2005 Kia Questions and Answers


  • How to Carry Two 14 Foot Kayaks on the Roof of a 2005 Kia Rio
  • Even though a longer roof is preferred you can technically carry two 14 foot kayaks on the roof of your 2005 Kia Rio. However, you will need to make doubly sure the bow and stern for each is tied off to the vehicle. Starting with a roof rack I recommend a Thule square bar system composed of the following parts: Load bars, # THLB50 Traverse foot pack, # TH480 Fit kit, # THKIT1198 Then you will need a carrier. For 2 kayaks I recommend using 2 of the Hull-A-Port carriers, # TH834....

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2005 Kia Optima and 2008 Hyundai Tucson
  • For the 2005 Kia Optima, I have included a link to the installation instructions for Curt hitch # 24709. For the 2008 Hyundai Tucson, I have included a link to instructions for Curt hitch # 13526. The Curt hitch for the Tucson is the most popular hitch option for that vehicle. The Tucson will also have the higher towing capacity of the 2 vehicles if trailer weight is an issue. For the Optima I recommend going with the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24709 because it installs just a little...

  • Rack and Post Dimensions and Bolt Hole Pattern for the Bulldog Rack-and-Gear Jack # BD165412

The diameter of the post on the Bulldog Heavy-Duty Rack-and-Gear Jack, # BD165412, is 1-1/16 inches, and the overall width is 2 inches including the rack that is mounted on the side of the post. The rack measures 3/4 inches wide by 3/8 inches thick. The base of the gear and handle assembly is triangular and the bolt hole pattern is 3 inches on center.

  • Will the Thule Raceway Platform Rack # TH9003PRO Fit on a 2005 Kia Sorento SUV Without a Hitch
  • Yes, the Thule Raceway Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, item # TH9003PRO, can be used to carry 2 bikes on the 2005 Kia Sorento. We recently had a chance to test the Thule Raceway with the manufacturer representative here at out facility, and this rack is an excellent choice. It is super adjustable for any type of bike frame and for bikes of different dimensions and styles. We have a video review of this rack for you to check out that includes a road test with the rack mounted on a VW...

  • Exhaust and Spare Tire Interference with Hitch Install on 2005 Kia Sorento
  • I searched our customer reviews on the hitches available for the 2005 Kia Sorento and wasn't able to find any reported occurrences the exhaust rattling against the hitch for that vehicle. Hitch rattle can occur, because most vehicles use exhaust hangers and isolators that are flexible and allow the exhaust to move around a bit. If this movement allows with hitch too close to the hitch, this flexibility allows you to gently bend some of the exhaust hangers to allow for more space between...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity and Stabilization Strap for Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11679
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11679 for a Kia Spectra is rated at 200 lbs maximum tongue weight. You are correct in the description of torque being applied at greater distance, and I don't have any information on where they test that. I believe that additional length from the hitch receiver and torque associated with it is why Curt requires a stabilization strap # 18050 for your hitch when using a bike rack or other non-towing accessory. There is...

  • 1-1/4 Inch to 2 Inch Adapter to Carry Load Extender and Ladder on a 2005 Kia Rio
  • You would need adapter # HTAD since all of the trailer hitches for the 2005 Kia Rio are Class I trailer hitches. The use of an adapter or extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So if you installed Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24727 with a 200 pound tongue weight but then used the adapter, the 200 pound capacity would be reduced to 100 pounds. The combined weight of the load extender and anything on it would have to be less than 100 pounds.

  • Troubleshooting Wiring On 2005 Kia Sorento When Rewired Trailer Lights Do Not Function
  • I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains how to troubleshoot trailer wiring. It could be a number of things that are causing your trailer lights not to function. The wire kits we offer for your 2005 Kia Sorento require a converter included because the Sorento has a separate wiring system. This means the brake and turn signals are sent along separate wires. A couple of the causes for the trailer not to receive any voltage is that the converter is not properly connected...

This is a bolt-on installation and requires no welding or drilling for installation. I did some research on your Kia and found on page 5-33 that the towing capacity of your vehicle is 3,500-lbs total if you have brakes on the trailer. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900....

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike rack Recommendations for a 2005 Kia Amanti
  • For a trailer hitch for your 2005 Kia Amanti I recommend the Curt # C11450. This is a Class I hitch and has a limitation of supporting only 2 bikes on a bike rack and must be compatible with Class I bike racks. Please note that Curt requires the use of their Stabilizing strap # 18050 for all non trailer loads, such as a bike rack. Our most popular Class I compatible 2 bike rack is the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670. This is a platform style bike rack. The benefit is that it can carry a wide...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness For 2005 Kia Sorento
  • The trailer wire harness I recommend for your 2005 Sorento is the T-One, part # 118307. This harness plugs into the vehicle wiring behind the rear bumper to give you a 4-way trailer connector. There is no cutting or splicing into the vehicle wiring. I have attached a link to an installation video for this harness on a 2005 Sorento you can check out.

  • Fit of Thule Passage Trunk Mounted 3 Bike Rack # TH911XT on 2005 Kia Amanti
  • The Thule Passage Trunk Mount 3 Bike Rack, part # TH911XT would be a great fit for your 2005 Kia Amanti. The rack uses Thule's Fit Dial system to perfectly tailor itself to the profile of your Amanti. The Thule # TH982XT frame adapter would work great for you, but I'd recommend the Swagman version, part # 64005 which is less expensive and easier to use. The 64005 will work perfectly with the Passage.

  • Bike Adapter Bar and Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2005 Kia Amanti
  • I recommend using an adapter for each women's bike that you plan on carrying, especially if the bike does not have a upper frame bar. The adapter bar provides a location to secure the bike to the carrier. I have attached a review video of this adapter bar for you. The # TH982XT adapter will work with nearly any bike rack that requires an upper frame bar for mounting. The bar will work great with either the Thule Passage 2 # TH910XT or the Passage 3 # TH911XT that you referenced. Both...
