went to look at the new sportage to day nice but not shure to get it as its my frist car and the inshurance is £2500 but i do like it
a few considerations before purchasing a kia, make sure about the dealer, r they freindly , can u relat with them, r they close buy as if you have problems this eases the frustration, do the service offer a replacement vehicle in the event of repair under warranty, whilst ure kia is in the shop! be prepared once purchase dthat u are not buying a honda or toyota vehicl refinement, noting the kia sportage is a practical and made to a budget(does not mean less well made or inferor) in mind without the useless add ons the other manufactueres offer, bge prepared to pay for kia original patrs and it is hard to find after market parts, here in australia at least, strong vehicle, ready to go anywhwere..........
