Kia Sportage Guides

We all have our own penchant; but sometimes, you just won't believe those people focusing their fondness on vehicles. But on the other hand, who wouldn't if these vehicles are just so nice you wouldn't want to even stain them. Ask about performance; well, those babies out there just know their stuffs and how to please the one conning them. Nowadays, vehicles in the automotive market are absolutely power-packed and full of exciting features that many have became fanatics. And for that, automotive manufacturers became compelled to provide the market with lovable vehicles to suit their needs; Kia is among such automakers. Providing the industry with different vehicle models including the Sportage; Kia made it with Kia Sportage parts that are uniquely designed to fit it desirably.
 


The history of the Kia Sportage is divided into two generations; the first one being produced as a compact SUV while the second generation was produced as a crossover SUV. The first generation of Sportage was introduced in 1995 and was manufactured until 2001; it was created based on a Mazda Bongo platform and was considered as a "toy" sport-utility vehicle. It was then sold in either a 4-door, 2-door hardtop or a 2-door soft top. It was discontinued in favor of the Sorento in 2001. In 2005, it was reintroduced commencing its second generation in the automotive industry. This time, the Sportage came out of the market sharing an Elantra platform along with the Hyundai Tucson. It is now being powered by a 2.0 Liter Diesel engine but it now lacks the offroad capability it used to have. But just the same, the Sportage was built with enough features and performance; owed to its durable body and parts.

Kia made sure their vehicles are sporting not just performance and elegance but absolute quality as well; thus, you can be sure that every Sportage you'll get has reliable parts to last a long time. They are taking quality control seriously; hence, each and every detail should be thoroughly checked before a vehicle could finally reach display centers. Parts including engines, transmission, brake system, radiator, hoods, grilles, doors, fog and driving lights, wheels and rims, chassis and suspension, windows, pedals, steering wheel and many others were among those that made up your Sportage are assured quality product. Aside from these, there are also other parts that made up a Sportage such as lug nuts, air filter, exhaust and exhaust tips, etc; all such were carefully engineered and designed so you'll surely have a feel of what's luxury and dynamic traits could be.
 
 

These parts are all standard in every Sportage you get to see in the market; but sometimes you'll need to replace one or two parts of your precious ride; maybe because a part is too old and is ruined, perhaps some parts were damaged due to accidents like collisions or bumps. If you're planning for performance and feature upgrades, you will also need part replacements. For such needs, there are lots of quality parts for your Kia Sportage. You can find parts in variations of colors, sizes, shapes, designs, makes and finishes; your choice of parts from these variations shall depend on what model type, model trim and model year of Kia Sportage you own. Whether you need auto parts, body parts or performance parts, there are lots of dealers that can provide you with your needs; you can get performance parts, replacement parts, factory parts, OEM parts, used Sportage parts or aftermarket Kia Sportage parts.

How to Ensure Optimal Performance from Your Kia Sportage

The Kia Sportage has been living up to its name by combining functionality with engaging driving dynamics. Whether you want to use it for city driving, as a family vehicle, or for road trips, you can count on the Kia Sportage to be your all-around vehicle. In order to keep it in great shape, however, you must do some maintenance on this crossover vehicle. Here are some easy tips that you can do to care for your Kia Sportage.

  • Check and adjust tire inflation pressure often.

While the Kia Sportage owner's manual recommends you check this every 7,500 miles or every 6 months, it is more ideal to check it as often as once a week. Note that this includes your spare tire, so you can be sure that you can use your spare anytime you need it. Neglecting to keep the pressure in check can affect your vehicle's fuel economy, handling, and comfort. Always bring a well-functioning tire pressure gauge, so you will never forget to do this easy maintenance task. If you are using a digital gauge, give it enough time to sample the pressure. If you put the digital gauge on the tire and then off in a heartbeat, you will get a very inaccurate reading.

  • Replace the cabin air filter on schedule or when you smell something bad.

The cabin air filter is responsible for cleaning the air that comes into your cabin through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. It catches small particles like dust, pollen, and others that can make you and your passengers feel unwell while in the vehicle. This is particularly crucial for those who have allergies or other respiratory problems. According to the owner's manual, you must do this on your Kia Sportage every 15,000 miles or so, depending on how often you drive and where you drive. However, if you notice a reduction in air flow or there is a persistent bad odor, then you must get a new cabin air filter even though you haven't reached the recommended mileage yet.

  • Inspect the exhaust system regularly.

Neglecting the exhaust system can be a very expensive mistake. To keep its components fully functional, you must take time to do an underbody inspection of your Kia Sportage regularly every 30,000 miles. If you find a broken hanger, replace it without delay even if the exhaust system seems to be level. Just having one of them broken means that as you drive, a whiplash effect goes through the clamped and welded joints. Eventually, these clamps will loosen and the joints will crack. If you do find a damaged joint, you can either replace it or cut away its piping and neck part, then install a short connector pipe and connect it to the remaining part of the joint. Meanwhile, the exhaust system's heat shields are prone to damage especially when you drive on rough roads. If you notice any missing shields or ones that are barely hanging on, replace them as soon as you can. If you find a dented shield, unbolt it, then check the entire exhaust system for damage.

Kia Sportage: Pushing the Boundaries of SUVs Through Elegance and Performance

In July 1993, Kia Motors of South Korea decided to release a crossover SUV to boost its sales in the said automobile department—the Sportage. With its unique blend of optional turbocharged features, style, and performance, the Sportage has swept the automobile industry by storm. Although it underwent various changes and challenges in the last 19 years, this Kia crossover SUV is still one of the best vehicles in the industry.

1993-2004: First generation

When the first models of the Sportage were released, they shared many parts with Mazda vehicles because of Kia's alliance with Mazda and Ford. This was the main reason why Europeans received German-built Sportages, while the rest received South Korean versions. Nonetheless, after three years of production, Kia came up with a longer model which was badged as the Sportage Grand. The Grand models had more luggage capacity and were 305 mm longer than the original versions. Also, in 1998, Sportages started to be manufactured with knee airbags making them the world's first vehicles to be equipped with such safety feature. Unfortunately, despite the innovations, this line was discontinued in South Korea and North America in 2002.

2004-2010: Second generation

In 2004, the Sportage was once again put into production, and it was built under the Elantra-based platform of Hyundai. But despite the facelift and V6 engine that could produce as much as 173 horsepower, the second generation Sportage still faced complaints because of its larger size and lack of offroad capabilities. Nevertheless, this generation received favorable safety and reliability reviews from Consumer Reports, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and insurance websites unlike the first generation. It also came in two trims: the LX and EX that is powered by an inline four-cylinder engine and six-cylinder engine respectively.

2010-present: Third generation

The current generation of the Kia Sportage debuted in 2010. It is powered by the same engine that is installed on the Hyundai Sonata 2.0T—the 2.0L CRDi 136 engine that can produce up to 184 horsepower.
