at least one dealer in our area has offered to add leather to an LX model for around $1500-$1800. We want the NAV with Leather but don't like the "premium" dual a/c and we really don't like the new EX "Daisy" wheels either. So basically you can come out with a leather and NAV equipped LX for around $3k less than the EX with NAV/leather/sunroof. Might be worth asking about. Now if they can just produce enough of these cars to fill the dealers requests. In our area it seems like the dealers are all having to beg the factory to get more than a few at a time..

I think 394 a month is a pretty good deal considering you're putting nothing down. I am also trying to lease the 2011 Kia Sportage EX AWD with the premium leather package. I've been offering to put down $3,000 and the best they've given me so far is $350 a month. I'm about to go to another dealership and see what they say. Really and truly I'm trying to get my payment down to just under $300 a month (if I could get $295 that would be amazing). Does anyone know if getting the 2011 Kia Sportage EX AWD with premium leather package, for $300 a month with $3000 down is possible? I really love the style and all the add ons and really have my heart set on it but don't want to pay more than 300 a month.
#105 of 149 2011 Sportage LX with NAV and Leather

Just bought a Black Cherry/Black 2011 Sportage LX FWD with convenience package, Navigation and dealer installed leather for $24,600 + TTL. Not a screaming deal off sticker but the inventory is so low here they aren't dealing much yet. The sticker with add ons for leather, window tint, and a pin stripe was $26,100. We don't like the EX's 18" daisy wheels, push button start or premium climate control so this LX saved us about $3500 more than a similarly equipped EX. We didn't finance it, to bad there is no cash back, as the financing was the only incentive they have on the Sportage now. It's amazing when you pay cash for a car how the top of the line models aren't as appealing as they used to be.

I was passed yesterday by a new Sportage and noticed just how much of a narrow slit the rear window is. Add in headrests and C pillars and the view out the back must be terrible. I know you can get a camera for backing up and use your mirrors but I like to keep an eye on what's directly behind me while driving and that looked like a mess from that respect. Side windows were a bit narrow too. Don't know if I would like that lack of a view out from what I'm used to.

I love the looks of the '11 Sportage, and the interior seems to be well laid out, but my main concern would be with reliability/build quality. I've never owned a Korean built vehicle before, and having owned nothing but Japanese built vehicles over the last almost decade now, I'm leary about how well the Korean makes would hold up in the long run. I know I've read lots and lots of comments and reviews by both vehicle owners and in magazine articles stating that the build quality of the Korean makes have come a long way over the last few years, but one has got to wonder just how close they are to the Japanese in terms of build quality. My Japanese vehicles have been very reliable, and the last thing I want is buyer's remorse because I ended up with an unreliable vehicle. It's just that Japanese makes aren't really offering any models that appeal to our needs, or I'd just stick with them. How's Kia's reliability compared to the Japanese makes?
