2021 Kia Seltos Drivetrain Repair & Service

2021 Kia Seltos Drivetrain Service

Your Seltos’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 the most complex systems in your Seltos and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2021 Kia Seltos, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Kia's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Kia Seltos 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 2021 Kia Seltos drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Kia could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Kia Seltos drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2021 Kia Seltos? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • When should I come in for Kia Seltos differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
