2018 Kia Rio Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 Kia Rio

Your Rio drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Kia, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Rio’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 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

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Kia Rio drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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 hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Kia Rio doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2018 Kia Rio drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
