I have the owners manuals for a 97 kia sportage. If you want them, I can scan them for you and put them in a PDF file for you. There are maybe 4 books! Just let me know, and I will be glad to help you out. Everyone here always helps me out, and I am more than happy to help out someone as well. Let me know at:
[email protected]

PS.. do not buy them from ebay. You will not get what you think you are getting! :haha:

Hello Mrstan,

can you make me a copy of the 1997 Kia sportage parts & catalog, let me know how much would it cost and I will send you a money order. I'm in San Juan, Puerto Rico and I've been all over the Islan looking for the catalog.

Thanks

MATRUCO

Hi Guys,
I have been threatened if I send anyone a copy of the user manual due to copyright issues. Sorry about that guys. I guess someone in Kia is watching the boards here.
I saw three on ebay though in printed form.
Again sorry to get your hopes up so high.

Legitimate copies of the shop manual for U.S./Canadian Sportage USED to be available at http://www.helminc.com. But alas, they are no longer offered.

The Kiatechinfo site was also a good source for partial shop manual info and full electrical manual data. That is, it WAS a good source until Kia decided to make a buck and charge for use of the site.

So Mr Kia rep watching the site. Why aren't shop manuals available thru Helm anymore? And why do you guys feel the need to charge your Kia customers to get service info at your website? That 10 year/100K mile warranty is pretty expensive, isn't it? Well....there's an easy fix for that. Build a better quality vehicle.
