Kia Sportage 2.0 SX (A)

The new Sportage is a sharp looking SUV on the outside but the big question is -does it have the substance to match its looks?

elviskoh Thanks to ex-Audi designer Peter Schreyer's, the styled somehow looks like Audi.. beautiful design!

edlaz Phoenix yellow it was, if I'm not mistaken. Design wise, it's quite the looker and it's probably going to continue Kia's sales momentum.

cttan456 Forte, Koup, Sorento, Soul, Sportage, K5...Kia has one of the best if not the best looking cars in their respective price categories

Mike_oneshift Having owned saloons for 37 years since I was 18 years old, I though of buying a SUV for a change and came across a write-up of how well the new Sportage delivers.

Went to the showroom at Ubi th...

WD45 hi mike_oneshift, that's a detailed account of the sportage... my experience was that the downshifts are still rather sluggish and am too surprised by the rather high revs before gears switch up.

Subaru Legacy GT 2.5 (A)

With the latest generation model, the Legacy GT seems to have grown more matured and sophisticated. Will its new found sophistication lead to a less exciting drive?

eugn86 Even the editor agrees that Subaru cars are "ungainly looking". Look at the Legacy, the side is so slab-sided that it could be used as a billard table. The rear bench seats are so flat too, lacking...

Totally agree.... Totally. but i suggest sacking the marketing department too... or revamping it at least, you know I am sure they are the ones leading the designers by the nose with so called re...

rcycool I like the new front design as one of Subaru's better efforts, but the rear looks like a hideous attempt at the rear of a 3 series coupe

zeenie Sorry, but i don't like how it looks front or back. Front: looks like a Nissan Maxima (old man's car!), back looks like a lexus (still old man's car!)

rapidmax Thanks steven, looks like i got to do the loose parts tracing.

I will bring it to the workshop sometime soon to check the gear issue. Thanks again!

Actually a lot of us who're driving the GLX as well are facing the same shifting problem, esp within the 1st 3 gears. It's due to the gearbox oil. Original gearbox oil seems to be giving insufficie...
