Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Kia Sportage 4x4?
Most Sportages will have been used as family cars, so it’s important to check through the interior for stained carpets, and scuffed or broken pieces of plastic. A car that has been used and abused by a family might not have had the best attention paid to its upkeep elsewhere.
Check the extremities of the car for any damage picked up in tight car parks or on school runs; any scuffs or dents should be obvious. Check the wheels, too, because alloy wheel repairs can be expensive. Plus, there could be suspension damage as well, if the car has hit a kerb particularly hard.
