2017 Kia Forte5 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. Defying your Forte5 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • 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. 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.
