Hi ive bought a 2005 Kia Sorento because I was told they were great for towing. Ive been out this morning towing my horse trailer and found my car to be struggling, tbh even when driving and not towing it feels like its got no guts :-( does anyone know why?

I've towed a heavy boat with my 2.5CRDi auto, no issues at all.
That's 170HP whereas yours is 140HP. Any other symptoms, misfiring, smoky exhaust?

I'm having trouble with the performance on the 08 Sorento, when ever I'm going up a hill or a slightly rised road i need to change to 3rd then eventually 2nd gear, is this normal?
