Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Kia Sportage 4x4?

This version of the Sportage is so new that no problems have emerged, and if you buy one now, you have the luxury of still being covered by part of its new-car warranty.

That at least will give you some peace of mind, because Kias, in general, have a very disappointing record for reliability. The previous Sportage came last in the 2005 JD Power survey, with half of the owners reporting engine problems. Mind you, it's not as if Kia can't get it right - in the same survey, the larger Sorento 4x4 came top of its class, and in the top 10 overall.
