2011 Kia Sportage Expert Review
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").
