Is There Any Difference Between Curt C55529 and Tekonsha 111401 For 2008 Kia Sportage V6  


You have TWO part numbers I find for my 2008 Kia Sportage EX V6 C55529 AND a 118401 . Which is correct and what is the difference between the two ??


Expert Reply:

Both the Curt # C55529 and the Tekonsha # 118401 are designed to fit on your 2008 Kia Sportage with the V6 engine; they both have the same functions and provide you with a 4 way plug for towing a trailer with your Sportage. The only difference aside from the manufacturer is that the Curt # C55529 can handle tail lights on the trailer that draw a bit more amperage (3 amps) compared to the Tekonsha # 118401 (2.1 amps); this would be especially helpful when towing a trailer with a lot of lights drawing power.

With all of that said, we've most often found that the Tekonsha harnesses and specifically their converter boxes, are a bit more reliable over time. For that reason the Tekonsha # 118401 would be my recommendation for your 2008 Kia Sportage. I've linked installation videos of both harnesses so you've got an easy to follow guide.
