Question about Kia Sportage
I am assuming this is a manual transmission, it sounds like either 2 things
first the gearbox could be low on fluid, the reverse gear is slightly higher than the rest of the gears so may not be getting enough oil to it.
secondly it could be the thrust bearing on it's way out, although it could make that noise for another 2 years before anything finally gives, as you dont use reverse as much as the other gears.
I would get the gearbox oil checked out and also have the 4 wheel drive inspected, mainly the joints may need regreaseing, very important that 4x4s are kept well oiled, and greased.
Hope this helps, if not get back to me with more details so we can better diagnose.
