1999 Kia Sportage 4x4 from North America
Do not buy a Sportage, they're junk!
After market moon roof leaked.
Brake pads fell off twice. Literally fell off causing the wheels to lock up almost killing me twice.
A belt broke causing a chain reaction with all of these other things happening to my engine costing $1200 damage. Which was unforseen.
The thing rattles in the rain.
Makes all kinds of strange sounds, which the dealer says are normal.
This is the worst car I have ever purchased. I advise anyone who is thinking about it, don't buy a Sportage!
It may save your life, because mine almost killed me twice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
