I Love My Kia — Just damn good fuel milage, and kinda fun to drive, bought it just for a work truck to go back and forth, but, i seem to drive over my jeep grand. I would recommend others to buy, I mean for the price of used, this is great. Now its not a caddy or vette, but a nice little run around

Up Till Now It Has Been A Good Car — It seems the closer I get to paying it off the more things that go wrong with it

Love It! It's Too Bad Kia Is Not Making The 2-door Convertable Sportage Anymore! — Newly painted, no dings; only 72000 miles; only one adult women owner and driver - I bought this car brand new with only 15 miles on it. Recently got New tires, new battery, new tire cover and and new vinyl top cover.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

The Best Car I Could Have Ever Bought. — My review on my New 2002 Kia Sportage 2Door Convertable is breath taking. I have longed for this car and I finally got it. The gas on the car is amazing, finding parking is great and most of all, I love how smooth it rides.
