Is it possible to do a transmission swap to a 2006 Kia Sorento LX?

Asked by Feb 02, 2017 at 04:48 PM about the 2006 Kia Sorento LX 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I want to swap my transmission to manual transmission. Although other parts
and functions of the car are okay, I just want to know if it's possible and at
what cost. Also, I don't want to lose the 4x4 function of the car. Thanks.

The 2006 Kia Sorento came in a 5speed manual as well as an automatic. So you can technically pick up a damaged or beat up Sorento with a manual trans and swap the parts over to your while retaining the 4x4. The issue is while the cost of the parts might be low, the labor to rip out the old and install the other old manual stuff will be high. Probably as much as what your vehicle is worth. So it's always advisable when wanting to change things like transmission, it's almost better to sell your current vehicle and purchase another with the manual trans. HTH's.
