Summary:

I love my KIA

Faults:

Suspension bushings wore out after 60,000 miles in Puerto Rican roads. Not bad at all, considering the condition of the roads here.

General Comments:

This is my second KIA Sportage. I first had a 1995 model, and had such a good experience with it that I bought a second one in 1999. I have decided that my next vehicle will be a KIA as well.

KIA vehicles are a good value.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
