2018 Kia Niro Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2018 Niro’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Kia Niro transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Kia Niro transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Niro isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2018 Kia Niro’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Niro’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Niro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Niro's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 Niro’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
