2021 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Service

2021 Kia Sorento Drivetrain Service

Your Sorento’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Kia, from back to front. 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 2021 Kia Sorento, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2021 Kia Sorento drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Sorento might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 2021 Kia Sorento drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • How often should I come in for Kia Sorento differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
