2021 Kia Forte Transmission Service

Why is Your 2021 Forte’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Kia Forte transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Kia Forte transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Forte at all.

Questions About 2021 Kia Forte’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 small it is. 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? Maintaining your Kia Forte transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Kia. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
