I purchased my Kia Sportage about seven weeks ago and I am pleased with its overall performance so far. It has a peppy 2.0 liter four cylinder engine and I have been averaging about 24 miles per gallon around town. I haven�t driven it over the road for long distances yet so I don�t have an average fuel usage for road trips yet. The vehicle is not a heavy body style so it doesn�t give you the feeling of a heavier vehicle, but the front wheel drive is very responsive on the road. This is a great little run about type vehicle and is fun to drive. The driver�s seat and front passage seat are roomy and the bench style rear seat is roomy for two adults or three kids. There is a lot of cargo room when you put the rear seat down. I don�t think I would have purchased this vehicle new, but as a used vehicle it works well for me and my driving needs. It is comparable to the Toyota Rav4 and Honda CR-V but at a lesser price tag. Kia�s reputation has come a long way over the past four years and there new car line is extremely popular. I usually keep my vehicles for ten years or more and shoot for a minimum of 150,000 miles before getting into another vehicle so I�m expecting this Kia Sportage to last a long time. Only time will tell!
