1999 Kia Sportage EX 4WD Review
Constant Trouble Right From The Start - Especially Upon Approaching 90k Mi... — Let's see: mechanically, everything underneath is extremely light-duty. Front bearings constantly loosen up, vacuum lines for front hubs rip/tear frequently, sparks plug(s) blew out twice!, head gasket blown, oil pan rusted out, rear door handles and power locks haven't worked since 35K (no, it's not the fuse)...I have owned it since 27K mi and have not had a stretch of more than 2 months without a problem.
Owner for 5 years, 10 months
Miles Driven per Year:18,000

its a really good car for off roading its mainly just a traveling car but its gets from point A to be point B when you want it too
its a 4 cylinder so its a little tough to go up hills, it dont have cruise control
Its A Traveling Car So It Gets Good Gas Milage Out Side Of Town — i liked this car because its goes just about anywere you want it to. going up hills is a little tough but coming back down is really easy its got 4WD so its easy to get out of sticky situations, its a family car, this car has had almpost 5000$ put into it
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

If You're Looking For A Little Suv, I Think You'll Like The Sportage.
It's a great vehicle for the money. I get about 21 mpg around town. We have not taken it out on a long trip as yet. There is plenty of leg room in the back seat. The back seats fold down easy to make... Read More
