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?
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.Show more
Kia Sportage 2010: Problem finding spare parts

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.Show more
