Top rank vehicle but something bad goes wrong

Love my vehicle but suddenly the sportage started not getting into gear. Engine light came on so took it to the deal. First story was my oil was very low and radiator was too full. Flushed out both and then I got a call that my transmission was out and needed to be replace. This is a 2016 Kia Sportage with 30,000 miles and transmission is out. Because it was under warranty the transmission was replaced but not I only have a 12 month or 12,000 miles warranty.

Coverage on this vehicle is outstanding!!

No problems! This SUV is amazing! We drive in all weather, never once missed work or went off the road, it handle awesome in the wintertime here in Maine, considering a second Kia Sportage!! Love the rearview backup feature! A comfortable ride~ I highly recommend the vehicle to everyone, the over all warranty is 100% upon first buyers and 60 % for second within so many miles and or years whatever comes first! Love this about Kia! They have an excellent deal!

I see it as a good family car. It's spacious and has great add-ons like seat warmers. It's roomy and reliable. It's just a great car.

I like that it has real current, advanced features such as a back-up cam and sensors that alert me of cars or pedestrians nearby as I am backing up. I like that it's made by a dependable manufacturer. However, my one complaint is the gas mileage isn't the best... I put at least $35 a week. Also, the customer service given by the dealership when I bought the car left a bad taste in my mouth. It involved a lot of deception and unprofessionalism.
