    Default Kia Sportage

    I was interested in buying a kia sportage and so I wanted to know any ups or downs.

    Any engine or technical faults or something I should look out for.

    I heard that Sportage engines heat up quickly, is that true?

    Buy it, but please, dont take it off-road.
    Respect others opinions and they'll respect yours.

    Heating problem was resolved by dewan by putting new radiator, fan and oil cooler. Do check that the new kit is installed in the one u buy. Good buy. Just follow the manual and be cautious about turbo.

    aoa...well my suggestion for u is NOT to buy sportage...as u can buy prado 96,surf 96, or even CL7 in almost the same price...but the vehicle that i really am preferring is the LandCruiser VX LIMITED...it starts from around 17.5 lacs (91 modle)...and if u invest 25 lacs u will surely get a way good 6 cylinder '96 SUV than buying a sportage...thx

    Sportage is just rubbish, we have a GrandSportage at office and once I had to drive up to Balakot just after the earthquake, what a bad car to drive, though looks are good. Interms of pick and stability I will give it minus 10 out of ten.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Good car in small budget.
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    I had a sportage (IDN 2177) for less than a year, imagine it as a corolla hatchback and nothing more. I DID dare to take it off road once,... never again.

    For all it's down points I have to admit it wasn't all that bad. But that still never stopped me from calling it a Kia "Shortage"
