    2005 Kia Sportage

    Sportage a great car

    Pros: comfort

    Cons: Lower MPG

    This is a very comfortable, sporty and sure-footed vehicle. It has been driven in many bad Minnesota winter conditions, and has done very well. It is comfortable, and is great for long trips. The legroom is surprising, and you can fit a lot of cargo in the back, even with the back seatbacks up. The sportage is very quiet, which is good for listening to audio-books on long trips.

    2005 Kia Sportage - EX V6 (A4) FWD

    Pros: The stereo!

    Cons: No temperature gauge.

    Advice: Get a good deal on an '05 while you still can! Get it loaded, so worth the price, it's crazy to sell them at that price!

    I just got the 05' Sportage EX Luxury Package V6 2-WD. Heated leather seats and a 6 in dash CD player and sun roof. It's silver with black leather. I still can't believe it's a Kia and no one else can either! I traded in an '03 Infiniti G35, yes that's right! For the Sportage and LOVE IT. I like the handling, the smooth ride and have everything in my Kia that I had in that expensive Infiniti! And at 1/2 the price!

    Pros: The inside of the vehicle. Roomy for small SUV

    Cons: The Leaks - Engine Oil - Transmission oil - Compresser Oil

    Advice: Great Price

    It drove very smooth for the first month. Then the leaks started, in one month I had a eng. oil leak, transmission leak and the funniest one of all a air conitioner compressor leak. The car was in the shop over 20 day in one month. Thank god for the great warranty. WE WILL SEE IN DO TIME IF THIS NEW SPORTAGE IS BETTER THEN IT OLDER BROTHER, BAD START?
