    I can comment on the Grand sportage since i had one,... and it was pathetic how my brakes stopped working on the way back from murree,... took it straight to the dealer and they (very surprisingly) a week later offered me a under warranty (plus 1 lakh) exchange with a new (leather etc) car because my sportage was found to have a permenant fault (they couldn't fix it for some reason).

    To sum it up:
    Quality of the product,... no good.
    Quality of service,... Excellent.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    I also have a kia,
    Car does have some minor quality issues but overall these cars are best value for money. No major trouble in 2 years
    Dealerships are also good in most parts of the country.
    Keep a cool head and wear seatbelts!

    Once I parked my Kia NGV in the FTC parking lot and went to my office on the seventh floor. I could see my car from the window and right next to it was a Baleno. Quite surprisingly the length was exactly the same from the top view, and I was pretty shocked.

    Just because the dashboard and inside door panels are pretty simple, doesnt mean the car isnt comfortable. Seriously, if people didnt look at resale, it would have been a huge success.

    Till Later,
