Questions About 2020 Kia Rio’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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. 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 2020 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
