2008 Kia Rondo Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2008 Rondo’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Kia Rondo transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Kia Rondo transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Rondo at all.

2008 Kia Rondo Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Rondo towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Rondo's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 Rondo’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Kia's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
