hi davey i have a carens 2005cdti and have thought of the chip myself ,i havent gone down that route yet mainly because of wondering if the engine is capable and basically strong enough to handle it?but there must be more expert users of the forum who could let us know as in the marketplace there are many units to be bought although some are just resisters in a box and are blxxdy useless

chip on the early sorento works great especialy the auto
as for the non change make sure your transmission oil is at correct level and correct type as if this oil get hot or overheats the gearbox will move in to "get home mode" and wont change with kick down or manual stick movement



oil should be Apolloil ATF kia part no 0450000140a do not use any other oil
