Is 196000 kms to many
I would think that depends very much on the service history and how well it was cared for and even the roads it spent its life on . Also how many ks a year you do is a factor to consider Its a good idea to get a good mechanic and a panelbeater to drive it and run his eye over it if you have no real experience with cars . There are a lot of suv's out there i would not go near but this is my second kia sportage and my 3rd will be a kia and perhaps the sorrento good luck
Just purchased a 2021 Kia Sportage have just been told someone had an experience with catching fire parke in a garage ? Is this a cooking thing to worry about happening
For a start it does not apply to diesels only petrol models (and a quick call to your kia dealer providing the rego or the vin no will find out if you have to put it in for a no cost recall which i believe takes a 1/2 hour. I am fairly sure of the tens of thousands in aust none have had a problem but it is good Kia is pro active and on the job
good to know thank you gives me reassurance
What is the interior cabin noise rating
I have a GT line diesel and except minimal clatter at idle no noise at all! Awesomely swift and silent!
Has anyone had a problem with their 2012 Diesel Kia Sportage Platinum, with the Panaromic Sunroof leaking? I only noticed just recently that there was a little water mark on the roof just above the back left hand passenger seat. Would love to hear if anyone has had issues if any?
I have a 2014 sportage which was regularly serviced. No oil or water leaks.
Whilst driving I heard a knocking noise coming from the engine. I stopped and called NRMA roadside service. It was found that the engine had seized. I had no prior warning of any problem. What can I do?
My brother had the same problem. 2014 SL Sportage with 86,000 km (53,400 miles) seized at 90km/h. I will have the engine opened up and a proper diagnose carried out with experts. The local Kia vendor was not much help. Not interested in knowing what really happened, apparently. They just blame the oil pump; early failure they say. I think the SAE viscosity of the engine lube oil chosen by the vendor for our climate (sub-tropical, Paraguay) is not right. I will get to the bottom of this.
Hello All, I am going to buy an used Kia Sportage 2016 GT Line, odometer 130+K. During inspection I have noticed a knocking sound from front right side, I could even feel the knock it while driving at low speed. With high speed the sound is not noticeable. Is this repairable? will Kia warranty cover this? Do you suggest buying this car? Has anyone experienced this, could you share your experience. Thanks
We have a 2019 Sportage 2 litre petrol and have just bought a 13 ft caravan tow weight around 1350 kg . Does anyone have trouble towing with the Sportage . I’m worried it won’t have enough torque for hills
I’m thinking of buying my first car, the 2012 Kia Sportage platinum auto 4x4. I would like to know if it’s reliable when travelling on dirt road? The km is 182835 and what should I be concern about buying and travelling?
Hi. I see the gt line has almost every feature, but does it have a speed limiter? Also is the digital speedo a decent size.
Mine has neither...I have a SLi, just a
regular Speedo.. not aware of àny "speed limiter"
The speed limiter is atatched to your right foot. The digital speedo is accessed thru the menu and will stay on; good size.
Sometimes the foot is not properly attached to the brain. The speed limiter in my car has saved plenty on speeding fines. A very handy feature if you want to use it.
My KIA Sportage GT Line 2016 has experienced failure of the electronic parking brake switch 4 times. Luckily the 7 year warranty has covered the replacemrnt cost, since I purchased the car in April 2016.
I am wondering if this is an inherent design/manufacturing fault.
If so can the manufacturer rectify this problem?
Neel - I have found the 7 year warranty not worth the paper it is written on. When I got my brand new Kia the wipers were perished and I had to fight to get them replaced! I am not happy at all. I think there are some inherent faults but Kia won't fix them. I looked into my consumer rights to have the car taken back - it was way too hard as Kia will not work with you. Tell you one story before you sign for the purchase, but a different one after! I made the decision to sell my Kia - yes lost money on it but ultimately you can't put a price on your life. I will never step foot into a Kia vehicle again!!
