The community thinks...
Good gas mileage with 4 wheel drive. by Roger from Colorado on 02/10/2011. Trim: 2008 Kia Sportage LX I4 4WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I wanted good gas mileage and 4 wheel drive, a hard combination to find. My Sportage has been very reliable. In 2 plus years and 32 thousand miles I have replaced 1 brake light bulb. At first I thought the 4 cylinder was pretty wimpy but with the 5 speed manual transmission I have discovered that judicious shifting takes care of just about all of my needs. For instance, by downshifting the sportage will do 60+ miles per hour on the steep parts of westbound I70 here in Colorado.
Cons: Lack of power from the stoplight.
Overall review: I would recommend this vehicle. Very reliable, decent gas mileage and with 4 wheel drive good to get to the ski slopes. Also with the rear seats folded down a decent amount of storage and hauling capacity.
