  1. Blacked out Sportage 2017 EX

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Just curious how hard it was to debadge the vehicle. What tools did you use/need? Do you have any recommendations to get it done without damaging the car?
  2. First 90 days with SX

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Agreed... I'm coming up on 9 months with mine, and just broke 6000 miles last week. I still get a little giddy every time I get into it, and it still has a bit of that "new car" smell to it. I've owned quite a few vehicles in my time, but I can honestly say that so far, my Sportage is by far the...
  3. Picking up a 2018 Sportage SX. What should I know?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Congrats on your purchase. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as everyone else here. And contrary to Sloppy's "read the manual" suggestion, LOL, I'd suggest taking it out and getting to know the vehicle... press buttons, learn how things work, how to set the rear hatch to auto open when you're...
  4. My thoughts on the Sportage 1 year later

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Well, I guess I'll chime in here as well... it's been 8 mos for me with my SX, and I now have around 5500 miles on it. No problems what-so-ever and I've loved every single mile I've driven in it.
  5. Changing modes

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Is anyone aware of any trick to put the car in Sports Mode and keep it there every time the vehicle is started rather than having to depress the button each time? I run in Sports mode almost all the time and I'm getting tired of pressing that little button twice every time I get in it.
  6. New SX

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Congrats and enjoy!
  7. Where's the CD Player?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Shortly after posting my original question which started this thread, I did the same thing, thinking it was time I moved away from CD's. I copied all of my CD's to Windows, converted to MP3, downloaded all of my other music I had purchased from Amazon, and tossed all 274 songs onto a thumb...
  8. Sportage Advetising

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Agreed, I see the same advertising gap here in California, but attribute that to what rvoll just said. The Sportage must be selling well enough and receiving enough positive reviews that Kia isn't worried about throwing a bunch of money into advertising that specific model... though that being...
  9. When will 2018 Sportage be available?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    If you're comfortable with it, then it doesn't matter what anyone else here says. $16,000 total for a 3 year lease doesn't sound like a bad deal to me though.
  10. panoramic roof rattle

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    No issues with mine, though I believe I have previously read in this forum some had issues with the seal coming loose, which they said was an easy fix.
  11. PRICE ON A USED 2017 EX and SX MODEL=I NEED HELP

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I know my SX would retail for about $27k if I went to sell it, based on Kelly Blue Book, and that's with only 4700 miles, but with Pearl White, which is a little extra, and the Beige interior, so I think $23k for a used SX w/7k miles on it is about right. As long as it comes with a warranty, and...
  12. Rear Hatch Auto-Opener Not Working

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Yeah, I needed to activate that function from the main dashboard control... go figure :) I just assumed it was always enabled.
  13. Burnished Copper SX- DO YOU LIKE THE COLOR?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    LOL... yep.. I agree sloppy... I still nearly get goose bumps every time I step outside and get in my Pearl White w/Beige 2 tone interior SX. I just love the color combo.
  14. Kia sportage bodykit

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    There are a few body kits out there for the 2017 (aka QL model), but none replace the front bumper (nose area), that I have seen.
  15. SX Interest Fading

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I know it's a bit early for me to tell, with only 4700 miles on my SX, but so far I haven't had any issues. During my last oil change (my only oil change so far), I even had the dealer remove the plugs to check them out, which they did and said they we're all looking good so far.
  16. UVO Useless?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Okay, so I've had my Sportage for 7 months now, and through that time have maybe connected my phone via USB to the car 6 or 7 times to let UVO update my mileage and everything else it updates. But quite honestly, I find that having to plug in my phone is a pain, mainly because I use that port...
  17. SX Turbo 0 - 60 Time

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Has anyone with an SX Turbo tested their 0-60 time? I've seen a number of online articles with a wide range of numbers... anywhere from 6.7 secs, all the way to 8.1 secs. Personally, I've been able to achieve 7.0 (in my FWD), timed with a free GPS app installed on my phone, but I was curious if...
  18. New SX Owner

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Congrats on your purchase... I'm quite certain you're going to be more than pleased with your decision to buy a Sportage.
  19. Another question about SX mileage

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Here in Northern California, I'm only seeing around 16-18 MPG, but I'm almost always in Sport Mode and most of my driving is in town. When I do travel on the highway, I get 2-3 MPG more.
  20. 2017 Sportage SX - 19 inch wheel offset question:

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Having checked into aftermarket wheels myself, I can tell you with 95% assurance that the SX can handle 19x8 or 19.8.5 with an offset anywhere between 33 to 45. The bolt pattern in case you don't know is 5x114.3mm.
