Kia Sportage Reliability And Durability: Pros

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. full 2008 Kia Sportage review

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. full 2012 Kia Sportage review
