So . . . . . what's the replacement and why?

Thanks for your help, advice and input since we took delivery of our Sportage. Sorry to see a valuable member leave the ranks. Best of luck.

Nice choice. I too have looked at the Optima (a little more grunt would be nice - we don't have the turbo, yet!) . . . but love the Sportage and will hang on to it for a while yet - got too many projects in mind that haven't even been started yet!
Wife has come to grips with her 3 door SLS Rio and feels the same - no regrets getting rid of the Subaru Impreza.

I was kinda focusing in on the part where he said

"just hope it's as trouble free as the sportage".

Why would he say that if he didn't have some issues with it...

Oh and I can read just fine njerald, thanks for your concern.

I'm with you rogan "just hope it's as trouble free as the Sportage" does not necessary mean he had any problems.

Clearly I must be misreading it then. I mean if I had a car that had zero problems for me, why would I make a comment saying I hope my new car is as trouble free as my previous car (which I had zero problems with). Just sounds a little weird to me.

Regardless, I hope he enjoys his new Optima. A nice car, and If I didn't need the extra trunk space of the Sportage I would have totally gotten the Optima Turbo instead.
