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 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.
