Purchased As New
I researched the Sportage thoroughly before purchase, but must admit I was attracted to its looks right away. I had driven a Volvo station wagon for years and didn't want to give up the cargo space, but didn't want a huge gas-sucking SUV, either, so I was focused on small SUV's and sport wagons. I have been most pleased with my Sportage. Some users complain about the poor acceleration, but I do not find this to be a problem. It's not 0-60 in 3 seconds, but it's decent and way more than I'm used to. I opted for the bumper-to-bumper warranty and my driver-side door lock control was replaced free of charge when it failed. I have had no other issues with this car, and recently got the front windows tinted to match the back. I also got a good deal by purchasing the model on the lot instead of ordering one. Gas mileage is not as bad as I expected, but I mainly drive for short distances around town, so a full tank typically lasts a week and a half. I do think it is strange that this vehicle has no temperature guage for the engine, just a warning light that appears when it overheats. I sincerely hope I never see it, and if I do, I have a spot to pull over right away.
