I recently went on vacation and drove my new Sportage. I find the seat very uncomfortable on long trips.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What a great review - now I will not buy this truck because I know the seat is uncomfortable. There's no other way I'd be able to know that, especially by sitting in it for a few min at the dealer.

If an uncomfortable seat is the biggest problem you've had with your Kia so far, you're very lucky.
