2018 Kia Sorento Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2018 Sorento’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Sorento’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Kia Sorento transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Kia Sorento transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Sorento isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2018 Kia Sorento’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sorento’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
