2008 Kia Sportage from Nigeria
Cute and cheap, but poor after sales service
Seat belts are very uncomfortable.
Hand break has failed twice.
Brake pads wear out very fast.
Poor handling when applying the break at high speed, may be due to the fact that the brake pads wear out pretty fast!
The seat belts, especially at the rear seats, are very uncomfortable.
Also, after sales service is very poor: I took the car for routine service, but it was returned with a problem with the hand brake. When I complained, they said that the problem had probably been there all along without my noticing - the car was barely six months old by then! I had to pay extra to get it fixed. Now it has broken down again!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
