I bought a used 1999 Kia Sportage in 2004 from a delar which had only 55,000 miles on it. DID NOT have any problem for about two years. The timing belt broke @ 70000 miles which is normal. The company recoment to change @60,000 miles. Two years ago I had to do a tune up and had to change one of the ignition coil. This summer I had to change the power steearing pipe line and the transmission cooling line which I did it myself which was easy. It cost me only the parts. I also had to change the front struts this summer. Because the front of the car bounces when I brake the car or when it hits pot holes. IThe radiator bursted while I was driving in the city. I contacted the Kia motors why it happened they DID NOT care to reply!!! For the last two years the car some times stolls. The workshpe changed the Mass air flow sensor. It did not do the job. Then I changed the ideal speed sensor. still it did not do any good. CAN any one know why the car stolls ?. Now I had to change the heater core. Because the hot air smells coolent. I have No complaint about all the repair I made, BUT I WILL NOT forgive the Kia Motors for NOT responding to omy complaint why the radiator bursted. IF it was on the High Way it would have been a serious case. It made a very loud noice which really scared me .

take your car to a brake shop and have the rotors turned if your vibration and shuddering is occurring when you actually apply the brakes.

Kia Sportage 2006 - Front brake discs are warpped

warpped brakes can be a problem and can be solved. usually if they warp it is because the tires are out of balance or alignment. also when you go to change the brakes have your rotors checked to make sure those are not warped as well. if they are that will also cause the brakes to wear fast and also warp do to the friction. i would check the rotors to be safe. fiction causes heat to the brakes. and there for the brakes warp.
