I found just what I was looking for, a 2wd, MT, 4 cyl,AC, 4 Door 2000 KIA Sportage.I live 10 miles down a dirt, gravel and rocky road but do not need 4wd but do need the gas economy and the upright seating position for an arthritic lumbar spine. The price is right but the vhicle has just about 100,000 miles showing on the odometer. Drives ok except for slight vibration in steering wheel above 60mph. The front tires are nearly worn out, worn evenly though, which could acount for the vibration. The CARFAX vehicle history shows no problems and the body is not dented up from parking lots so the milage could be mostly highway miles.I do not claim I am a mechanic but I am a very good parts changer as the runability of my 73 Plymp Scamp and 78 slant 6 dodge van with either 300,000 or possibly 400,000 miles will atest. I would appreciate any advice on what would be due to be done on this vehicle and any guess on cost of parts. Thanks for anyand all help.
