2006 Kia Spectra Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? 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.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
