EJV I should have done my homework!!! February 16, 2018 EX - AWD
Overall Score
I purchased my 2018 Kia Sportage EX - AWD in August of 2017. The vehicle looked good, drove well, and the interior space was quite comfortable for both driver and passenger. That's where the "positives" end. Soon after bringing it home, I checked to see whether Kia had included a full size, or temporary spare tire and wheel. Much to my disappointment and surprise, all I found was a can of puncture sealant and a small compressor. Not very helpful in the event of a high-speed blow-out, so I went out and purchased a tire and wheel. Strike 1! With South Korea's reputation as a world technology leader, I expected some of the more common active safety technology to be included on this middle of the line Sportage model. To name just a few, there was no blind spot monitoring, tire pressure monitoring, rear cross traffic alarm, or lane departure monitoring. All features common on many car brands. In fairness, a rear camera was present. Strike 2!! I soon discovered my Kia did not like Canada's winter. When the colder weather arrived, about -10 to -15 C. the rear manual lift-gate would not unlatch. With no access to the rear storage area and my things stored there, I approached the Kia dealer and asked them to have a "quick look". They scheduled a service appointment for 5 days later. Yes; they expected me to go 5 days without access to the rear storage compartment. Fortunately, a day or so before my service appointment I figured out the "Kia secret formula." A hearty thump with my fist on the bottom of the lift-gate managed to persuade the latch to release the lift-gate. Strike 3!!! As my disappointment with the Sportage grew I felt prompted to re-enter the automobile market in February 2018. I began looking for a vehicle I would be happier driving and traded the Kia for another brand of S U V with many more features, for not a lot more money. I realized I should have done some more research into exactly what I was getting before I paid my money
