and I've only had to fix things due to regular wear and tear. Feels safe and gets great mileage. I don't like blind spots in this vehicle, they are epic, I am constantly having to be concerned that someone or a vehicle is lurking in the Blindspot due to oversize mirrors. It's a very poor design
