Kia Rio5 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

2010 Kia Rio5 Questions & Answers

  • 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.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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 2010 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
