"Sportie" by JR - Humble, Texas on 07/28/2011. Trim: 2011 Kia Sportage EX FWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Handles extremely well... I drove it home in a rainstorm and was extremely impressed - My KIA Sportage did not hydroplane once, hugged the wet road nicely. It has lots of storage and cargo space, a great smaller SUV. Do I call it a truck or a car? My dealership added the towing package so I can pull a utility trailer as needed. I downsized from a Yukon Denali to a KIA Sportage and have loved my “Sportie” from the very first test drive. I have received many compliments from family, friends and strangers at the gas station asking me how I like my KIA Sportage – Extremely fun to drive and comes with excellent gas mileage!!!
Cons: Safety concern: All the doors unlock when vehicle is placed in park – Quick Fix: Ask your KIA Service Department to reset this safety feature. They can reset it so all the doors remain locked or the driver’s door will automatically unlock only when placed in park – Now when I shift into park all the doors remain locked (just like my Yukon did). I can now safely sit in a Houston jam with my KIA in park or open my door e.g. at the gas station to pump gas safely and all the other doors remain locked - Ladies no one will open the passenger door and steel your purse from the passenger front seat. FYI: Remember to take your keys with you; the doors lock automatically after a short while.
Overall review: Five Star Rating - You will love your new KIA Sportage!!!
