Pros

Loads of features; plenty of safety equipment; excellent warranty; available V6 at some competition's four cylinder prices.


Model Highlights

After a three-year hiatus from the U.S. market, the Kia Sportage returned as an all-new vehicle in 2005. For 2007, it is available in two trim levels: the base LX and the better equipped EX. Both front-wheel and four-wheel drive are available, as are a 2.0L in-line four-cylinder and a V6 engine.

The V6 boasts double overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder with an output of 173 horsepower and 178 ft-lb of torque. The four-cylinder uses 140 horsepower to achieve EPA ratings of 23 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway.

While you can get a five-speed manual with the four-cylinder Sportage, a four-speed automatic is the only available transmission with the V6 engine. All Sportage's are paired with traction control, electronic stability control, and ABS on four-wheel disc brakes. Passive safety features included front, side, and curtain air bags.

The LX features alloy wheels, roof rails, power mirrors, power windows, power locks, and a CD player. The EX comes very well equipped with air conditioning, a sunroof, all the power accessories you'd expect, plus cruise control and a trip computer. The Sportage EX also has a keyless entry and alarm standard. Inside you'll find a modern interior with faux brushed aluminum trim accenting the instrument panel and center console.

The Sportage's ride is reasonably comfortable for a small SUV. Most impressive in the Sportage is the V6's acceleration, which is quite peppy.

A Sport Package is available on V6 LX models. It adds a black mesh grille, special gauge faces, a cassette player, fog lamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rear spoiler, among other visual enhancements. The EX models can opt for the Luxury Package, which includes heated leather seats, automatic headlamps, an electrochromic rearview mirror with HomeLink, and a six-disc CD changer.


Model News

Rear curtain air bags improve the 2007 Kia Sportage's safety equipment. Also, the Sportage's EPA scores have increased by one mile per gallon across the board.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Kia Sportage is a relatively new design that has a lot of positive Kia traits, number one being the amount of standard safety and convenience equipment, including side curtain air bags. The V6 Sportage also costs just about the same as some of its four-cylinder competition. Topping it all off is Kia's 100,000-mile warranty, making the Sportage a very economical value overall.

Summary
HYUNDAI-KIA IS RECALLING 139,844 MY 2006-2007- SEDONA, SPORTAGE, SORENTO AND MY RONDO AND AMANTI VEHICLES. THE STOP LAMP SWITCH IN THE VEHICLE MAY HAVE BEEN DAMAGED DURING THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS. AS A RESULT, THE STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY MALFUNCTION CAUSING ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS TO EXIST: THE BRAKE LIGHTS MAY NOT ILLUMINATE WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED OR MAY REMAIN ILLUMINATED WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS RELEASED. ON SOME OCCASIONS, WHEN THE VEHICLE IS STARTED, THE SHIFTER CANNOT BE MOVED FROM THE PARK (P) POSITION. IF THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC), THE ESC LIGHT MAY ILLUMINATE INDICATING "ESC OFF." IF THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH CRUISE CONTROL, DEPRESSING THE BRAKE MAY NOT DEACTIVATE THE CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM.

Consequence
THE MALFUNCTION OF THE STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE STOP LAMP SWITCH TO ELIMINATE THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS CONDITION MIGHT EXIST. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MAY/JUNE 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CONSUMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT 1-800-333-4542.

HYUNDAI-KIA RECALL NO. SC077. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Rondo and Sportage, model year 2007-2011 Sorento, model year 2007 Sedona, model year 2010-2011 Soul, and model year 2011 Optima vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and causing the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of PARK without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Kia will send an interim notification to owners in May 2013. When parts are available, owners will receive a second notification and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall campaign number is SC098.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
