2009 Kia Sedona Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sedona is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Sedona's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Kia Sedona transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Kia's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
