2017 Kia Rio Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2017 Rio’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Kia Rio transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Kia Rio transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Rio isn’t working at all.

2017 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Rio's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 Rio’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Kia, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
