Questions About 2019 Kia Rio’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Rio towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Rio transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Kia Rio’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
