Kia Sportage: Roof rack
If the vehicle has a roof rack, you can load things on top of your vehicle. Crossrails and fixing components to adapt the roof rack on your vehicle may be obtained from an authorized Kia dealer.
NOTICE If the vehicle is equipped with a sunroof, be sure not to position cargo onto the roof rack in such a way that it could interfere with sunroof operation.
CAUTION вЂў When carrying cargo on the roof rack, take the necessary precautions to make sure the cargo does not damage the roof of the vehicle. вЂў When carrying large objects on the roof rack, make sure they do not exceed the overall roof length or width.
WARNING вЂў The following specification is the maximum weight that can be loaded onto the roof rack. Distribute the load as evenly as possible across the roof rack and secure the load firmly. Loading cargo or luggage above specification on the roof rack may damage your vehicle. вЂў The vehicle center of gravity will be higher when items are loaded onto the roof rack. Avoid sudden starts, braking, sharp turns, abrupt maneuvers or high speeds that may result in loss of vehicle control or rollover causing an accident. вЂў Always drive slowly and turn corners carefully when carrying items on the roof rack. Severe wind updrafts, caused by passing vehicles or natural causes, can cause sudden upward pressure on items loaded on the roof rack. This is especially true when carrying large, flat items such as wood panels or mattresses. This could cause the items to fall off the roof rack and cause damage to your vehicle or others around you. вЂў To prevent damage or loss of cargo while driving, check frequently before or while driving to make sure the items on the roof rack are securely fastened.
