Not safe when backing up
"I do like my Kia Sportage but the only thing that is negative about this vehicle are all the blind spots. I do not feel safe when trying to back up or change lanes because the design in the back of the vehicle prevent good visibility "

solid and reliable
"My Sportage has been solid and reliable transportation for both work as well as personal use. It is rugged, the large wheels are appreciated on rougher roads. I had an inexplicable failure of the dashboard display, but the 100,000 mile warranty covered repairs. My only real complaint is that the front-wheel drive tends to spin the wheels under wet road conditions."

Roomy, well-designed

Like the look--slightly "sinister"

Good power even with the front-wheel drive version
Family

5.0

Solid transportation, safe-feeling, and with the rear seats dropped down can hold a surprising amount of gear to help with moves.
Cost

5.0

Cheaper than the Honda and Toyota versions of the mini-SUV design and compares favorably.
