The auto in a sportage is as bullet proof as they get!!!

The Baja 1000 winning kia sportage ran an essentially stock auto, and it had 180hp to the wheels! I've met the current owner of the thing...

I current have 180K miles on mine, and I flog it off-road regularly, I tow my 16' boat/ dirt bike trailer often, and all I've done to it is a pan drop and fluid change...


"Does this part need to be in there?"
