Is your Sportage starting to look a little tired and nearing the end of its usable life?

Common Reasons for Scrapping a Kia
Kias have a reputation for being incredibly reliable – hence that brilliant 7 year warranty – but even the most reliable of cars go wrong every now and again. Your Kia may have developed a fault that’s just not worth repairing, or perhaps you’ve been involved in an accident resulting in significant damage to the car. You may even find that it’s not the car, but a change in your own personal circumstances that result in you no longer needing your car, perhaps you no longer have that lengthy commute, or you no longer need a large SUV.

Kia are known for offering a wide range of hybrid and electric models.
