Very hard to say. It will depend on how well it was maintained and how it was driven. All I can is is if you are looking at buying a used one, buy a low mile car.

I have 2017 kia buy one in every color i love it so much!!!

I can potentially purchase a 2005 Kia Sportage that was owned by a grandmother and only has 70k miles- is that a good car to invest 3k in?

I would think so! Especially for 3000

I have a 2007 Kia Sportage my husband is a uber and lyft driver and its our only car for now.. runs great only minor fixings 176999 miles.. advice to keep the oil changes up :-)

Had a 2004 Kia Sorento LX 4×4 from 2005 to 2012. I put 283,000+ miles on it. Absolutely no issues but minor stuff.. like ball joints, wheel bearing, 1 tune up. I totalled it out in a rollover. I miss my truck. Have had 2013 Kia Optima EX since the end of 2012.....i have only put a starter and struts, and tires.. no issues.

I have a 2015 Kia sportage with 77,000 miles on it...I travel 100 miles + a day back and forth to work and was beginning to get worried that I should think about selling it, but would like to say it has never had any issues...I can see from these posts I'm in good shape, I've been maintaining my Kia at the Kia dealership at all the recommended mileage services times...I think I'll keep my Kia or trade it in for a new Kia instead of getting a different make. thanks.
