Questions About 2005 Kia Sportage’s Transmission

  • How much can I tow in a Kia Sportage? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Sportage towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 2005 Sportage’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Kia. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
