History
Purchased wholesale in 2008, and have had very few problems with it. Towed small UHaul trailers cross-country, used as a commuter, and really enjoyed most things about this vehicle.

But in a burst of stupidity last December, I bought a brand new 2014 Mazda CX-5. It had some fancy features that the sportage didn't (like bluetooth and navigation), but on the whole, it actually wasn't a whole lot better... and it was really, really expensive.

So, I just sold the Mazda to a dealership and took the KIA back from my mom, and I am actually perfectly happy driving it again. It's a perfectly decent ride. As of November 2014, it has about 108k miles on it, and is going strong.

Although I have always wished it was red, I still like my green '05 Sportage quite a lot. :)
