2006 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Repair & Service

2006 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Sorento's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2006 Kia Sorento to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Kia's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Kia Sorento Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2006 Kia Sorento drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Kia Sorento may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Kia Sorento.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2006 Kia Sorento drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
