2017 Kia Forte5 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2017 Kia Forte5

Your Forte5 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Kia, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Forte5 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 Kia Forte5, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Kia's recommendations.

What Are Kia Forte5 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2017 Kia Forte5 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Kia Forte5 may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Kia Forte5 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2017 Kia Forte5? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
