Questions About 2015 Kia Sportage’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. 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 it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sportage’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Sportage's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Kia Sportage’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
