My buddy towed a 2000lb trailer from the East Coast with a Prius..over the rockies..And I think that's got a smaller engine thanthe Kia.

I don't think I'd be super paranoid, but remember it's not a 5 liter engine either.

Just treat it with kid gloves and plan on using the slow lane up hills.   Maybe instrument it with the obdc to watch thetemp and inverter temp.
