I downloaded the 2001 Kia Sportage owners manual and it say you can tow the vehicle at no more than 55mph and no more than 400 miles on all four wheels. If towing father or faster remove driveshaft and can tow unlimited.

Thank you, that's great. Does that apply to the one's with the 4wd option too? or do they need something special? I tried to download the user manual and it gave me one for a Sears ride on mower. I think someone was poking fun :). Thanks again

ago I found the download at ...and it does include AWD, it's comes in a pdf file that you will need Adobe Reader or a reader like it. There are a dozen to choose from, this one is free, a couple of them want you to pull your credit card out first and they go from $20 to 30, all are printable. One sent me to a porn site. They are sneaky that way. There are lots of them on eBay too.
