Questions About 2007 Kia Rio5’s Transmission

  • 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. 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. Defying your Rio5 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Rio5 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2007 Rio5’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
