Sell My Junk Kia Sportage
Just how much money can I get if I sell my car for cash? When determining the price of your Kia Sportage, one of the most important factors to keep in mind is the curb weight of the car. This model has a curb weight of 3,157 pounds. What this means for owners of junk vehicles is that you can easily see anywhere between $300 and $2500 when selling your car to an auto scrap dealer.
When we make offers on junk cars, we tend to look at certain factors that tell our expert appraisers how much the car is worth. These factors include:
• The car’s age;
• The car’s mileage;
• Its location;
• The condition of the vehicle;
• Local scrap metal prices.
With these items correctly appraised, we have a base price that we can then raise based on the presence of valuable accessories or other salvageable parts. For example, The Kia Sportage is known to have problems with its AC compressor clutch, which makes the air conditioner unable to push out cold air. These cars also occasionally develop leaking fuel tanks. If your Sportage has a working AC compressor clutch or a fuel tank in good condition, it may earn more on the salvage market because of it.
Why the Kia Sportage? Its History and Value
Kia began producing the Spotrage in 1993, introducing the compact SUV to its lineup after cementing an alliance with Ford and Mazda. As a result of this arrangement, Kia received parts and technology from Ford while offering inexpensive Korean manufacturing facilities to the conglomerate, so the Kia Sportage shares many features and design capabilities with Mazda and Ford vehicles of the time.
Unfortunately for Kia, the Sportage’s beginning on the global market was a tenuous one. The first generation of the vehicle didn’t reach its full sales potential and the second-generation models released between the years 1997 and 2002 were recalled twice for wheel dismounting problems. These problems were eventually resolved with a 2004 release of an updated Kia Sportage that was celebrated as one of the safest, most reliable vehicles on the road and consequently, one of the least expensive vehicles to insure.
