2012 Kia Forte Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Kia's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Forte's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Kia Forte’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Kia, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
