Questions About 2015 Kia Forte5’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Forte5 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Forte5's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Kia Forte5 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
