2016 Kia Sedona Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Sedona towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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? Caring for your Kia Sedona’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
