I just bought a new 2013 Sportage LX yesterday and when i got it home i realized, "Hey :D ...NOW I can finally use my kayak again!" But sadly I cannot. I realized it doesnt have rails to put crossbars on. Does anyone know if its possible to purchase the factory roof rails? If so How Much and where?
Thanks guys

Kia has no "kit".The rails themselfs are list price $143.00 each, I'll sell for $110.00. The ends caps are $62.00 each , list, sale price of $49.00. there is front and rear mldgs needed as well thet are $31.00 sale price of 25.00 each. If you wanted all the hardware that will be extra.

Maybe i'm just crazy, but i can't find the price on the Rhino Rack...
I wasn't sure what an unsealed roof was...But I guess it's not an option?

It's not rated for unsealed roads, which means not for offroading as the extra bumps break the rack.

So I would need 2x Roof Rails $110.00, 2x End Caps $49.00, and 2x Moldings $25.00= $368.00 Total- Correct? + shipping of course.
And what does "all the hardware" include?
Thanks

Yes, your correct. No tax if you not in MI. The hardware would be nuts and bolts. The cross rail kit from Kia has a list of $210.00, yours for $169.00

COBRA259- do you have a website or pics of product?
I called up my dealership and they said they don't offer the "Rails" as a Parts Accessory. Which I thought was strange...Maybe I'll try phoning another local dealer.

And I haven't looked into yakima or the others yet, my car's only 2 days old and I was initially just bummed. But I do like the stock look of the rails.
I'll also read up the forum about others experience w/yakima etc.

So I'd only need 2x end caps...right?
sorry i thought you'd need 2 end cups per rail. double check on this. also its weird you don't have rails on top. i thought only a base model came without these,but you claim you bought LX version.... :confused:

I thought it was supposed to also, but website also shows power folding mirrors standard, if I remember right. But mine has none. Just Flush black plasticfills in the Rail path. It looks fine, But i've just never not had rails. I'm concearned about scratching the paint on my roof with the others. Am I being paranoid?
