2015 Kia Rio Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2015 Rio’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Rio’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2015 Kia Rio transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Kia Rio transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Rio isn’t working at all.

2015 Kia Rio Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Rio’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Rio is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Rio transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2015 Rio’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Kia. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
