At 70,000 miles my 2006 Sportage gas tank rotted out! At 75,000 miles the motor makes a tapping noise, more so when I first start out. The suspension bangs, sounds like a loose exhaust pipe(which it is not). It`s been like this since day one.
oh these VT roads are tearing up my suspension system. I had to live through the Irene storm damage and let me tell you the roads are horrible since then. first thing to go was the R-F strut mount, and now my front struts are blown out and I need the bearing plates replaced on both sides. Other than that, my car has been a gem! i've replaced my brakes once so far and i've done regular maintenance such as the timing belt, hoses and belts and regular oil changes, tranny flush/fill and getting ready to do the transfer case oil change. My biggest complaint is the cheap material on the inside of the vehicle. My grandson managed to break the console cover and now I've lost that and to replace it is like 400 bucks because you need the whole assembly. But yes i'd buy a new sportage without hesitation as it is my lexus.
I bought my 2006 KIA Sportage LX 4WD gently used in 2006 and LOVE IT! No car on the road has the turn radius this one does. EASY to park, small on the outside, big on the inside. Stop lamp switch was recalled/replaced which solved my one problem...stability "ESC" light going off and on. I would like more MPG. I am getting 20 mpg average HWY/City even with a KLM air filter. Seats EASY to fold down for large loads. Not much luxury on the inside, nice sound system ,heat and AC good.
WE HAVE A 2.OLTS DIESEL. EXCELLENT, GOOF FINISHED, STABILTYAND POWERFUL. LOVE THEM
