2021 Kia Telluride Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Kia's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Telluride towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Telluride is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Telluride's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2021 Telluride’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
