1995 Kia Sportage Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sportage’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sportage is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Sportage's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1995 Sportage’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
