Give it a nice full service to be sure, if xs or xt model requires a kia only oil for transfer box, and make sure the fuel filter is changed regualrly.

THANKS murphwix
its an XE model(30,000mlies), handbook says Dexron111 for transfer box ( fill for lfe) am I correct in assuming this doesn't need (or can't be) changed?

I intend to havemy local garage change all filters & oils engine, diffs etc (wherever this is possible )& check pads/discs ...as you say a good service/check over should keep things right

any other ideas suggestions gratefully received

Thanks again

Check the fron prop joint for play and that they get plenty of lube, mine snapped and it does some serious damage if you are unlucky. A quick check is well woth it
