2009 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2009 Kia Sorento

Your Sorento’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 your Sorento’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2009 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.

Kia Sorento Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2009 Kia Sorento drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Sorento might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Kia Sorento doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2009 Kia Sorento drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
