It Is A Great Car! — The car is great in every way:; ride, performance, looks, gas mileage and comfort. The car has not dissapointed us in any way and has a lot more to offer than the last one we had.

I Like My New Car. — Dealership THE PITS, Marina Kia in San Leandro was awful. Regneged on Costco agreement. Uped the Price. 2nd Kia Sportage. No problems, 197K miles, it was time to replaced my 2001 Sportage. Fun to drive. I miss my previous leather interior which held up to grandkids and still looked good.
