i purchased my kia sportage 4x4 brand new in july of 1999 since i day i drove it off the lot it has been a constant source of stress and frustration. shortly after purchasing it the check engine light would continously come on and then the car would lurch and chug. car was towed back to the dealership and it was kept there for apporoximately 2and a half weeks. it has also had problems where it wouldn't start due to corrosion on the starter clip . this has happened twice. i also had the windshield wipers stop working on the way home from work in a snow storm with my four year old son in the back. it also started making a loud rumbling noise that sounded like i was driving over speed bumps. this led to them needing to replace the hubs, bearings, and axle shafts. car only had approximately 33000 miles on it. at the same time i was told that the front brake pads and rotors were bad and needed to be replaced. this was at a cost of $400.00 to me. i have very strong safety concerns with this vehicle. i do not like having myself or my child in the vehicle for fear of what else is going to happen with it and will we survive to tell about it.*ak
