Questions About 2014 Kia Forte5’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Forte5? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Forte5 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Forte5 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2014 Forte5’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
