1996 Kia Sportage from North America
A piece of crap
One complete engine.
Computer ($1,000!! + labor).
Lots of electrical problems.
Battery failure after only a year.
It is a complete and total failure of quality, fit, finish and manufacturing by Kia Inc.
Do not buy a Kia. Just search the web and you will see I am not alone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have only good intentions to tell you that the Ford Festiva was designed by Mazda. Ford owns a large part of Mazda if not the whole company. In fact when you buy a small truck from Mazda, most of the parts are from a Ford Ranger. I know these things from experience.
