They're often easy to notice. 2017 Kia Sportage transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

2017 Kia Sportage Questions & Answers

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Sportage? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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.
  • When should I have my Sportage's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Kia Sportage transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
