1996 Kia SportageReview

Safty — I loved this car because it was a Manual, you had more control than you would if you had a automatic. The one i had had a spare tire on the back, I highly recomend it. The four wheel drive was wonderful.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun

Cons: Big Family (more than 5)
