Kia Stinger CK 2018-2020 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Special driving conditions / Rocking the vehicle

Then, shift back and forth between R (Reverse) and any forward gear in vehicles equipped with an Automatic Transmission. Do not race the engine, and spin the wheels as little as possible. If you are still stuck after a few tries, have the vehicle pulled out by a tow vehicle to avoid engine overheating and possible damage to the transmission.

WARNING - Sudden Vehicle Movement

Do not attempt to rock the vehicle if people or objects are nearby. The vehicle may suddenly move forward or backwards as it becomes unstuck.

CAUTION - Vehicle rocking

Prolonged rocking may cause engine overheating, transmission damage or failure, and tire damage.

CAUTION - Spinning tires
