Excellent

We have now sold our 99 Sportage and replaced it with a Santa Fe - big mistake. The Sportage was absolutely reliable, went anywhere a Cruiser could go - and better! The vehicle towed a well loaded trailer on 3 successive 5000k fishing trips, went Perth to Broome and back and never missed a beat. As a second hand 4wd you could not go wrong.

The seat belt alarm is annoying and drives you batty. Could have more rear storage room.


Excellent value for money would consider a newer model

OK

Mechanically, this car never failed me but unfortunately the electrics did. Would never buy a Kia again but definitely another 4WD. I got a Toyota Yaris after this one but do really miss being up high and the Sportage is more fun to drive.
Absolutely loved the shape and design of the car. Felt fabulous being up high and was fun to drive.
The car wasn't that old and the electrics continually played up, the windows stopped working, central locking played up and the doors would automatically lock on occasions, even locking my young baby in the car on a summers day. Fuel economy was not good either. Air conditioner continually broke down.
