  1. Things you really like about the 2020 Sportage

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I have the LX and it holds the road like a cheetah on the Serengeti Plains even on our snowpacked roads. I don't know how to explain it any better.
  2. 2020 Sportage Prices Paid / Offered

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I wonder how many states do what they do up here in Alaska and give you permanent plates for your car at age 65. No sales tax either.
  3. 2018 Engine into Limp Mode Home for the 4th time...

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I don't know which product you're talking about but the design flaw is between the cylinders. The surface area of the block around the cylinders and between them is too small so that head gaskets are eventually blowing through.
  4. 2018 Engine into Limp Mode Home for the 4th time...

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    My wife's mother got her a brand new 2018 Escape in January and we found out this summer that all the 1.5 turbo engines have a design flaw and eventually they will all blow a head gasket so much for the escapes. Also I don't like the car, I like my 2017 Sportage way better. All the computer...
  5. Paint Durability

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    The paint thickness is one of the very few complaints I have about the Kia. I don't know how thick it is on the 2020 models but my 2017 is pretty thin. And yes getting clear bra on the front is a good idea if you want to spend the money.
  6. Sportage takes too long to warm up

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    You and Rvoll are both right I find the ECO mode to be a waste of time. One less light on the dash.
  7. Sportage takes too long to warm up

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    My 2017 LX warms up extremely fast up here in the cold or on a warm day. Within five minutes of leaving the house it's usually fully warmed up and the needle stays right there in the center of the gage. The low-tech climate system in the LX seems to work very well and needs very little...
  8. 2017 Sportage LX or EX - More tech or more dampening?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I have a 17 l x and it doesn't have any wine. It is a very quiet car and I have had no problems with it whatsoever. I find the LX has everything you need in a car that is priced like this one. I have never needed any of the higher Tech items. I actually love my car. I don't think there's any...
  9. Sportage takes too long to warm up

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    If you have to drive your car for 20 minutes before the temperature comes up to normal you've got a problem and need to go to the dealer.
  10. Is there any way to turn off the DRL (Daytime Running Lights)

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    You might be better off seeking advice over at the European Kia forum. This is where I started reading about Kia's but found out that they had a lot of differences compared to the ones sold in the United States. https://www.kiaownersclub.co.uk/forum
  11. Change the Radio Default Setting?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Mine always defaults to the last thing I was listening to. I thought they all did that. I also like having the CD player in the LX trim I think it's a great radio and music system.
  12. Winter Tyres Kia original 19"

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    My my what some people will write on these forums. Hey Rvoll at least you and I both own sportage's. Sorry to the OP hope you got your answer.
  13. Winter Tyres Kia original 19"

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    This summer we had quite a few days here in Anchorage in the 80s and 70s which is quite warm compared to past years. Some places driving around town it got up to 86 most people here said wow. Snow tires here still have to be changed out for the summer. That's why I got the michelins. Those tires...
  14. Winter Tyres Kia original 19"

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I read the article and their basic conclusion was the tires were equal or just about equal. The reason I went with the michelins is Costco had a super good price on them and they come with a 40000 mile tread warranty which the other snow tires do not hence (summer use). Last winter I tried...
  15. 2017 Sportage SX rear spoiler cracked

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Go to the next page of posts Brad k has something about the cracks.
  16. 2020 headlight shadow and rear turn signals

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I don't get shadows with my Morimoto LED headlamps.
  17. Winter Tyres Kia original 19"

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I have used Nokia hakkapeliitta tires up here in Alaska in the past but I needed studs. The Michelin x-ice 3 tires don't need studs and I can leave them on all year but the Nokia's I had to change out every summer. I find it interesting that the Michelin Tires work just as good without studs...
  18. Tires for 4G SX AWD

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I put Michelin x-ice 3 tires on my Sportage last winter and they work great up here in Alaska. You can also leave them on in the summer and that's a great feature of these tires.
  19. 2017 Kia Sportage dead battery issue

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    SSportage is right the USB port shuts off when the ignition key is off.
  20. am radio static/interference on 2017 Sportage

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Listen to another person's AM radio close to your car and if it doesn't have static I would take yours to the dealer and have them fix it
