Kia Sportage 2010 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Sportage 2010 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What compact SUV can I buy for $10,000?

    Your budget limits you to older models, around 2010-2012. One to look at is the Suzuki SX4; others are the Kia Sportage and Mitsubishi ASX.

  • Best budget family SUV

    With your slim budget you're looking at a 2010/2011 model, which will have on average around 150,000 km. It will be hard to find anything under that sort of mileage. At that I would be loathe to suggest a European brand, given that repairs can be expensive. Having ruled out the Tiguan I would suggest a Honda CR-V or a Mazda CX-5.

  • Kia Sportage 2010: Problem finding spare parts

    It's not just the dealer and it's not just Kia. Most companies keep only fast-moving parts in stock and have to order anything else, which means sea freight delays.

  • Kia Sportage 2010: Converting diesel to LPG?

    The manufacturers of duel-fuel systems for diesels claim around 20 per cent better performance and economy, but there are also horror stories about blown engines. My understanding is that the systems are designed to deliver fuel consumption savings, but a side benefit is an increase in power. If you drive your vehicle the same way you did before the conversion you will make the fuel consumption savings and the engine would probably be ok, but if you make use of the extra go in the engine, as many people apparently do, you won’t get the fuel savings and the engine will be at increased risk of damage. I wouldn’t recommend it, and I certainly wouldn’t recommend it on the new vehicle when the warranty is still in play.
