What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Kia Sportage

Kia Sportage Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 138hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual AWD
My previous Kia was totally reliable. The Sportage has the same engine & gearbox and many common fittings so I am hoping for the same (it has positive consumer reviews). The interior is designed for work with a well lined cargo area.
2006 4dr SUV 173-horsepower 2.7L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Very reliable and durabile at a very reasonable price.
Kia Sportage Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Remains to be seen. Kia motors is on it's way up and I still think it could go either way as far as durability and reliability are concerned.
