2012 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Repair & Service

2012 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Service

Your Sorento drivetrain transfers power from your 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Kia Sorento, 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.
