2020 Kia Forte Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? 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 I tow in a Kia Forte? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Forte towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Forte is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Forte transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Kia Forte transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Kia's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
