Love my KIA.....! by AJ in Miami on 03/11/2012. Trim: 2012 Kia Sportage EX AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Traded in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 with a V8. Bought the 2012 Signal Red AWD EX model with the UVO system. Love the improved mileage over the Jeep, love the looks, love the interior, love the handling, love the car. Also my first time being a foreign car and couldn't be happier. Took some getting used to the slower acceleration but the mileage pay off is worth it. I would have loved to get the SX with the turbo but there were none in Florida nor some of the other nearby states that I looked at.
Cons: I have only one con for this vehicle and that is that, for me, the position of the steering weel is a little uncomfortable. I wish a could lower it a notch or so lower from where it can go now. I like to hold the wheel while resting my elbows on both the console and the door arm rests. With the steering positions I can get my arms always seem to be floating in the air.
Overall review: This is the only SUV/Crossover that I could find that swayed me away from another Jeep. There aren't many around in Miami so it turns heads a lot. I started out looking at the Sorento but the Sportage caught my eye. KIA seems to have made some great changes, Most of their vehicle offerings are very attractive and well priced.
