Kia Sportage known problems

Some of the common problems or complaints owners have about the Kia Sportage are:

  • The engine becoming idle or stalling while the car is in motion. This issue has often been connected to a broken EGI control relay or a fuel pump that's failed.
  • The check engine light popping on randomly might be caused by a leak occurring at the intake ports, by the rubber regulator being destroyed or by regulator leaks.
  • Gas leaks issues. Steel fuel-storage tanks have been seen to leak gasoline, which can produce a fire.
  • The electronic stability control (ESC) light popping on. The ESC role is to stabilize the remaining three tires if one becomes useless, but the light is not supposed to be on constantly.
