    Hi, I just bought an EX that came with the mounting space but no rails. The local dealer said there was a problem with that year and rails are now discontinued. They offered no other options. Can anyone help? Are racks that clip under the opened doors my only fix? Thanks, J

    I find it to be lackluster unfortunately. I remote start my car and have it run for about 8 minutes while it’s 95 outside, and it’s barely cool when I get in. I find it takes awhile before it really starts working well. What are your opinions?

    Hi all, We bought a high mileage Sportage 2005 and have gotten good use of it. It's needing tires, brakes and struts. With 270K on it are we unwise to keep fixing it? It's had regular maintenance. What's likely to go major wrong next? How far have loving owners managed to get?

    Hello all! My Kia Sportage is a 2018, and I got it from the dealer last fall, and the rear wiper stopped working. I thought maybe it was a fuse, but the 15A fuse for the rear wiper was fine. I checked some settings on the car, and the system tries to enable it, but no motion. The sprayer...
