Kia Sedona - won't downshift
October 12, 2006
Driving the Kia Sedona with the automatic transmission in a hilly area is sometimes an adventure.
The Sedona is normally smooth and easy to drive. But when trying to lumber up a steep hill, the transmission would not downshift. I had to switch to manual mode so that I could use 2nd gear.
It was just too slow and laborious.
Running in high gears is great for maximum fuel efficiency but not appropriate for all driving situations.
