2020 Kia Rio Drivetrain Repair

All About 2020 Kia Rio Drivetrain Service

Your Rio’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2020 Kia Rio to maintain its performance 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2020 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 hard to put a timeframe on 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 2020 Kia Rio? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  • Can Kia service save me money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • What are signs my Kia drivetrain is damaged? Hear noises toward the back of your Kia Rio? See fluid leaking? Having issues turning? These could all be signs of drivetrain damage you don't want to ignore. Take action quickly to catch repairs or replacements before something more severe happens.
  • How often should I come in for Kia Rio differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
