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.
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.
Thank you I will take all these precautions
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
Thank you for your informative reply but I was looking for a 2nd hand sportage.
i dont know in detail abt it but one thing i know that it has a complex left right, left right air intake manifold...
Good Choice Go For It
Nashit bhaileft right, right left is because of intercooler and turbo NOthing very complex about it
Rubbish car..go for a Cygnus! I'm lovin mine! V8 Gasoline rules!
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.
Good car in small budget.
Buy Revos Boltoro
If u want to Buy it. no prob but dont take it off-road.
Well yarr remeber Its Korean Made so u cannot trust as he said dont take it off road and really its nothing comparitively to Land Cruiser.Land Cruiser is the King Of the Road.....Collect some more money and then buy that thing once and then u will be the happiest person on earth.
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"
kia shortage...lolz..should give this new name suggestion to dewan motors..
Does anyone know when the new model will be introduced and what will it be priced at?
New model will b competing with xtrail and likes. It wont be a cheap 4*4 AS OLD ONE
