1998 Kia Sportage 4x4 2.0 from North America
Big mistake, not the deal I thought it was
Vacuum line blew on the 4 wheel drive twice. And still don't know why the engine jumps to 2500 rpms at an idle.
All the brake lines have been replaced, and the power steering lines have also.
Something is wrong with the A/C.
Terrible ride; it rides like a 1 ton truck on a 5 foot wheelbase.
Everything rattles, inside and outside the car.
Has very little power compared to other 4 cylinders.
Four wheel drive failed while off road, and got stuck.
The engine revs to high speeds at idle, and then you have no power when you take off.
No mechanic can figure out what's wrong with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
