2021 Kia K5 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia K5? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small.

Double check your owner's manual to ensure your K5 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my K5 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Kia K5 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Kia, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
