2016 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 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 2016 Kia Sorento to maintain its performance power. Follow Kia's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2016 Kia Sorento drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Kia Sorento may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. 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 2016 Kia Sorento drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
