2009 Kia Sportage Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 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 2009 Sportage’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
