2001 Kia Sportage 4x4 limited edition 4 cylinder from North America
A worthless piece of machinery
Since owning the car I have had to replace 5 catalytic converters, 1 fuel pump, the engine, the electrical system, the moldings on the windows because they leaked, exhaust leaks and when the engine was replaced they did not tighten the bolts so I lost bolts to the engine. I have also replaced 2 times all 4 cylinders.
This car is unreliable, it has cost me money even though you have roadside assistance they are worthless. I have had to lay out monies for car rentals, I have lost out on vacations, I have lost time at work, I missed concerts all money unrecoverable.
The car should not have been sold.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
