Report: Software Update Available to Correct Transmission Issues
Kia Sportage Problem
Drive Train Affected: 2WD
Average Mileage: 45,652 mi (22,000 mi - 59,956 mi)
Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination. Software updates are commonly most effective on newer vehicles. Higher mileage vehicles may exhibit a similar symptom caused by a component failure. However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.
