Price is about the same. I am not good with cars and this is going to be my first car. I want a car that won't break down for next 5-7years. That is my TOP priority. I will probably drive 8,000~10,000 miles/yr. My price range is about $10,000. What is the better choice? And Kia Sportage is reliable, right?

This is something new. I took it to the dealer yesterday and tey found nothing wrong; they replaced the brake fluid.Today it is still doing the same thing. Could the extreme cold temperatures be doing this to the brakes?
Srs light use to stay on while in drive. After replaced the top horn an replaced the 10 amp fuse, now i have a 1 4scnd and 8 quick blinks with 4 scnd pauses while I'm driving.
Yesterday I noticed the RPMs dipping very low, and I could press the gas peddle down to the floor but the vehicle would just coast, hop and eventually stall. It starts back up just fine. All electrics seem to be working. Took the vehicle into the mechanic. They verified the problem. Left it in the garage overnight the problem did not repeat during the day. I picked the car up in the evening and within half a block the problem re-occurred. Took back to the mechanic. Mechanic can verify it's happening again, but they are at a loss as to why. The ESC and ABS lights have been flashing on and off occasionally for about 2 weeks now. The Check Engine light has not been on.

changed one thing after another
It started awhile back. My break lights work. I have to keep my emergency lights on while i drive at dark so no one hits me from behind.
At first it happened once in a while....now it always does. It feels like a catapult.
The diagnostic code are p1115 and also p1624.
The car test drove wonderful. Made payment drove approximately one mile stopped,fueled up. Upon starting motor didn't want to keep running. I forced it fuel to make it run, at that moment it felt the trans was slipping around 2nd to third causing rpm to excelerate and loss of speed to vehicle. continues to repeat unless I manualy shift the motor my self. Once in fourth it runs out decent but had a humming or winding and seems to be holding back.
checked damper seems to be working
blew out heater core with air
blows cool not hot
