2016 Kia Rio Drivetrain Service

2016 Kia Rio Drivetrain Service

Your Rio drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Rio and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2016 Kia Rio, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Kia's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Kia Rio Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2016 Kia Rio drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Kia Rio may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Kia Rio drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2016 Kia Rio? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
