Bow tie grill has my car dressed to impress.

My Kia is great on gas use averaging 25 mph. I like the style of my Sportage and feel like it is spacious and fun to drive. My car is white which makes the black bow tie grill pop. There are many amenities you can add but mine is not that equipped. I truly miss the in dash GPS from my previous car. I do have the backup camera which is great and I do not think I could ever live without. I do like the all wheel drive which makes handling in Michigan winters so much easier. There have been a couple recalls but it was easy to have them taken care of. The only thing I find hard to get used to is the 4 cylinder and the slower get up and go. Kia is working very hard to improve their brand and I think that is a benefit when you buy a new Kia, the warranty is great.

High rated safety, roomy, comfortable for a family of 4 (still enough for 5). Can even get it with a towing package for traveling. RELIABLE!

At first, we never saw ourselves ever buying a Kia. After having a Soul for a rental car, the ride was so comfortable we started looking for one. Going to a well-known dealer they only had a basic model we weren't interested in. Long story short, they made us test drive the sportage. My husband fell in love with it and at first, I didn't like the way it looked. After having it a month, I fell in love as well. Not ONE complaint. Absolutely comfortable, safety ratings are great! Enough room in the back for two carseats and a person. The one feature we didn't know about for downhill, we found and figured it out and were HIGHLY impressed when we didn't even know we had it. Put 8,000 miles in 3 months because we love it that much. I even think it's pretty now.

Switched to Kia and not going back!

I drove a Dodge Charger for many years. I liked the power and the low profile. When I bought the Kia Sportage, it was a big change. It is much more comfortable to get into and out of. We have driven to Las Vegas from LA a few times and have been very comfortable. There is enough leg room in the backseat for our 6'2" son to be comfortable. There is good power and pick-up. There is enough storage in the back. We keep the regular maintenance and have not had any problems at all. I really like this car. It is reliable and just the right size. It is not too small and definitely not too big. It parks easily. I love the rear camera. The a/c is strong, which we need in la, even in the winter.
