Model Highlights

Kia's Sportage is still available in both front-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive for 2009, and can be powered by either a 140-horsepower, 2.0L 4-cylinder engine or a 173-horsepower, 2.7L V6. The 4-cylinder engine comes standard with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed electronically controlled "Sportmatic" transmission. The V6 is only available with a 4-speed "Sportmatic".

With the 4-cylinder engine, the Sportage has rather impressive fuel economy ratings for an SUV with an EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 23 highway.

The Sportage features a 4-wheel independent suspension for crisp handling on the road, yet long wheel travel and good ground clearance allows it to have modest off-road ability.

Inside, the 2009 Kia Sportage has space for five adults, with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat for cargo versatility. A fold-flat front passenger seat also helps with especially long loads or as a work table for the driver when parked.

With the back seat folded, the Sportage has a cargo capacity of nearly 67 cubic feet, yet with the back seat up and in place, it can still carry three sets of golf clubs, according to Kia. The rear cargo area also includes an under-floor cargo tray, tie-down anchors built into the floor, and a 2-position cargo cover. Other interior extras include a center console with a 2-stage tray, a lockable glovebox, map and cup holders for all doors and a rear-seat central armrest.

The Sportage comes in two trim levels, the LX, which comes with either the 4-cylinder or V6 engine, and the more luxuriously equipped EX, which comes with the V6. The LX includes standard roof rails, cruise control, power windows and mirrors, and an upgraded AM/FM CD sound system with Sirius satellite radio and MP3 capability, remote keyless entry and power windows and locks. The EX adds a power-tilt sliding sunroof, fog lights, dual power heated mirrors, upgraded seat fabric, optional navigation system, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and rear center armrest with dual cup holders.

Safety features lacking in the Sportage. Front seat-mounted side air bags, full-length side curtain bags, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are all on the standard-feature list.

To further customize the Sportage has two available package options. The Sport package, available on LX V6 models, gives the Sportage a slightly different personality by adding 17" alloy wheels, fog lamps, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear shift, rear cargo cover and aluminum trim. The Luxury package, available on EX models, boosts this top of the line model with heated front seats, leather seat trim, chrome inside door handles, automatic headlights, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with Homelink and 6-disc in-dash CD changer with subwoofer and external amplifier.

Warranty is also a huge selling point for the Sportage. It includes roadside assistance and limited bumper-to-bumper warranty for five years or 60,000 miles, while the powertrain warranty is good for ten years or 100,000 miles.


Model News

The Kia Sportage gets a facelift for 2009 including redesigned headlamps and front grill fascia. The updated interior trim and new electronic features like optional navigation, Sirius satellite radio, MP3 compatibility, as well as USB and auxiliary jacks all lend a refreshed feeling to the 2009 Kia Sportage.


Value Writeup

Its generous list of standard equipment, impressive 10-year/100,000 mile warranty and base price affordability make the 2009 Kia Sportage a value leader among compact SUVs.

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.

Summary
Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2008-2009 Kia Sportage vehicles manufactured August 9, 2007, to May 13, 2009. The wire harness cover on the Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU) may be improperly sealed allowing water to get onto the HECU circuit board. If the water is contaminated with salt, such as could occur from melted snow, the wire harness connector pins may corrode and the circuit board may short circuit.

Consequence
If the HECU short circuits, there is an increased risk of an engine compartment fire.

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the connector pins for corrosion, if no corrosion is found, the connector cover will be replaced. If corrosion is present, the dealer will replace the HECU assembly and the connector cover, free of charge. The recall began on November 28, 2016. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC138.

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).
