I will save you alot of money and Aggravation, get rid of that car
quickly.
My friend has a 1999 Kia sportage and he has had every problem you can
think of from Wiring to the Engine. After Researching this car I found
that Many people have nothing but warnings and Horror Stories. I once
was in my friends 1999 KIA And the Volume on the radio was changing By
Itself , he told me he spent over $5,000 in repairs out of his own
pocket as the dealership said they were not responsible. Its a
deathtrap car. Period.

Not sure about that!!!!

My 97 Sportage...120K km on the clock.
Bought it new....
Only dealer service was 1K km, after just oil & filter change...done myself.

No problems or repairs to date...
all in original condition...brakes all from new.
Had few off road 4x4 trips as well.

Still goes like new.


My wife's BMW 318 95...never again I would buy this car.
Gearbox went at 50K...always something wrong with it.
Service...you don't even ask me....cost fortune.

cheers

I strongly suggest you purchase the shop manual. the heater core is fairly
easy to remove. you do not have to drop the steering column. the heater
box is to the right of it held by 4 bolts. the only difficulty is removing
the hose clips, which require a locking long nose tool. I cut agrove in the
pliars down the center to engage the tabs. Also a OBDI reader is a good
investment to tell you what the codes mean. One the east Coast we have a
parts store called PPE Boys (you can find them onthe internet too) they
sell the code reader for $85. I have 2 Sportages, they run like swiss
watches. my only complaint was that the plugs are a project to get to.
