Sportages at Jim Butler Kia are best dependable small SUVs

J.D. Power ranks Sportage as lead small SUV in 2015 Vehicle Dependability Study

In a survey of vehicle dependability, the Kia Sportage came out on top in the small SUV category according to J.D. Power’s 2015 Vehicle Dependability Study (DVS). Jim Butler Kia in Chesterfield Valley is your home for a new Kia Sportage available in AWD and 2WD!
The VDS is industry-wide and studies problems experienced during the past year by original owners of three-year old vehicles (2012 model year). VDS measures the long-term quality of vehicles, including new technologies and features currently available to buyers.

Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100) — the lower the score, the higher long-term quality level.  The Sportage’s score of 129 propelled it to the top of seven small SUVs. This latest recognition for Sportage follows the model’s two consecutive J.D. Power Initial Quality Survey (IQS) awards in 2013 and 2014.

“We believe the results of the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study demonstrate Kia’s on-going commitment to quality and obsession with craftsmanship in building our world-class products,” John Crowe, vice president, service and aftersale operations, Kia Motors America, said.

The 2015 Sportage, available at Jim Butler Kia in St. Louis, has a wide variety of features across three trim levels. stylish 18-inch alloy wheels, turn signals on the outside mirrors, a rear camera display and backup warning system, roof rails, a rear spoiler, fog lamps and chrome body trim and door handles along with dual exhaust and LED accent lighting give some authority to the Sportage. The top-of-the-line Sportage SX adds a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged GDI engine producing 260-horsepower under the hood. Combine this with the dependability of the Sportage, and Jim Butler Kia can provide you with a reliable, fun family vehicle.
