Willabeast - My LX V6 4WD came with all of the above. I believe the combination of the V6 & 4WD adds more features. I remember reading that on one of the Kia websites. I paid almost to the dollar what you paid - I am in Halifax.
Interesting about the AM. Did you go through the stereo manual? Was that any help? Did you check to see if your antenna is damaged?
I love mine too, and I think my wife loves it more than me.

That's an amazing story, sorry about the ankle. Good to hear though. The Tucson came out with 5's across the board in crash ratings - so the Sportage will likely have the same. Unfortunately there is no schedule for it to be tested. The Tucson got tested because Hyundai sells alot more cars.
Good luck with the ankle.

You will get results.

I have a LX V6 4WD, and that sounds high. I talked to a couple of people, and everyone that I have chatted with who is Canadian paid something in the $27K -$28K range. I think the top of the line is just under $30K - i.e. with Leather.
That is just my experience. I was just chatting with someone on this site, who paid $27,250 I believe.

I could be wrong though, I had a trade-in which changed my price. Your talking all in - no trade-in?

Did this impact your warranty?

I have seen the replacements. Let me think about this, first check Falcon Racing.

You have to be careful not to get mixed up with US & UK gallons.

I tried out the steepest hill in the city yesterday. Its a very short street, that is crazy steep. I went up it with some snow, slush and ice. I had no problems. The Sportage approach angle is 28.9% and the departure angle is 29.9%. I have never gone up or down a road that steep though.

I am 6'2" and while I have no sunroof, I have 3 inches of head room left - so it shouldn't be an issue. My brother in law 6'2.5" 225lb. found the front seat very comfortable. I have had a couple of Mazda's and headroom has been an issue.
With regards to availability - why don't you ask about demonstrators. I got ours that way. The General Manager was driving a LX V6 4WD, and I asked if I could buy it from him. He was happy to sell it, but he was sad to see it go. Otherwise I would have had to wait also.
Just an idea.
