2013 Kia Forte Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2013 Kia Forte

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Forte's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Forte and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 Kia Forte, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Kia's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Kia Forte Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2013 Kia Forte drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Kia could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Kia Forte doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2013 Kia Forte drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
