Great Suv — My Kia Sportage is a fun and very reliable SUV. Has plenty of space for the family or hauling things. Manual transmission is fun to drive and it handles really well. Radio is pretty good too. Gas mileage is great.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love my Kia! Great little SUV with a stick shirt I can drive this thing like a sports car. Also get good gas mileage.

Cons: With A/C on the power drops.

Pretty Good Car On A Budget But Get The Warrantee, As It Will Eventually Have Issues! — The low mpg was a surprise to me (I didn't do my research) as I was expecting 25-30mpg from a newer 4 cylinder engine but this only gives me 18 on a good average day! Add to that a small transmission (covered under warrantee) and a ac compressor that went out t a65K miles, and I am startin g to worry about overall reliability of this car as it starts to age! My warrantee ran out at 60k miles since I did not buy it new, if it took me to 100k I would be happy.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fairly solid build quality, 100k mile warrantee if you bought it new (but I didn't)

Cons: I had a small transmission problem  at about 57000 miles, warrantee covered it. Now at 65k, my AC wcompressor went out, costly repair.  Fuel mileage is not very good for a 4cyl vehicle, and I was expecting more when I bought it (onot realizing the low mpg rating the car actually has!)

Served Our Children Well. Was There What We Needed It For — No issues with the vehicle. Well maintained. It's a good student car for short trips to high school and running errands for parents. You can park it anywhere. Great Color for night driving. Reflective Silver Metallic is a good choice

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car for short trips and 8 hr drive. AC, Gas Mileage, worked well. Cargo hatch and fold down seats work great for hauling what you need.

Cons: Five people for a long trip would be difficult. No more than 4

Great Suv For Family Needs — I like the comfort level and appearance of this car, it's also pretty easy to keep clean. It has plenty of storage. Gas mileage is decent. I've really enjoyed this SUV, and it has gone above and beyond the needs of my little family.

Pros: Smooth ride, I like the way it looks (quaint SUV). plenty of storage

Cons: Not great on gas mileage (but not aweful either).

Very Positive — The car handles great around town; and has sufficient pickup on the highway. Though a little noisy, the cargo space is excellent for trips. Controls within easy reach. Disc brakes work great; people comment postiviely on the appearance of the car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Driving ease, quality

Cons: a little noisy on highway

Wow!! — WOW!! My parents got this car and I thought it was a joke...until I drove it. This car has the pick and go power. The steering is soo on point. It has the utility of a nice size SUV but gets the gas mileage of mid-size car. It gets 24 MPG with us.

Pros: Power, Rack and Pinion Steering, Utility

Cons: Idk!

2008 Sportage — The performance of this small SUV isn't great considering its a 4 banger butthat being said it had no problem driveing over the malahat. Fuel Mileage isn't bad we get about 460 KM to the tank Highway. in city its a little worse but its still affordable. have not yet taken it off road to see how well it drives on gravel or how the ESC (electronic stabillity control) works.

Pros: Its a 4 bager with some guts

Cons: its white
