@mr.macspot superb thanks. Aerodynamics of a brick 🤣🙂With the some 2016 models, if you can test drive while the car and this weather is cold, listen for a creaking sound when steering. It only happens in cold weather and there is a fix involving replacing the top of the suspension units. Also some people found the steering to be twitchy, again there is a fix which involves some magic grease (use the search function at the top of the forums for more info).
Agree with Turnup, service history is vital, the Kia seven year warranty is dependant on them. The SD stores the maps, if its not in the car the sat nav won't work.
Don't get me wrong I love the Sportage it's a great car (I'm on my second), but don't buy one if you worry about MPG, they are big old lumps with all the aerodynamics of a brick.
Hi why will I need the manual? I'll check it has it. ThanksCheck that the service history is up to date and if non dealer services you will need all the detailed invoices specifying parts and fluids used, and that the annual bodywork inspections have been performed (also recorded in service book). Without these any warranty claim might be rejected.
You will need the manual..
Also check that the satnav works - a surprising number of second user Sportages turn up without the SD card (contains the maps) and they are dear to replace.
