    GF car went where its not worth the $ to fix it. So we have been looking and tomorrow we might sign the papers for a 2000 Kia Sportage. Its all wheel drive, 100k miles, auto trans, 2.0, lot of power locks windows ...

    We are looking for a vehicle for her to run to work and back in daily, 2 mile trip, that will be good in the snow. She is from the west coast and has never driven in the snow. On the really bad days I will still drive her in my 4x4 but I need somthing for her she will not kill herself when the roads are a little slippery and im not avalible.

    Has anyone owened or know anything about the kia sportage or the 2.0 engine? Im wondering how many miles till this start giving me big problems. I have the car fax report and it all looks good but im just a little worried about the 100k miles. Also are these known for anything, no factory recalls but that dosent mean there isnt a prob they all have.

    Any advice apreciated in advance TY :D
