2008 Kia Sportage LX from North America
Not a good investment
Gets wet under the driver's seat. Many times it gets wet under my seat. Dealer says it's a windshield problem, but they have repaired it two times, and I still have the problem.
Noisy engine. When I bought the car, they told me it was in very good condition. When I step on the gas, it makes a very loud noise like a very old car. Not even my Toyota Corolla with 255000 km makes such a noise.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds like you have an exhaust manifold crack or other exhaust problems.
Also, in the future, take any car/truck/SUV to an independent mechanic for an inspection. Have them put it on a lift to check for any body damage from underneath.
The days of trusting a dealership are over... individuals are trading in lemons, problem and abused cars... and they are stuck with them... until they can sell them off to an unsuspecting buyer who trusts what they say.
